Masandawana had to respond after being held to a draw by Al Ahly over the weekend
The Tshwane giants, who were coming off a 1-1 draw with Egyptian giants Al Ahly, secured a hard-fought 1-0 win over Stellenbosch FC in the Mother City.
The victory stretched their winning run to four matches in the PSL as they closed the gap on league log leaders Kaizer Chiefs, who are now just four points above second-placed Masandawna having played a game more.
The defending champions’ win has put more pressure on Chiefs, who have been inconsistent in recent times having lost their most recent match against AmaZulu.
We have a look at the banter on social media and see how supporters feel about the win which has seen Sundowns pull away from third-placed Orlando Pirates.
This is how the fans reacted to Masandawana’s narrow victory:
And the pain fly straight to Naturena.That’s double pain in one day.This Mamelodi Sundowns FC win and George Maluleka’s pre-contract at Chloorkop… https://t.co/xalYVzwjZW
