Blow by blow: Bidvest Wits vs Mamelodi Sundowns

Bidvest Wits will feel they must beat Mamelodi Sundowns at their home ground on Saturday or risk coming off second best in the Absa Premiership title race.

While Wits are still in the lead on the table, Sundowns have now cut down to their advantage to just two points, even as they still have two games to hand.

That means if Wits lose this weekend’s match they will relinquish their lead to the Brazilians, who will still have a game in hand at the top of the table.

The Students are coming off a 2-1 loss to Highlands Park earlier this month. It was just their fifth defeat of the season but it only served to increase the pressure on them at the top of the table.
