Record-Breaking Sundowns Edge Stellenbosch 1-0, Extend Unbeaten Streak with Nku Goal

Mamelodi Sundowns etched their name further into South African football history with a gritty 1-0 victory over Stellenbosch FC, extending their unprecedented unbeaten streak in the DStv Premiership to a record-shattering 51 games.

The Brazilians, already crowned league champions, demonstrated their relentless pursuit of excellence at the Danie Craven Stadium.

The match was a tense affair, with both teams vying for control, but it was Lesiba Nku who emerged as the hero for Sundowns.

His second-half goal, a clinical finish from a Thembinkosi Lorch cross, secured the win and wrote another chapter in the club’s incredible season.

The victory not only solidified Sundowns’ dominance but also saw them break the league’s all-time points record. Surpassing the 71-point mark set in the 2015/16 season, they have set a new benchmark for domestic football.

Stellenbosch, despite their valiant efforts, were left to rue a missed penalty in the first half. Iqraam Rayners, the league’s in-form striker, was denied from the spot by the brilliance of Ronwen Williams, a save that ultimately proved pivotal in the final result.
