Sundowns crowned champions after goalless draw Cape Town 

Mamelodi Sundowns have been crowned South African Premiership League champions for the fifth time in a row after a goalless draw by Cape Town City at the Loftus Stadium on Wednesday.

Securing a point lifted 12-time champions Sundowns to 58 points with four matches remaining as second-placed Royal AM can reach only 57. 

Cape Town stretched an unbeaten league run to nine matches and remains third, boosting its chances of qualifying for one of the two African club competitions next season. 

Sundowns and the runners-up go into the Champions League and the club finishing third qualifies for the Confederation Cup along with the FA Cup winners.

A point is all they needed to defend their title. Co-coach Rulani Mokwena congratulated the players for their efforts. 

“A special word of congratulations to the players. You run out of superlative words to describe them. I mean what they show today is exactly a reflection of who they are, honest, hard-working, extremely diligent, a pleasure to coach.”

The league title will send the team back to the CAF Champions League after being eliminated from the quarter-finals of the tournament. Mokwena says this is no time to relax.
