  • There is no denying Mamelodi Sundowns is strolling towards a sixth consecutive DStv Premiership title
  • Only a monumental collapse and a remarkable run of form from their chasers could stop them now
  • Sports Brief looks at how soon the Brazilians can place champagne on ice ahead of their crowning moment

Only a brave and delusional person can bet against Mamelodi Sundowns from winning the league, judging by the position they are currently in.

Chasing a record-extending sixth DStv Premiership title in a row, the defending champions are in first place on 59 points after 23 matches, a staggering 20 points ahead of SuperSport United (39 points) in second place.

The Brazilians have played one more match than their Tshwane rivals, but it all seems academic at this point that the trophy will remain at Chloorkop.

Can SuperSport United catch up?

Matsatsantsa lies in second place with 39 points after 22 matches. If they improbably win their next eight games, they would finish on 63 points.

Sundowns can acquire four points in their remaining seven games to reach 64, which would be enough to douse United's faded hopes completely.

SuperSport will take on Orlando Pirates tomorrow at the Orlando Stadium in Soweto.

Anything less than a win means Sundowns can lock the title up on April Fool's Day when the defending champions take on Cape Town City, while United meets Chippa United.

Ahly legend feels Mosimane embarrassment

Al Ahly is licking its wounds after one of the club's worst defeats in its history, Sports Brief has reported.

They were subjected to a 5-2 thumping by Mamelodi Sundowns in the CAF Champions League.

Former coach, Pitso Mosimane once again loomed like a spectre over proceedings for the Egyptians.

Sundowns employee in hot water

Khaled Ali has got some explaining to do after a recent social media post got him into some hot water, Sports Brief also reported.

The Mamelodi Sundowns travel logistics and liaison allegedly offered Al Ahly fans data about the team the Egyptians face next.

Sundowns recently thumped their Egyptian rivals 5-2 at the Loftus Versfeld Stadium and perhaps the confidence is a bit too high.
