Mamelodi Sundowns extended their impressive unbeaten run in the Absa Premiership to 18 games last night, with Pitso Mosimane’s side having avoided defeat since way back in January.
Lebohang Maboe was the hero last night as Masandawana got back to winning ways after a draw with AmaZulu last week, with the former Maritzburg United man smashing home to send the Brazilians up to fifth place on the league table.
The victory also meant that Sundowns’ long run without a loss continued, making it exactly 250 days since they were last beaten in a league encounter – back in January as they lost 3-1 to Orlando Pirates.
During the course of their 18-game unbeaten run, Sundowns have also managed to keep 10 clean sheets, scoring 28 goals, winning 55% of their matches along the way.
In fact, looking a little further back, Downs have actually only lost 17 out of their last 108 league matches since the start of 2015, showing the fine work that Pitso Mosimane has been doing since his arrival.
Impressive as their run is though, Mosimane’s side still have a long way to go if they’re to break any records, with Chiefs currently holding the record for longest unbeaten run in the Absa Premiership – both in a single season (19 games) and over two seasons (31) – though they will be looking to get one step closer in their next game when they face an in-form Bloemfontein Celtic.
