As the Absa Premiership title race heats up, Mamelodi Sundowns and Orlando Pirates will do battle to make sure that they collect maximum points in their upcoming encounters.
First placed Masandawana currently have a one-point advantage over Pirates who are second on the log, although the Brazilians have a game in hand, Pitso Mosimane is well aware that it would not mean anything without collecting maximum points.
“We have a game in hand, a game in hand doesn’t mean anything,” Mosimane told the media.
Both Sundowns and the Buccaneers will be in action this evening, as they battle it out for the number one spot on the league standings.
Sundowns will come up against Chippa United, a side who have seen the Brazilians collect no more than one point in their past three league meetings.
“We’ve got to win the game and Chippa always gives us problems, we always draw with that team. But sometimes history can change,” Mosimane added.
On the other hand, Pirates will be locking horns with Bloemfontein Celtic, as they look to collect nothing less than a win in order to keep their title hopes alive.
However, while these two Gauteng giants are in action, Kaizer Chiefs will face off with Free State Stars, with the two sides currently separated by just one point on the league standings and both teams still in the running for glory at the end of the season.
The top five positions on the league standings could change by the end of this evening and it remains to be seen who will be holding the number one spot on the Absa Premiership log.
