Mamelodi Sundowns Clinches PSL Champions In South Africa

Mamelodi Sundowns who eventually walked away with the biggest prize in South Africa, securing the league title on the final day of the season. 

As a result, Sundowns have made history as they are the only South African team to win the PSL title in three successive seasons on two occasions. 

Between 1998 and 2000, Sundowns dominated local football. SuperSport United won consecutive titles between 2008 and 2010 with Gavin Hunt at the helm of the Tshwane outfit. 

Now this season, after chasing Kaizer Chiefs for 13 good months, the Brazilians pulled the unthinkable, dethroning the Soweto giants to successfully defend their league title. 

Sundowns went into their game against Black Leopards fully aware that the title race wasn't in their hands but were somehow hoping Baroka would do them a favour by at least denying Chiefs a win at Bidvest Stadium. 

That's how it panned out as Amakhosi stumbled against Baroka, playing to a 1-1 draw after letting their first-half lead slip in the 60th minute. 

Sundowns, on the other hand, scored three past Leopards - and that was enough for them to clinch the league title.
