After another remarkable run of league form, Mamelodi Sundowns will have the chance to set a new Premier Soccer League record as they aim for an unprecedented 12th DStv Premiership victory in a row when they tackle Kaizer Chiefs on Saturday.
Earlier this week, Sundowns claimed a 1-0 victory over SuperSport United to equal their own best winning run of 11 victories in succession, which had been set in the 2006/07 season under coach Gordon Igesund.

As is stands, Sundowns have played one extra game compared to the rest of the teams in the top eight of the DStv Premiership, but it can’t detract from what already seems like an unassailable lead at the summit of the standings.
Masandawana are now 14 points clear of second-placed Richards Bay, and 16 clear of SuperSport, the team that they importantly beat 1-0 on Monday night.
Pirates lie in fifth place on the DStv Premiership table, just two points behind fourth-placed Chiefs. Yet, the fact of the matter is that there are 19 log points that separate table-topping Sundowns (43 points) and Chiefs (24 points).
Again, it’s become clear that there is an insurmountable gulf between Sundowns and the chasing pack, and the second half of the season will now mainly revolve around achieving personal club goals.
