What That Downs Result Means For The Title Race…
Mamelodi Sundowns knew that any result better than a 1-0 victory last night would have taken them to the top of the Absa Premiership, however today they remain in second place.
Check out some league stats for the title race in the gallery above!
The Brazilians had the upper hand against Polokwane City on Tuesday evening after Themba Zwane had given them the lead inside the opening 10 minutes, however a mistake from Denis Onyango let the visitors back into the game and it went on to end 1-1.
Gavin Hunt and his Bidvest Wits side will be breathing a sigh of relief as they know that they will maintain their place at the top of the table for the time being, though Masandawana do still have two games in hand on the Clever Boys as we approach the business end of the season.
With most teams having either 30 or 33 points up for grabs before the season ends, there are just four clubs that have already passed the 30-point mark, and things are still wide open going into the final third of the 2018/19 campaign.
In fact, as things stand, there are still technically enough points available for any team to get relegated and any team to lift the title, though only three sides – Wits, Bloemfontein Celtic and Orlando Pirates – have spent any time on top of the table up until now.
As we draw closer to March, who do you think will win the Absa Premiership this season?
