What’s the story?

The Chloorkop side faced SuperSport United in their most recent league match, with three points enough for them to claim league glory.

Downs were up for it in the Tshwane Derby and managed to come away with a 3-1 victory at Loftus Versfeld. In a late second half flurry, Lebohang Maboe, Aubrey Modiba and Themba Zwane scored in 12 minutes of each other to enter the half-time break with a comfortable 3-0 lead.


Back-To-Back, To Back

SSU were dealt with an early blow in the form of a red card to Guily Cyprien Manziba in minute seven, while Teboho Mokoena’s goal in the 88th minute finishing the scoreline.

Downs have now won four league titles on the trot as they continue to asset themselves as the team to beat in local football.


Stars & A New Champions

The likes of Themba Zwane, Peter Shalulile and Rivaldo Coetzee have been standout performers for Sundowns this season, while coach Steve Komphela can add the 20/21 league win down on his CV as his first bit of silverware as a mentor.

That said, fans flocked to social media in their numbers, as they wished Downs well and congratulated the players who made it happen.
