AmaZulu & Sundowns Draw, So Do Leopards & Stellenbosch
There were no goals in Wednesday afternoon’s DStv Premiership games as AmaZulu and Mamelodi Sundowns drew 0-0, and so did Black Leopards and Stellenbosch.
AmaZulu 0-0 Mamelodi Sundowns
It was a goalless draw in the top of the table clash between AmaZulu and Sundowns at Kings Park Stadium on Wednesday afternoon.
It was an entertaining start to the game between the two top teams in the league currently, but neither goalkeeper had to make many saves in the opening half.
Peter Shalulile went close in the 26th minute, but his attempt from just inside the box, went wide of Veli Mothwa’s goal.
Thabo Qalinge had an opportunity for Usuthu in the 43rd minute, but his shot flew over the goal.
At halftime it remained goalless.
Augustine Mulenga should have put AmaZulu in the lead in the 53rd minute, but his powerful effort struck the upright. The game swung to the other end and Zwane had a chance, but it lacked power and Mothwa was able to save.
The home team were starting to find themselves with more ball in the second half, but it was Sundowns who should have opened the scoring in the 74th minute. Mothwa did well to deny Aubrey Modiba from close range, and Shalulile was just unable to score on the follow up.
Mulenga had a chance in the 86th minute, but his effort was off target.
A goalless draw and Sundowns remain six points ahead on the table.
Black Leopards 0-0 Stellenbosch
Leopards and Stellenbosch couldn’t be separated as they played to a goalless draw at Thohoyandou Stadium.
Roderick Kabwe had a chance for Leopards in the 33rd minute, but Sage Stephens was able to make the save to deny the Zambian.
Just before halftime Jose Mendes made a good save to deny Rafiq De Goede’s headed attempt after he got to the end of a set piece, and it remained scoreless at the end of the first 45.
Mendes made a good save in the 50th minute to deny Phatutshedzo Nange from a tight angle, and four minutes later he made another stop, this time denying Stanley Dimgba.
Leopards had a few chances near the end, but Stephens denied them with some good goalkeeping.
