This week, we will finally close the curtain on what has been a most exciting 2016/17 PSL season. The teams played for everything in week 29 as some were gunning for the title, some for the top eight and others fought for their lives in the relegation battle.

Despite falling at the final hurdle this season, Mamelodi Sundowns can be proud of themselves.

However, Pitso Mosimane and his team are responsible for their fate as they had a number of opportunities to reclaim their league title.
Today, Orlando Pirates face off against Golden Arrows in an away game in a Nedbank Cup semi-final. The supporters have been emphasising the importance of this match to the Buccaneers, and today is judgement day.
