Cape Town go top after beating Onyango’s Sundowns again
Johannesburg, South Africa | AFP |
Cape Town City went top of the South African Premiership Friday after completing a double over title-holders Mamelodi Sundowns by winning 1-0 at home. Denis Onyango’s Sundowns face KCC later this month in the Champions League.
Lebogang Manyama became the co-leading league scorer on 11 goals after hooking the ball over goalkeeper Wayne Sandilands midway through the second half.
Cape Town wasted several other great scoring chances while Sundowns had two goals disallowed because of offside and handball.
It was the third league loss of the season for African champions Sundowns and all have been inflicted by Cape Town clubs with Ajax winning 2-0 at home.
Playing for the second time in three days, Sundowns could not match fresher and quicker rivals who joined the Premiership this season after buying a franchise.
Cape Town have 38 points, Wits 37, SuperSport United 35, Kaizer Chiefs 34 and Sundowns 33 in the most exciting title race for many seasons.
Malawian Frank “Gabadinho” Mhango scored on 73 minutes to clinch a 3-1 home win for Wits over lowly Bloemfontein Celtic in Johannesburg.
Platinum Stars continued to climb away from the relegation zone by coming from behind to edge Chippa United 2-1 in northwestern mining town Rustenburg.
