Bad News For Sundowns As They Drop To 3rd Position After Orlando Pirates Won Their Match

Mamelodi Sundowns dropped in the Dstv Premiership Log rankings, while Orlando Pirates won 3-1 over Chippa United for their largest win this season. Orlando Pirates have returned to winning ways as they have won their second straight Dstv prize in the run-up to Chippa United's defeat. With Orlando Pirates’ 1-0 win over Moroka Swallows, they are currently the biggest win in the 2021/22 season as they rebound to Chippa United 3-0.

Chippa UK was impressive because they frightened Orlando Pirates, taking the lead 1-0 against Pirates after Phakamani Mahlambi scored 1-0 in the early 12th minute, and that was the last glory for Gavin Hunt as Orlando Pirates fought back to score three goals against the hosts to make his classic return.

Orlando Pirates returned to a great combination between Tshegofatso Mabaso and Vincent Pule to score 1-1 when Mabaso scored in the 29th minute. In the second half of the contest, Orlando Pirates led Defender Abel Mabaso in the 59th minute, with the assistance of Bandile Shandu, for a lead of 2-1.

Orlando Pirates expanded their lead by 3-1 when Goodman Mosele scored his third goal in the seventy-eighth minute. Orlando Pirates defended their lead in full-time 3-1, taking their second consecutive win after two consecutive draws, which wasn't as remarkable as its two before encounters.

Orlando Pirates presently ranks at 8 points in the first place at the Dstv Premiership after 4 games played with Mamelodi Sundowns finishing second at 7 points. Orlando Pirates will stay first only if Mamelodi Sundowns lose their next place.

This is bad news for Sundowns, but they could topple again if they can win their match tomorrow. The team is looking fit and may win the title if they continue with their fine form.
