Only Sundowns & Pirates Are Mathematically Safe From Relegation

Orlando Pirates & Mamelodi Sundowns Are Now Safe From Relegation

By Soccer Laduma - Apr 12, 2018 10:39 AM
There may be only four games left for most teams in the Absa Premiership, but at this stage, only Mamelodi Sundowns and Orlando Pirates are officially safe in terms of their points tally.
 
 
Just 12 points separate third-placed Maritzburg United from Ajax Cape Town in 15th, meaning that even Kaizer Chiefs, who are fourth, are not even mathematically 100% safe with regards to their points on the board.
 
This season has been one of the tightest in recent memory at both ends of the table, something that could be largely to do with the fact that there have already been 75 draws – with 32 matches to play – as the number of shared points increases.
 
The number of draws in the league has been steadily on the rise in recent years. In 2014/15 there were 59, then 68 in 2014/15, followed by 69 in 2015/16 and 82 last season. Only eight more draws out of 32 games are needed for this campaign to follow that trend. 
 
 
At the top of the table, following Pirates’ draw with SuperSport United, Sundowns need to pick up nine points from the remaining fifteen in order to officially secure the league title, meaning they could wrap it up against Maritzburg United later this month.
 
Meanwhile, at the bottom, it’s looking bad for Platinum Stars as they fell six points behind Ajax last night, although the race to avoid the relegation play-offs is going to be bitterly fought as only five points separate the Urban Warriors from Bidvest Wits in 10th.
 
Who do you think will be relegated from the Absa Premiership?

even Kaizer Chiefs, who are fourth, are not even mathematically 100% safe with regards to their points on the board. This means chiefs are also fighting relegation

Lets face reality and leave mathematics. Supersport need a couple of good results to avoid playing in the promotional play offs. I am scared for Ajax as nobody knows what will happen with the Ndoro saga and still on that can someone please tell Pirates fans that there will be no mahala points for the Ndoro saga coming their way.

This Nkomoditor forgot that all other 14 teams has to play each other in the next 4 - 5 league game so your mathematics is ruuuubish. I blame your ratish brains for this. If one team is gonna play the other one between #3 and #16 it means you do not count it as possible 6 pionts from 2 games but a flat 3pointer. I will school you for free everyday my Nkomoditor
