Sundowns enjoy a seven-point lead at the top of the DStv Premiership log as they are on 34 points from the 14 league games played so far.
At this stage, the Brazilians are strong favourites to retain their DStv Premiership crown, and while Chiefs are 10 points off the pace, Zwane is confident of catching them.

However, the first step towards achieving that is to compete with SuperSport United and Richards Bay FC who are second and third respectively, according to Zwane.
Zwane’s charges ended 2022 on a high, beating Golden Arrows 2-0 on 31 December, what’s important for them is to keep grinding results without really worrying about Sundowns, he said.

“There are still 16 matches to be played. We just have to keep on grinding the results in the upcoming games and keep up with the teams that are on top of us on the log,” Zwane told the media in Naturena.
“SuperSport United have done well lately and Richards Bay are also in the top three. We need to compete with them. If we win most of our games, we will be up there competing for the league title as well – the race is not over yet,” he added.
