Mamelodi Sundowns have been the dominant force on the local football scene for several years now – and the secret to their success is actually no secret at all!
While their opponents have fired blanks in front of goal in recent seasons, Masandawana have spread their goals among a number of different players.
While others slump when inevitable injuries hit, the Brazilians seemingly have a conveyer belt of players to choose from when first-choice players miss matches.
As the 2021/22 season draws to a close, a look at the stats shows that Mamelodi Sundowns have had no fewer than 23 different players score goals in all competitions this season.
Record for Mamelodi Sundowns
That’s the most they have had in their history, two more than the previous record they set – last season!
The most recent player to add their name to the list of Masandawana goal scorers was Aubrey Modiba who found the back of the net in the 62nd minute in Saturday’s 2-1 Nedbank Cup semi-final win over Royal AM.
