Mamelodi Sundowns reaffirmed their status as South Africa’s football powerhouse, clinching their seventh consecutive Premiership title with a resounding 5-1 victory over Kaizer Chiefs in a pivotal match on Thursday evening.

Facing off against Kaizer Chiefs in the 27th round of the Premiership, Mamelodi Sundowns entered the encounter with unwavering determination following their semi-final exit in the Champions League against Esperance Sportive de Tunis.

The Brazilians, under the guidance of Rulani Mokwena, demonstrated their relentless pursuit of success on the domestic stage.

From the onset, Mamelodi Sundowns asserted their dominance, capitalizing on an early numerical advantage following the expulsion of Spiwe Msimango. The Brazilians seized control of proceedings, delivering a masterclass in attacking football.

The pivotal moments arrived in the second half, with Tashreeq Matthews breaking the deadlock in the 52nd minute, swiftly followed by Matias Esquivel’s clinical finish to extend the lead to 2-0.

Despite a consolation goal from Mduduzi Shabalala for Kaizer Chiefs in the 85th minute, Mamelodi Sundowns maintained their relentless onslaught, adding further goals through Lucas Ribeiro (90′) and Thembinkosi Lorch (90’+4).

The emphatic 5-1 victory sealed Mamelodi Sundowns’ seventh consecutive Premiership title, solidifying their dominance in South African football.

With this triumph, Mamelodi Sundowns now boasts an impressive tally of 14 titles since the inception of the Premiership in the 1996/1997 season, firmly establishing themselves as the most successful club in the league’s history.

Their closest rivals, Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates, lag behind with four titles each, underscoring Mamelodi Sundowns’ unrivaled supremacy in South African football.

Remarkably, Mamelodi Sundowns secured the title with six matches remaining in the season, highlighting their unparalleled consistency and excellence.
