It’s all even at the summit of the Absa Premiership table after Mamelodi Sundowns edged Kaizer Chiefs 1-0 at the Orlando Stadium on Thursday night.
The two title contenders are now neck and neck in the race for the R15 million first prize money.
Downs bagged the precious three points courtesy of a goal from Gastón Sirino in the 35th minute.
The highly-anticipated clash was a hard-fought battle with little separating the teams.
Both teams are now on 53 points with three games remaining in the league – Chiefs only remain ahead due to a superior goal difference.
Without their talismanic striker Samir Nurkovic, who was suspended, Chiefs were one dimensional and predictable in the game.
The championship could go down to the wire and only be decided on the last day of the league on September 5.
The trophy drought for the Glamour Boys could be extended as they let slip of their advantage.
But they will only have themselves to blame for relinquishing their lead as at some point, Amakhosi had an 11-point gap at the top of the table.
For Downs, it was sweet revenge from the earlier 0-2 loss to Chiefs at Loftus Versfeld in October.
Chiefs will next take on Bidvest Wits while Downs face Baroka (both on Sunday).
