Our Best Five Stats from the PSL Weekend.

November 8, 2021

2001 – SuperSport came from behind to win over TS Galaxy after conceding the first goal in the 63rd minute. It’s the latest they have conceded the opening goal & gone on to win a league game since September 2001 v Black Leopards – a match Kaitano Tembo played in.

25 – Downs have won 25 points in their opening nine league games. This equals the best ever start by a top-flight side in PSL history (Chiefs 96/97, Downs 99/00, Chiefs 14/15, Downs this season).

16 – Marumo Gallants were the 16th different team Sundowns have won against this year, the most different teams they have won against in a single calendar since 1999 (19 teams).

10 – Seven points in the opening 10 league games at Chippa is Gavin Hunt’s worst ever start to a top-flight season.

20 – Marumo Gallant were the 20th different top-flight side Shalulile has scored against in his PSL career. He has scored against every single club he has played at least 90 minutes against in his top-flight career except for Platinum Stars & TTM (though he’s scored against Gallants).

*The only other team he has not scored against are Ajax Cape Town, but he only played 59 minutes against them.
