Davids Hands League Title To Sundowns: Best Team In Africa

Davids goes head-to-head with Pitso Mosimane this evening as the two meet for the second time this campaign, and Davids will be hoping for a similar result after beating Sundowns 1-0 in the MTN8 back in August.
The Team of Choice have scored seven goals in their last two matches after going eight games without one, in all competitions, and that confidence could work in their favour against the 2016 CAF Champions League winners.
But the 36-year-old knows that it won’t be easy in Tshwane this evening against what he calls ‘the best team in the league by far’.
Speaking ahead of the encounter, he told Maritzburg’s official website, “Sundowns are the best team in the league by far, nobody will catch them. They have won the league already, it’s theirs. Yes, SuperSport can win their games in hand, but I still believe it’s Sundowns. They are by far the best team in the league, the best team in Africa.”
Sundowns are two points clear at the Absa Premiership summit despite having three games in hand on second-placed Orlando Pirates, and could potentially be five points clear by the time this evening’s games are over.
