With the CAF Women’s Champions League just around the corner, Mamelodi Sundowns Ladies will be hoping to shatter several goal-scoring records in the Hollywoodbets Super League before they switch their attention to Morocco, the venue for this year’s edition of the continent’s premier women’s tournament.
Incredibly, The Brazilians are just 5 goals away from smashing the 100-goal mark in what has been a scintillating season of exciting attacking football. Banyana Ba Style has been in beast mode all season with 95 goals scored in 25 games, averaging an astonishing 3.8 goals per game!
To put those staggering numbers into context, Sundowns Ladies scored 87 goals in 26 games last season and scored 83 times in 22 games back in 2020. With 5 games left to play in this current campaign, it is fair to say that Coach Jerry’s troops will be aiming to send out a solid and ominous message to their continental rivals ahead of the CAF Women’s Champions League.
Midfielder Oratile Mokwena believes the team is keen to arrive in Morocco in the best possible way.
“The games are coming thick and fast for us and we are relishing them as they come. These fixtures are keeping us in shape because we will be facing some of the best teams across the continent in Morocco. I must commend our consistency and determination right from the start of the season. Everyone on the team is hungry to win and we are focused on getting maximum points in every game we play. We will be very excited to win the Hollywoodbets Super League before we get to Morocco, thus, we are mentally prepared for anyone standing in our way,” Oratile declared.
Since the 1-0 defeat in the Tshwane Derby, the continental champions have been unstoppable thanks to six straight wins on the bounce. Incredibly, Sundowns Ladies have gone 540 minutes without conceding a single goal. Overall, the reigning champions have conceded just 11 times this season and have kept an insane 16 clean sheets in 25 games!
Mamelodi Sundowns Ladies will be aiming to make it seven straight wins as they face Coal City Wizards at the Lucas Moripe Stadium on Wednesday.
The Brazilians have registered 67 points, 16 points ahead of second-placed TUT FC. JVW FC are in third place with 46 points.
Boitumelo Rabale and Miche Minnies are tied on 16 goals apiece on the Sundowns’ scoring chart. Andisiwe Mgcoyi has 10 goals, Melinda Kgadiete has 8 strikes to her name while Rhoda Mulaudzi sits on 7 goals.
