Champs Sundowns End The Season With A Point

Absa Premiership Report: Bloemfontein Celtic v Mamelodi Sundowns 12 May 2018

Absa Premiership
 
Result: Bloemfontein Celtic 0-0 Mamelodi Sundowns
 
Date: 12 May 2018
 
Venue: Dr. Petrus Molemela Stadium 
 
Mamelodi Sundowns ended their Absa Premiership title-winning season with a point after they were held to a 0-0 draw by Bloemfontein Celtic on Saturday.
 
 
The Brazilians secured the league title in the penultimate round of matches and were looking to end the season in style.
 
Celtic, on the other hand, were chasing a top-eight spot, although their fate was not in their hands.
 
It was the visitors who enjoyed most of the possession in the early stages, although both sides were let down by the crossing and passing in the final third.
 
Celtic managed to carve out the game's first chance, although an unmarked Shikweni sent his header straight at goalkeeper Kennedy Mweene.
 
Pitso Mosimane's men dominated possession for most of the first half but they struggled to carve out chances as Jeremy Brockie cut a frustrated figure at times.
 
George Lebese, who had a quiet first half, nearly broke the deadlock shortly after the break but his goal-bound effort was cleared off the line by Alfred Ndengane.
 
Celtic opted for a change 10 minutes into the second half as Given Mashikinya was introduced as they went in search of an opening goal.
 
Pitso Mosimane's men continued to dominate, but they could not find a way past a stubborn Celtic defence.
 
Mosimane responded by withdrawing Lebese for super substitute Anthony Laffor for the final 15 minutes of the second half.
 
Sundowns seemed to happy to claim a point as they lacked urgency in attack while Celtic threw numbers forward in search of a winning goal.
 
In the end, neither side could find a winning goal and they were forced to settle for a share of the spoils.
 
 
Here's how they lined up:
 
Celtic: 30. Tignyemb, 13. Letsoalo, 22. Rikhotso, 27. Ndengane, 25. Gordinho, 3. Pfumbizai, 33. Motshegwa, 23. Shikweni, 7. Hotto, 8. Phalane, 45. Nyundu.
 
Subs: 34. Dambe, 17. Mabaso, 4. Dlamini, 50. Masuku, 18. Mashikinya, 24. Maema, 6. Maruping.
 
Sundowns: 1. Mweene, 38. Zulu, 20. Ngcongca, 29. Bangaly, 6. Arendse, 13. Mabunda, 17. Lebese, 19. Brockie, 7. Manyisa, 27. Morena, 22. Tau.
 
Subs: 31. Razak, 8. Kekana, 26. Sirino, 32. Madisha, 4. Langerman, 37. Sekotlong, 28. Laffor.

@Mail4lyf: Jealousy is a negative emotion. We are playing Barcelona, friendly or not, Messi or not it is still a big game for us. If it was chimpanzees or those construction workers playing Barcelona we were never gonna hear the end of it. Sit down and let us be, We are Mamelodi Sundowns!

@Khaya Shozi : I fully agree with you indeed,generally the season was poor but Downs did extremely well and enough to make sure they come out tops...hopefully big teams like Pirates and Chiefs will come to the party next season to make the League much interesting,enjoyable and unpredictable.
