Former Cranes captain Denis Onyango’s Mamelodi Sundowns clinched a record extending fifth successive league title.
The Brazilians secured their fifth consecutive DStv Premiership title after being held to a goalless draw by third-placed Cape Town City at Loftus Versveld on Wednesday evening.
Sundowns become the first team to win the league title in five consecutive seasons in 2017/2018, 2018/2019, 2019/2020, 2020/21 and the current 2021/2022 campaign.
Onyango has now won nine South African league titles, six with Sundowns and three with Supersport United.
Sundowns came into this contest wounded after being eliminated by Angolan giants Petro de Luanda at the quarterfinal stage of the CAF Champions League.
The point against Cape Town moved Sundowns 13 points above second placed Royal AM (45pts), who have four games remaining, while 17 ahead of the Citizens (41pts) who have five games to play this season.
The Brazilians are on course of a domestic treble, having won the MTN8, the league and in the semi-finals of the Nedbank Cup.
