🟒🟑 Baroka hand Sundowns shock defeat, Chiefs remain top!

Absa Premiership champions Mamelodi Sundowns lost 1-0 to a relegation-fighting Baroka FC on Sunday night.

With Kaizer Chiefs having taken a shock 1-0 defeat from Bidvest Wits earlier on Sunday, Sundowns had a golden chance to grab a three-point lead with two games to go, but Baroka had an upset to deliver.

The Limpopo side found their winning goal as early as 20 minutes via an Ananias Gebhardt header from a corner kick. It looked like the goal went in too early as Sundowns had too much firepower to comeback - but the team known as Bakgaga held on to dear life until the final whistle. 

The three points helped Baroka climb up three places off the bottom with two more games to the end.

Meanwhile Sundowns and Chiefs are both tied on 53 points each with two more games.

Sundowns remaining games:

  • Polokwane (a)
  • Black Leopards (h)

Chiefs remaining games:

  • Chippa (h)
  • Baroka (a).
