After their 2-0 triumph over Baroka on Wednesday, the shielding champions moved one game past their own record of 19 to move to 20 matches unbeaten – their longest unbeaten run. 


The Brazilians' just destruction this season was in the MTN8 season opener against Bloemfontein Celtic. 


From that point forward they have won 14 (counting the extra-time triumph over Stellenbosch in the Nedbank Cup) and attracted six this run remembering games for the DStv Premiership, CAF Champions League and Telkom Knockout. 


Twilights have now obscured a record they accomplished twice before in their set of experiences. 


From January 13, 2007 when they pounded AmaZulu 4-0 it denoted the start of what might be 19 games unbeaten on the whole rivalries during which they won 17 and drew two. They were at last halted by Al Ahly towards the finish of April. 


Gordon Igesund was in control at that point and Sundowns were group champions toward the finish of that crusade in which Surprise Moriri, Godfrey Sapula and Jose Torrealba drove with the objectives with Esrom Nyandoro and Benson Mhlongo giving equilibrium behind them. 


At that point from September 23, 2015 under Pitso Mosimane when they won 3-2 against Ajax Cape Town, they again went 19 games without losing taking all things together rivalries before they unhinged against Chicken Inn in a Champions League tie on February 13 the next year in Bulawayo. 


It was without question that this radiant run of winning 17 and drawing two likewise reinforced their fruitful group title offer that season.
