Epic Weekend in The DStv Premiership Goals Galore (19 Goals Scored in 6 League Games)

This was just one of those epic weekends in the DStv Premiership as there were goals galore, we have already witnessed a super Saturday whereby a total of 13 league goals were scored in the league, this is something that the South African football universe has to be happy about. It's worth it when watching football teams taking each other on, and it just gets too bad when there are those who end up losing at the end of the day, especially for a team like Kaizer Chiefs as they were handed a 4-1 defeat by Royal AM.

If you think that action and sensational football was only played on Saturday you have definitely missed out, because Sunday was just another day to witness the DStv Premiership teams continue where they left off on Saturday. In case you missed the Sunday's action we will cover it for you as we begin with a team that crashed out Orlando Pirates in the MTN 8 cup Swallows FC. The Dube birds played as hosts to SuperSport United after they were previously defeated 1-0 by Orlando Pirates at Orlando Stadium.

On the other hand SuperSport United recently played to a 0-0 draw against last season's runner ups AmaZulu FC, both sides were prepared to get maximum points in this match and unfortunately for the home team Swallows FC, they were the ones who were in the losing end in this encounter as SuperSport United walked passed easy on them as they were handed a 3-0 defeat, this is a bad position that Swallows finds themselves in as this is their second successive league loss.

More league action was in Tshwane as Mamelodi Sundowns hosted a determined TS Galaxy, there was just one element that most people wanted to see in this match, and it was in relation to Peter Shalulile and his former mentor, this was one of those moments whereby there was a mystery whether the student will be able to best his master. An ordinary expectation is that if there was just one coach who could possibly have that capability to stop Peter Shalulile it was Owen Da Gama.

But things did not turn as they were expected to be in this match Owen Da Gama's tactics were not effective enough to stop the might of Mamelodi Sundowns and the forever scoring Shalulile also found himself in the scoring sheet and he bested his former mentor. The DStv Premiership Champions earned themselves a 3-0 victory against the Mpumalanga side and they remain optimistic to successfully defend their league title. This was an epic weekend in the DStv Premiership as we have witnessed 19 goals scored in six league games.
