Kaizer Chiefs fans thank Orlando Pirates for beating Mamelodi Sundowns


Amakhosi remain nine points clear at the top of the PSL table thanks to their greatest rivals

Orlando Pirates beat Mamelodi Sundowns 1-0 in PSL action on Wednesday night.

Bucs have done a favour to their fierce rivals and neighbours Kaizer Chiefs to have a significant advantage in the title race.

SuperSport United and Bidvest Wits may still have a say in the race, but the Brazilians are falling behind.

Editors’ Picks

We take a look at how Chiefs fans thanked Pirates on social media, as well as how Bucs fans discussed the performance of their team.

Then there were Sundowns supporters who were obviously disappointed but also proud of the level of their support on the night.

As I said last week, Pirates are the kingmakers in this title race.

Did anyone say Josef Zinnbauer’s had an inconsistent/poor start at Orlando Pirates? He’s been fantastic and still deserves time to learn the PSL. There were Bucs fans criticizing Zamalek for being harsh on Micho too soon, but also on JZ for dropping 2 pts https://t.co/faNF7FKoev

Í’m just talking about the results, considering how poor the results were under Rhulani Mokwena… this is something to be at least relieved or positive about… you won’t expect him to become Zidane after a few games… even Zidane gets stick for winning 3 UCL’s in a row so…

Make that four wins under Zinnbauer & second win in 2020…still impressive 👌👌

I don’t know which Sundowns you have been watching. Sundowns create a ton if opportunities to score. The creativity is there a plenty. Against USMA we created and created, it’s the finish that’s missing.

Indeed. Nothing wrong with adopting what you like as Sundowns. Even the name Orlando originate from American and it was adopted by South Africans because they liked it. By the way there are many other things Sundowns supporters do and songs sang which originate from Sundowns.

The Sea Robbers saved us twice from possible goals. Finally we managed to beat Sundowns after 7 consecutive years of defeats in our home ground.

You were going to lead Sundowns by only 6 points. Surely you know 6 points is nothing 🙃. Yes wits is a bigger threat NOW after winning today and Sundowns losing. Otherwise you were gonna be worried about 2 teams. Well the chase is still on, you’re not getting anything 🙃

Sirino covered more distance than any other Sundowns player (10.28 km) , he won balls twice or thrice. The Ncgonqa header that hit the post was from Sirino. Unfortunately HE HIMSELF also hit the post, which could have been a goal. He had the most goal attempts (2).

I’m a @orlandopirates fan but, this this is offensive football it should be not allowed on the field, we want more goals and creating more chances to make more goals, premier league should take that serious.

— IAM_ANDILE01 (@iam_andile01) January 15, 2020

Dear @OfficialPSL please next time when you do the fixture please stop doing @orlandopirates , @Masandawana games during the week please, think it through….
