Following Wednesday’s DStv Premiership matches, there are now only THREE rounds remaining in the 2021/22 season.
Mamelodi Sundowns have wrapped up the title for the fifth consecutive season and are a full 16 points ahead of their nearest challengers as they target a record victory margin.
Behind Masandawana there is a mad scramble for the remaining CAF Champions League spot (for the second placed finisher) and the lone CAF Confederation Cup berth (for the third placed finisher).
Currently Shauwn ‘MaMkhize’ Mkhize’s Royal AM have the edge on goal difference over Cape Town City FC, but the KwaZulu-Natal side have hit a wall of late and have not tasted success in their last three outings.
Kaizer Chiefs still have a chance of sneaking in at the last minute, but do trail by three points and still have to face Mamelodi Sundowns (on Sunday, 8 May).
The race for the top 8 spots which will secure those teams a place in next season’s MTN8 tournament is still wide open.
At the bottom of the standings, Baroka FC gave their hopes a boost with a 1-0 victory over Golden Arrows on Wednesday, but still remain favourites for automatic relegation.
