Mamelodi Sundowns’ aspirations of lifting the Absa Premiership trophy were dented after being held to a 0-0 draw by an impressive Orlando Pirates side at the Dobsonville Stadium on Tuesday evening. The two sides managed to settle into the contest fairly quickly with Pirates enjoying large spells of possession without creating any clear cut chances. Despite going into the final ten minutes of the encounter with 54% of possession Pirates couldn’t grab an arguably deserved opener as the Sundowns defence held firm. That’s how the contest ended with both teams happy to share the spoils of an intriguing contest.
