How Sundowns Can Boot Chiefs Out Of The Title Race…

Kaizer Chiefs Could Be Out Of The Title Race Before Tonight

By Soccer Laduma - Apr 14, 2018 10:57 AM
Mamelodi Sundowns can officially end Kaizer Chiefs’ slim hopes of lifting the Absa Premiership title this weekend, regardless of how the Amakhosi do against Platinum Stars. 
 
 
Chiefs’ head coach, Steve Komphela, has repeatedly stated that he will not be giving up on the league title until it is mathematically impossible for them to leapfrog the current leaders, but that fat lady he’s spoken about could start to sing this weekend. 
 
The Amakhosi have 12 points left to play for before their 2017/18 season comes to an end, and are currently 10 points behind Masandawana at the top of the table. Even if Chiefs win this weekend, should Sundowns get all three points against Bidvest Wits, then it will officially be a two-horse race between them and Orlando Pirates. 
 
Meanwhile, Chiefs are also on the verge of picking up their lowest points tally in a decade. The maximum points that they can achieve is 51 – which is one better than last season – although if they pick up less than four more points then it will be their worst league campaign since before the 2007/08 season that saw them finish sixth. 
 
 
Sundowns already have one hand on the trophy going into their last five games, but Pirates will be keen to try and keep up the pressure on them as they maintain a hope of overturning their current lead of four points.
 
Chiefs, however, could be out of the running even before they take on Dikwena tomorrow.

Hunt wouldnt like to give false hope to chiefs and pirates. Hunt will play not to win. Kompela refused to be an assistant at bafana. He deserves eternal trophyless condemnation

Sundowns must just win the league. I know the battle for the next five years will be between Pirates and Chiefs. Sundowns has an ageing squad. We can't watch pirates running away even if Sundowns can win the league more than us, our original nemesis is Pirates. As as pirates dominate chiefs will up their socks

“It w0uld be special f0r me because I w0uld have w0n the league with tw0 different clubs and different pers0nalities in these teams. And it w0uld be my first as Mamel0di Sund0wns captain, s0 it w0uld mean a l0t t0 me,” says Kekana, wh0 has already made hist0ry by bec0ming the first Sund0wns captain t0 lift the CAF Champi0ns League tr0phy in 2016. “L00king back at where I c0me fr0m, I never imagined that I w0uld be the captain 0f Mamel0di Sund0wns wh0 wins tr0phies. I th0ught it w0uld be a big resp0nsibility t0 manage big stars at this club, until the pe0ple ar0und me sh0wed me the bigger picture and why they ch0se me t0 be captain. It w0uld be s0mething that w0uld be special t0 me [t0 win the title]. I’d even get a tatt00.“ Bra Hl0mph0 Kekana c0ncluded
