Reading Time: < 1 minutes

Mamelodi Sundowns will be looking to successfully defend their Absa Premiership title, when they play against Free State Stars at Goble Park stadium in Bethlehem on Saturday.

Sundowns need to beat Stars to guarantee winning the title.

Orlando Pirates and Bidvest Wits are breathing heavily down their necks. Sundowns Coach Pitso Mosimane says the match is a must win.

Sundowns have played more than 45 games this season in the PSL, champs league, MTN 8, Telkom Cup and Nedbank Cup. Mosimane says it has been a tough season for them.

Pirates will need to beat Polokwane City and hope that Sundowns lose to Stars to entertain any hopes of winning the league.

Teams will also be looking to finish second on the log to book their spot in the CAF Champions League next season.


Mosimane says the Buccaneers will do well in the Champions League next season.

Sundowns recently bowed out of the Champions League when they lost to Wydad Casablanca in the semi-finals last weekend.

The Brazilians won the Champs League in 2016. Mosimane paid tribute to their die hard supporters. – Report by Vincent Sitsula
