Mamelodi Sundowns have been the best team in the Premier Soccer League these past few years. When it comes to the PSL this season, Masandawana have won more games, and scored more goals than every other team. With that in mind, we would like to take a look at their top scorers across all competitions this campaign.
Mamelodi Sundowns top goal scorers across all competitions
It's important to note that this list does not include goals from CAF Champions League qualifying games, or friendly matches.
Lucas Ribeiro – 8 goals
At the time of writing, Lucas Ribeiro is Mamelodi Sundowns' top scorer in the Premier Soccer League, as well as the joint top-scorer amongst all players in the competition. The Brazilian player is enjoying his first season with Masandawana; as seven of his eight goals came in South Africa's top division. He also scored once in the CAF Champions League.
Although these don't count towards his total, it's fair to point out that Ribeiro scored twice in the CAF Champions League qualifying rounds, and once on his debut in a friendly game.
Peter Shalulile – 8 goals
Peter Shalulile is also having a great season with the Sundowns. He found the back of the net four times in the PSL, twice in the MTN8 Cup, once in the CAF Champions League and once in the African Football League (AFL).
The Namibian player has scored in four different competitions so far, he also registered two goals in a friendly game, and one in the qualifying rounds of the CAF Champions League this season.
Grant Kekana – 3 goals
Unlike Ribeiro and Shalulile, all of Grant Kekana's goals came in one tournament. The Bafana Bafana player scored three times in the PSL this season, which is an impressive feat for a defender.
Aubrey Maphosa Modiba – 3 goals
Aubrey Maphosa Modiba will be remembered for scoring the goal that clinched the AFL title for Masandawana. He has scored three times so far; once in the African Football League, and twice in the PSL.
Marcelo Allende – 2 goals
Marcelo Allende has scored twice for Bafana Ba Style this season. One of those came in the Carling Knockout Cup, while the other was in the AFL. At the time of writing, the Chilean is yet to score in the Premier Soccer League.
Lesiba Nku – 2 goals
Lesiba Nku put up a man-of-the-match performance in Mamelodi Sundowns' 4-0 victory over the Lamontville Golden Arrows back in August. His only other goal since then came in the CAF Champions League qualifiers.
Gaston Sirino – 2 goals
Gaston Sirino scored the equaliser in Masandawana's 2-2 draw with TS Galaxy in the Carling Knockout Cup. However, that didn't help much, as the Sundowns crashed out of the tournament on penalties. The Uruguayan also scored once in the CAF Champions League.
Thapelo Maseko – 2 goals
It can be said that Thapelo Maseko's goals helped Mamelodi Sundowns win the inaugural African Football League event. The Bafana Bafana player scored twice this season, and both were in the AFL. One of those goals ensured the Sundowns would advance to the semi-finals. Interestingly, Maseko's other goal was the only goal scored in Masandawana's two-legged semi-final tie with Egyptian heavyweights Al Ahly.
Mamelodi Sundowns players with one goal this season
There are also a few honourable mentions, players who have scored just once this season. These are Khuliso Mudau, Siyabonga Mabena, Sipho Mbule, Neo Maema, Junior Mendieta, Abdelmounaim Boutouil, Teboho Mokoena and Themba Zwane. Although these players have one goal to their name, it's worth mentioning that some of those goals were all the Sundowns needed to win in some cases.
