Mayinga Said, a former Mamelodi Sundowns defender, believes it is still too early to talk about a two-horse race.
The familiar appearance of the table could indicate that Amakhosi and defending champions Sundowns would be locked in a two-horse title chase for the duration of the season.
In an interview with Kickoff.com, Mayinga said, "I think it's still too early to be making predictions."
"The only thing that can be said about the weekend is that both teams took advantage of their opportunities.
"Sundowns have already gathered 30 points after 12 games, which is an impressive feat. As a result, it is critical that they take advantage of their opportunities today because we never know when a rainy day will arrive.
"This season's league will be full of surprises because everyone is motivated for victory and there are no easy wins.
"You have a chance to win, but you will have to work hard for each victory. You saw them in good form at Stellenbosch, but take a look at their last two results to see how they've changed.
"So anything is still possible, and I still believe that if you take a month off from football, it is more like you are beginning from scratch.
"When it comes to Sundowns, they are still in the CAF Champions League and will have to play those games, but it is beneficial for them to be collecting points now rather than in the past.
"The past few seasons, they have been able to secure the championship in the final phases of the season, but this season could be different. However, the Chiefs have a chance to narrow the gap."
