What Mamelodi Sundowns need to do to win the DStv Premiership title: We’ve worked it out!

Their closest challengers are Royal AM with 40 points after a similar number of matches, while third-placed Kaizer Chiefs have 39 points after 22 matches.

That means Amakhosi in actual fact could end up with more log points than Royal AM.

Should Kaizer Chiefs win all of their remaining eight matches, they’d pick up 24 points and finish on 63 for the season. That’s the most any team other than Mamelodi Sundowns can achieve.

That would mean the Brazilians would need 12 more points to tie, and 13 to take an unassailable lead.

Of course, there’s NO chance Kaizer Chiefs will pick up a maximum of 24 log points from their remaining matches!

Considering they couldn’t even beat lowly TS Galaxy at home on Tuesday, there is nothing to suggest they’d beat far better sides on the road.

However, should that miracle indeed take place, Mamelodi Sundowns would need 13 points to make mathematically certain of the title.

With seven matches remaining, they’d require four wins and a draw – or something similar.

Interestingly, Mamelodi Sundowns will play Kaizer Chiefs and Royal AM (both away) in their final three matches of the season.
