Nine Teams That Could End 2017 Above Chiefs & Pirates

Kaizer Chiefs & Orlando Pirates May Not Finish 2017 High Up The Table

By Soccer Laduma - Dec 12, 2017 03:33 PM
Orlando Pirates and Kaizer Chiefs may be sitting in second and third place respectively at the moment, but games in hand elsewhere could see them quickly slide down the table. 
 
See each club's maximum points in the gallery above
 
The Soweto Giants have managed to win just four Absa Premiership games out of 14 so far this season, and sit on 20 and 19 points respectively as they go into their final matches of the year this coming weekend.
 
However, while Pirates and Chiefs have just one game to play, several teams around them have two or more before the end of December as they look to try and leapfrog their way up the division and close the gap on Mamelodi Sundowns at the top.
 
 
Both Maritzburg United and Free State Stars could potentially overtake the Amakhosi on Wednesday night when they face Sundowns and SuperSport United, while Matsatsantsa could give their title chances a big boost if they were to win all three of their remaining matches.
 
Depending on results there are a total of nine different teams that could end the year above the teams from Soweto, and though mathematically they could also finish 2017 in the top spot, the chances are highly unlikely for either of them. 
 
 
Sundowns and SuperSport have three games left to play, while Maritzburg, Ea Lla Koto, Cape Town City and Bloemfontein Celtic all have two before the year is out. Those six, along with Golden Arrows, Baroka and Chippa United could all send the Glamour Boys and Buccaneers sliding down the Absa Premiership table.
 
In total there are 12 games left in the division before the year comes to a close, and with the league so tightly contested this year, the look of the log could change drastically over the course of the next week.

Mamelodi Sundowns are in a race to sign Uruguayan winger Gaston Sirino and Bolivian forward Gilbert Alvarez Vargas in time for their 2018 CAF Champions League campaign. Indidane last week revealed Sundowns are chasing the South American pair. "We are trying to strengthen the team. We hope we can get those guys to come here," said Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane.

As for the nappyrena based club, theirs is even more complicated following a fallout between Jessica and her father, Kaizer Motaung over unpaid bonus, a clear indication that the beloved son, Bobby is dictating not only football matters, but also financial affairs, call it family feud or family conflict or a minor grievance, but it is set to affect the team negatively...watch the space.....

This Chiefs,Pirates and Downs 24hrs articles are now juiceless and boring. Cowditor, some of us do watch FSS vs Ajax. We are not one-sided football supporters. Next time, just visit Baroka,Celtic,FSS,PLK City,Dikwena and any other so-called small teams, so that we can learn more about their players,injuries,contracts and markets.
