Stunning start to PSL season
A typical curtain raiser, the midweek's full Premier Soccer League programme produced one result that sent shock waves around the soccer fraternity.
This when unfancied AmaZulu - who only remained in top-flight football through the dreaded playoffs - defeated defending champions Mamelodi Sundowns 2-1 at Loftus.
No one had given Usuthu a chance, especially after Sundowns went berserk in their preceding fixture, routing Bloemfontein Celtic 4-1.
In another upset result, Moroka Swallows proved once again that they have Orlando Pirates' number when they pipped them 1-0 at Ellis Park, a result that did not go down well with "The Ghost", who vented their anger on coach Bibey Mutombo.
The full midweek results were:
Benoni Premier Utd 0, Kaizer Chiefs 2;
Orlando Pirates 0, Moroka Swallows 1;
Mamelodi Sundowns 1, AmaZulu 2;
Santos 2, Free State Stars 2;
Black Leopards 2, SuperSport United 0;
Lamontville Golden Arrows 0, Platinum Stars 1;
Celtic 1, Ajax Cape Town 0; and
Jomo Cosmos 0, Bidvest Wits 0.
