A Look Back At A Successful Month For Masandawana

November was a month of groundbreaking success for Mamelodi Sundowns, with historic success on the African continent and the trailblazing records being set in the domestic league by both the men’s and ladies teams.

The highlight of the month was undoubtedly the success of the Mamelodi Sundowns Ladies Team who made footballing history to become the first-ever Women’s Champions League winners. With five clean sheets in five matches and without tasting defeat, Sundowns Ladies stepped into their first-ever inaugural CAF Women’s Champions League final following their successful 5-4 penalty shootout victory in the semi-finals. Banyana Ba Style made history in the process with a spectacular 2-0 win over Ghana’s Hasaacas Ladies in the historic final.

The Champions of Africa returned home and immediately continued their dominance in the domestic league, securing a successive league title by clinching the Hollywoodbets Super League title after an impressive 2-1 triumph over JVW Girls. With three games to spare and sixty seven points in the bag, The Brazilians wrapped up a historic treble by adding the Hollywoodbets Super League trophy to their CAF Women Champions League and COSAFA regional title crowns.

Following the perfect end to October which saw Mamelodi Sundowns lift the MTN8 trophy after a 14-year wait – The Brazilians won three of their five games played this month, setting a new record in the Premier Soccer League of having 10 successive clean sheets in the league. Downs recorded league wins over Maritzburg United, Marumo Gallants and Sekhukhune United, whilst keeping their unbeaten start going with draws against SuperSport United and Cape Town City.

After not conceding in the league for over a thousand minutes, Downs conceded for the first time in their 2021/22 campaign when they met SuperSport United in the Tshwane Derby at Loftus late in the month. A total of nine goals was scored collectively with only two goals being conceded, Bafana Ba Style remain capable of putting together a string of successive wins and sit top of the log table with 30 points – 8 points clear of second positioned Kaizer Chiefs and a game in hand to play.

While breaking records and setting new trends, The Brazilians have been phenomenal to watch and their performances are matched by the prestigious “Man of the match” award that has been collected with each game played – the only time they missed out on the award was in the equalizer against Matsatsantsa. Downs biggest win this month was their memorable 4-0 triumph against Marumo Gallants in Polokwane and their unbeaten run continues.
