Mamelodi Sundowns have once again proved why they are the best club in the DStv Premiership. Sundowns completed a double on Kaizer Chiefs after a 1-0 win at FNB Stadium on Saturday night.

Masandawana made their intentions clear after they took the ball in their own half through Khuliso Mudau who ran past Sifiso Hlanti. He found Peter Shalulile who connected with Neo Maema in the box and in turn found the back of the net in the 20th minute.

This was Amakhosi’s third straight loss since the new year. They currently sit 5th on the log standings with 24 points after 17 matches played.


Meanwhile Masandawana continues to break records after they got their 12th win in a row. This is their longest ever winning streak in a single campaign.

They also currently lead the log standings with 46 points after 18 matches. Sundowns are 16 points clear of second placed Richards Bay.

“Congratulations to the Mamelodi Sundowns football Club, congratulations to the Players,” said coach Rhulani Mokwena after the match.

“It was not easy but from a tactical perspective,  maybe not one of the games that I enjoyed so much.

“I have to speak to the players first about the performance but generally the game was too open, not enough control and the reason for that I have to speak to the Players first,” he said.


This was the first time Sundowns completed a league double over their Soweto rivals since the Inception of the PSL in 1996.

Mokwena has also not lost a match nor dropped a single point since his appointment as the solo head coach.

In the 10 matches that he has been in charge, the Brazilians have scored a whopping 25 goals.

The Brazilians next assignment will be next Tuesday when they visit TS Galaxy in Mbombela. Galaxy are one of the two clubs to have tasted victory against Sundowns this season. The other one being SuperSport United.
