South African football supporters witnessed some brilliant goals, even from the losers, Pirates.
The Buccaneers also managed to score a strange own goal by Ntsikelelo Nyauza inside the first minute of the match. There was so much to discuss and we take a look at the highlights of the fan reaction from social media.
Pirates coach Rhulani Mokwena was clearly upset with the way he mentioned Chiefs produced ''thuggish behaviour''. We can watch his reaction thanks to a Twitter post from the official SuperSport TV account.
Chiefs fans felt Mokwena was blowing on his fans wounds by talking so much about the game, but Pirates fans got behind their coach.
Before the game, many felt Mokwena's position would come under immense pressure if he lost twice to Chiefs in a week.
This is exactly what has happened as Chiefs also beat Pirates last weekend in the Telkom Knockout Cup (in a penalty shootout), but as we can see, Bucs fans are supporting their mentor through thick and thin.

@SAFA_net I believe we have found the head coach for our national team and he goes by the name Rhulani Mokwena.— Puleng Sirengqe (@PSirengqe) November 9, 2019
You can't expect life to be fair to you just because you are fair to life. Football does not always give you what you deserve, just mainly because you play well and deserve to win football matches. So we keep going☠️. In Rhulani MOKWENA I believe.#OnceAlways— SeJa22. (@LesediMokwena22) November 9, 2019

"We have to start turning these good performances into wins. We keep working harder to improve. Parker went and got into a swimming pool. We can't talk too much about it. I've watched it time and again. My analysts showed me all the mistakes." - Rhulani Mokwena. pic.twitter.com/e2rNwjS5ZR— PowerSport (@Power987Sport) November 9, 2019
