It’s been billed as the Absa Premier League title decider with second-placed Mamelodi Sundowns facing table leaders Kaizer Chiefs on Thursday.

The top of the table clash has created so much hype with many stating whoever wins will be favourites to win the league something Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane has dismissed, insisting even after the game, no matter the result the league fight will still be on.

“Thursday is not a title decider, the way I know this thing, sometimes the title is decided on the last day.”

“The title will not be won on Thursday but we would love to win on Thursday,” Mosimane said ahead of the game.

The glamour boys who are chasing their first league title since the 2014/15 season have huffed and puffed in their last three games picking up four points from a possible nine which similarly has been the case with Sundowns.

The Brazilians will be boosted with the return of first-choice goalkeeper and Uganda Cranes captain Denis Onyango who missed the 1-0 win over Golden Arrows on Monday night nursing a quadricep muscle strain injury.

The 2016 CAF Champions League winners have lacked momentum picking up one win from the last three games managing five points from a possible nine.

Masandawana are gunning for a 10th league title in the club’s history and also a treble having won the league back to back in 2018 and 2019.
