Today should have been a big day in the Absa Premiership title race, it could even have been a day when the league title was decided, but instead, we wait…

Kaizer Chiefs were due to host Mamelodi Sundowns and FNB Stadium this evening, with Ernst Middendorp taking on Pitso Mosimane as the two South African heavyweights battle it out for the 2019/20 title.

It should have been a day when the likes of Samir Nurkovic and Themba Zwane kept up the race for the Golden Boot award, but the standstill caused by the Coronavirus outbreak means that that game – and no other – will be taking place.

There is a press conference today where Irvin Khoza and Kaizer Motaung will be joined by Multichoice’s Imtiaz Patel as well as Health Minister, Dr Zweli Mkhize, and the Sport, Arts and Culture Minister, Nathi Mthethwa – a presser that could offer some light into the situation, but a Chiefs v Sundowns title-decider could still be some time away.

As things stand, Chiefs are four points clear of Masandawana at the top of the table with eight games to play, but Mosimane’s men have nine games and would have been confident of closing the gap.

League games between Chiefs and Sundowns have only ended as a 0-0 draw twice since 2014, so goals were almost a certainty, but we’ll have to wait and see…

In total, 27 Absa Premiership games have been postponed indefinitely up to now, a number that will reach 29 by the end of this evening, and as things stand there is no end in sight.
