Sundowns change their focus on domestic league, chasing Orlando Pirates who are 50 points, while Masandawana have collected 44 points, with three matches in hand due to International duties in Caf Champions league.
“The Tshwane Derby is never boring and there’s always something to play for” this is according to Mamelodi Sundowns versatile and former Supersport United player Lyle Lakay.
The two Tshwane giants lock horns at the Loftus Stadium in a Wednesday night fixture that promises fireworks as always.
Supersport are currently lying 6th on the Absa Premiership log with 40 points, only four points behind Sundowns and ten points behind the log leaders. Lakay warns against writing ‘Matsatsantsa’ out of the title chase.
“If you listened to their technical team carefully leading up to this match, you can sence that they beleive they are still in the title race and that makes them a highly motivated bunch”
“If you ask me, they are currently doing very well in my opinion especially if you look at where they were halfway through the season and where they are right now. They have actually gone quietly about their business, almost unnoticed”
