Few could have predicted the shock result last week, when Bloemfontein Celtic downed Mamelodi Sundowns by three goals to one. It is now even harder to predict how this season will end. Will Sundowns finish strong, or will Bidvest Wits snatch it at the death? It seems the Yellow Nation is not forecasting the sun going down on their title.
Instead they have likened their team to a snake backed into a corner, ready to strike.
"It's a good thing that we have been rattled by Celtic. Good for soccer as Wits have a chance to push us to the end." – mrelectronics
"That loss against Celtic was a wake-up call for Sundowns. This is going to make them more dangerous to their opponents." – sir toz-lucky.
The defeat could indeed spell trouble for Sundowns' next opponents. A proud and resilient team like the one based in Chloorkop will not take the matter of losing lightly, and the backlash from that loss may be a spectacle to watch. Let's keep our eyes peeled.
What do you think the loss to Celtic has done for Sundowns' confidence? Will it hurt or help them?
