League Title: Sundowns Extend Lead, Pirates Trail, Komphela Believes

The race for the Absa Premiership title is heating up and as May 12 draws closer, Kaizer Chiefs’ Steve Komphela remains hopeful.

With four to five fixtures left to be played in the Absa Premiership, the title may or may not be decided on the last day of the league campaign.

Mamelodi Sundowns at the top, have comfortably placed a four point gap between themselves and Orlando Pirates in second place on the league standings, with the title arguably the Brazilians’ to lose at this point.  

Although, with Sundowns having five fixtures left to play, the Brazilians will want to make sure that they scoop maximum points, so as to avoid their rivals, Pirates, edging them to the title at the end of the season. 

Sundowns will have to drop more than four points and Pirates will have to win all their fixtures, should the Buccaneers want to be crowned champions.

However, for Chiefs, who are joined on 39 points with third-placed Maritzburg United, it could be difficult and unlikely at this point, but Amakhosi are still mathematically in the race to win the league title, this only should Pirates and Sundowns experience a really bad string of results. 

“It is not over yet, we are still in it, let’s go till there (are) two matches to go, one match or you mathematically out of it,” a confident Steve Komphela said about Chiefs’ title hopes.
