Cape Town - It just wouldn't fall for Mamelodi Sundowns in front of goal
as they were forced to settle for a 0-0 draw with a stubborn Bloemfontein
Celtic at the Lucas Moripe Stadium.
The first half saw the spoils shared, with both sides having
good chances to score and both goalkeepers ensuring the score remains goalless
with some excellent saves.
Sundowns took control of the game in the second half, but
were on several occasions unlucky not to find the net.
After the match, Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane did not shy away from admitting that his charges are struggling to find the back of the net.
"It's life. If you want to be emotional with it and you
don't think properly, you can be emotional," Mosimane said as quoted by KickOff website.
"These are the champions of Africa,
champions of South Africa. These are the Super Cup winners.
"It does happen, what am I supposed to do if the ball
doesn't want to cross the line? I know what this team is capable of doing.
"We must go through this, we can't buy a win. We don't
blame anybody. The ball must cross the line and must go in and that's it."
The 0-0 result kept Sundowns in fifth position with three games in hand. Mosimane's charges are seven points behind log leaders Cape Town City and set to face SuperSport United in their next Premiership clash.
Meanwhile, the Brazilians will shift their focus to the Nedbank Cup this weekend with a Last 16 encounter against Golden Arrows on Saturday.
Kick off is at 15:00.
