Down to the wire for South African league title

The South African Premier Soccer League (PSL) will go down to the wire Saturday 5th september when defending champions Mamelodi Sundowns, and leaders Kaizer Chiefs will make one last push towards the title. 

With just one game left this season, Chiefs are favourites to clinch it, sitting top on 56 points after 29 matches. Sundowns are on the same number of points, but Amakhosi enjoy a superior goal difference.

Chiefs striker, Samir Nurkovic has urged his side to pick up from the momentum of their victory over Chippa United in the penultimate clash of the season last Wednesday.

“We have the confidence and that is what we must take to this match. It will not be easy. It has not been since we returned. Baroka are fighting for their lives and this will make them a difficult side,” Nurkovic said.

“But Chiefs is a big club and it is not right that we have not won anything in five years. We need to put on a big performance. Our team has been on top of the log since the season started. We must finish what we stated said the forward .

Meanwhile, Sundowns too, believe in their chances to win the league. Their confidence comes from the fact that they have reduced Chiefs’ gap from 13 points to being equal on the final day.

Having already secured a CAF Champions League spot, the Telkom Knockout trophy, as well as an appearance in the FA Cup final, coach Pitso Mosimane wants his team to fight for the league.

“I have been saying that this thing still has a heartbeat and we will fight for it. It is alive. If we can come back from 13 points down, we can fight until the end,” Mosimane said.

“We have never been in control. We had one chance against Baroka for two hours and we missed it. But Chiefs always had it in their hands. But we are not going to let go that easy. We will fight for it,” the Sundowns added.

The last time Chiefs and Sundowns finished neck and neck was back in the 2013/14 season, when Sundowns pipped Chiefs to the title by just two points. In that season, Sundowns trailed for most of the season, having been 12 points behind Amakhosi. But Mosimane engineered a stunning come-back, and managed to guide the Brazilians to a famous title.

As the Brazilians will be looking to win a third straight title, and make it 10 league titles in history, Chiefs will be out to be champions for the first time since 2015, where they were guided to the title by former Bafana Bafana coach Stuart Baxter.

Hey there just wanted to give you a quick
heads up. The words in your article seem to be running off the screen in Internet

or something to do with web browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you
know. The layout look great though! Hope you get the problem solved soon. Kudos

Hello! I understand this is kind of off-topic however I needed to ask.

Does running a well-established website such as yours take a
massive amount work? I’m brand new to operating a blog however I do write in my diary everyday.

Please let me know if you have any ideas or tips for new aspiring blog owners.

Thankyou!
