Sundowns & Chiefs Drop Places In African Rankings

Mamelodi Sundowns were ranked first in Africa, but after losing the final match of the CAF Champions League group stage, the club dropped to fifth place. So who is currently dominating the continent if not Masandawana?

After going on an unbeaten run in their CAF group stage and securing their spot in the semi-finals as group A leaders, Sundowns suffered a 3-1 loss to Enyimba in their final group stage fixture.

In addition, the Brazilians ended the first-leg of the MTN8 in a goalless draw against Chippa United on 11 September, and have not played an Absa Premiership fixture before last night, where they once again played out a goalless draw.

Subsequently, Masandawana have dropped points in the African rankings, and according to FootballDatabase, the Brazilians are currently ranked fifth with Etoile du Sahel from Tunisia holding the number one spot.
