Sundowns will break their own proud record set back in 2007 if they put Kaizer Chiefs to the sword on Saturday. It seems to be a case of when, rather than if, when contemplating Sundowns and their PSL title chances.
FOOD FOR THOUGHT: Kaizer Chiefs are the Man United of South Africa
Sundowns to break a massive record at the expense of Kaizer Chiefs
Ka Bo Yellow’s win over SuperSport puts them 14 points ahead of Richards Bay, 16 ahead of Matsatsantsa, 19 ahead of Kaizer Chiefs and 21 ahead of Pirates. Add second-placed Richards Bay’s points tally (29) to that of rock-bottom Gallants (14) and you get 43. That’s the amount of points amassed by Sundowns after 17 games. Phew.
WOW: Go home, because Sundowns are strolling to the PSL title in record time
Brazilians aim to break streak set by Igesund’s class of 2007
Rulani Mokwena is the first coach in PSL history to win their first seven league games in charge of a top-flight club. He’s also presiding over a team on the brink of history; Sundowns have won 11 league games in a row, matching the best ever winning streak in PSL top-flight football set between January and April 2007 by Gordon Igesund’s Sundowns team.
If Sundowns beat Chiefs at FNB stadium on Saturday, they’ll break their own record win streak and enter new ground.
