Classic Clashes Between Sundowns And Chiefs

As Mamelodi Sundowns prepare to take on Kaizer Chiefs in the DStv Premiership this weekend, we look back at some of their most memorable clashes in the last 10 years.

These two clubs have come up against each other in some intriguing matches over the the years, with some high-scoring encounters entertaining both sets of supporters.

Who could forget Stuart Baxter's first official match in charge of Amakhosi in 2012? Sundowns ran riot in a 4-1 victory in the MTN8, with debutants Edward Manqele and Thamsanqa Sangweni getting their names on the scoresheet.

Chiefs went on to win the league that season, but Sundowns bounced back the following campaign to win the 2013/14 title. And a key victory towards lifting the title was the 1-0 win over the Soweto giants in the second half of the campaign. Teko Modise scored what will go down as one of the most memorable goals in this tie, netting from his own half after Itumeleng Khune misjudged the bounce of the ball.

The sides met in the 2015 Telkom Knockout final and Pitso Mosimane Sundowns team walked away 3-1 victors over Steve Komphela's men. It was a game not short of any drama, as Amakhosi failed to convert two penalties in regulation time.

In October 2017, Amakhosi registered a 2-1 victory over Sundowns, as Bernard Parker and Siyabonga Ngezana gave Chiefs a 2-0 lead. Themba Zwane pulled one back for Sundowns in the final 10 minutes of the game.

In January 2019, Sundowns recorded a 2-1 victory over Amakhosi, thanks to an error from then Chiefs goalkeeper Virgil Vries, who gave Lebohang Maboe a chance to score into an empty net.

Earlier this season, Sundowns cruised to a 3-0 victory over Gavin Hunt's men, outclassing them at FNB Stadium.
