Title Race Slow Down? Sundowns Star To Miss Two Games

One of Mamelodi Sundowns’ attacking players will play no part in two of their league encounters next month, while the Brazilians look to maintain their top spot. 

Sundowns went to the top of the Absa Premiership league standings last night, after a 2-1 win over Maritzburg United, where the Brazilians were reduced to 10-men in the 60th minute after Gaston Sirino picked up a second yellow card booking, which resulted in a send-off.

The South American will now miss Sundowns’ league clashes against SuperSport United at home and Baroka FC away after the international break.

Sirino has made 19 Absa Premiership appearances for Masandawana, scoring three goals and assisting five, is one of the most influential players in the Brazilians’ attack, while also getting shouts from the public as one of the potential Footballer of the Season candidates. 

However, he will now miss out on two crucial matches, in what could be regarded as ‘cup finals’ for Sundowns, as they look to maintain their position at the summit of the log.

The Brazilians returned to the top of the log last night, with a three-point gap over Orlando Pirates and finally, no games in hand. 

However, number one and number two will still need to come up against each other in April in a potential league-deciding encounter, while Cape Town City, Bidvest Wits and SuperSport United keep the pressure on the title race. 

However, with three games left to be played before Sundowns and Pirates lock horns, it remains to be seen what the league standings will look like come next month.
