Sundowns Edge Closer To 8th Title?

Mamelodi Sundowns are edging much closer to their eighth Absa Premiership title.

The Brazilians recorded a win over Golden Arrows last night, extending their lead over Orlando Pirates to six points.

All that is left for Sundowns to do is claim four points in their upcoming three fixtures, which means that one win and one draw will be sufficient for the Brazilians to be crowned Absa Premiership champions, if Pirates do not drop any points in their upcoming fixtures.

However, it won’t be an easy road for Head Coach Pitso Mosimane, as they will be coming up against Maritzburg United who are eager to clinch a third-place finish to book their spot in the CAF Confederations Cup competition; Ajax Cape Town who are struggling at the bottom of the league standings; and Bloemfontein Celtic who are fighting for a place in the top eight of the competition.

Before coming up against Maritzburg in the league next week, Sundowns will first gear up for a semi-final clash against the same Team Of Choice side, with both teams vying for a spot in the final of the Nedbank Cup. 

Sundowns will travel away to the Harry Gwala Stadium on Saturday, April 22, and it remains to be seen whether Mosimane’s side will edge closer to a league double.
