The Brazilians and the Students were both involved in midweek action as the Premier Soccer League title race took another interesting twist
Social media’s reaction to the Premier Soccer League’s midweek action was once again masterclass and overwhelming as title hopefuls Mamelodi Sundowns and Bidvest Wits were both in action on Wednesday.
While Hlompho Kekana’s stunning free-kick ensured Downs’ walked away 2-1 winners in a closely contested affair, Peter Shalulile’s late penalty saw Wits and the Lions of the North play to a 2-2 draw.
With the win, Pitso Mosimane’s men returned to second spot and moved to within four points of leaders Kaizer Chiefs, while Wits’ slip-up compounded their recent struggles.
Following the completion of these matches last night, fans from all the title-chasing clubs took to Twitter by storm with reactions.
Give this movie a proper name please.

🗣️Pitso on the yellow cards saga:
“We had to do what we had to do. Everybody does it. It doesn’t look nice, but we have to do what we have to do. Sorry for the ugly play, but we fighting for the league- it’s survival of the fittest.”
