Farmers League!!! Are Sundowns running away with the title?

Mamelodi Sundowns are favourites to win their seventh DStv Premiership title in a row following their good start to the 2023/24 campaign.

The Brazilians have won their first three games this season so far despite not playing very well, especially in their first two league games.

On Tuesday night, Rulani Mokwena’s charges thrashed Golden Arrows 4-0. Lesiba Nku scored a brace while Peter Shalulile and Grant Kekana scored the other goals to maintain Downs’ 100 percent win record.

Despite winning all their games, Sundowns have had a problem in converting their chances before the Arrows game.

Sundowns running away with the league title

After Tuesday’s match, Downs coach Rulani Mokwena confirmed that striker Thabiso Kutumela was on loan to Cape Town City but says the club might bring in one or two attacking players as his squad is rattled with a few injuries early in the season.

“On the strikers, if we can get Thapelo [Morena] back quickly, we can get [Abubeker] Nasir back also very quickly, I think we are in a decent situation,” said the Sundowns coach.

“Of course we have to go and see whether we will go into the market. That’s the space for the sporting director and the club.

Sundowns are already eight points clear of Kaizer Chiefs and five points ahead of Orlando Pirates early in the season. The only team that is matching them so far is Cape Town City but the Cape side lacks the quality and depth to keep up with the Brazilians for the entire season.
