Over the past weekend, the DStv Premiership and CAF Confederation Cup took centre stage with Chippa United easing their relegation troubles with a goalless draw away to Swallows FC to safeguard their PSL status. Stellenbosch FC caused a major upset by being only the third side to take maximum points against Mamelodi Sundowns with their impressive 3-0 win.
Kaizer Chiefs scored a solitary goal through defender, Ramahlwe Mphahlele, to beat Sekhukhune United at Ellis Park Stadium, a result that saw them move to the fourth spot on the log. Baroka FC continued with their impressive winning streak with a confidence-boosting 3-1 win against SuperSport United at Peter Mokaba Stadium on Saturday afternoon. Bakgakga will be hoping to carry the winning momentum into their last game of the season away to Maritzburg United, crossing fingers that the other results also favor them, in order to retain their place in the elite league.
TS Galaxy played to a goalless draw against Marumo Gallants FC and will be visiting Chippa United for their last game of the season in search of the victory in order to move away from the relegation zone.
Orlando Pirates secured their place in the CAF Confederation Cup on aggregate, despite losing the second leg of the semi-finals 1-0 against Ahl Ahli Tripoli at Orlando Stadium on Sunday night. The first leg 2-0 win for the Buccaneers proved enough to book their spot for this Friday’s much-anticipated final in Nigeria against Morocco’s RS Berkane at Godswill Akpabio international Stadium in Uyo.
