Heading into the final  day of the league, Ernst Middnedorp coached side, Kaizer Chiefs just needed a win against Baroka FC and hope that Mamelodi Sundowns doesn’t win their game against Black leaopards with a bigger goal margin of  more than three.

At the end of half time, Kaizer Chiefs were one goal up against Baroka FC , thanks to Khama Billiant’s 39th strike while Pitso Mossimane boys were also leading by one goal after heroic Mbaoe strike before end of half time.

Heading into second and final half of the games.

Baroka’s Kambala found the leveler in the 59th minute of the game bring the game level (1-1) and  Baroka FC hold on to the score untill the final whistle.

While on the other of Sundowns -Black leopard game, Lebohang Maboe added two goals more to complete his hat trick in the day in 53′ and 90+6′.

After the final whistle in both games  this meant that Mamelodi Sundowns are the 2019/20 seasons Premier Soccer  league Champions for the third consecutive times repeating the feat they did between (1997-00) seasons.
