Bidvest Wits and Bucs will have something to say about that next week, but right now the stalemate failed to inspire the neutrals.
Still, there are some media members excited about Masandawana's clapping and fan support at the end of the game.
There's also the funny Twitter reactions from the Pirates and Sundowns fans to look forward to.
Otherwise Pirates lost their opportunity to overtake the Brazilians at the top of the PSL table.
☠️Thembinkosi Lorch has taken the game to Sundowns this evening, with plenty of 1v2 situations for the Bucs attacker. He’s come up trumps with his trickery & has inched close to pushing the Bucs into pole position. #OnceAlways pic.twitter.com/T8vAWP0NyX— Orlando Pirates FC (@orlandopirates) April 1, 2019
4-3-3 suited my players better especially for Ndengane and Jele at the back they look solid i wish the coach will continui to play 4 at the back Mulenga played well too even though we didnot win the game but i was impressed by the Pirates perfomance against Sundowns— Nkosinathi Gamede (@gamede161) April 1, 2019
This from Wayne Sandilands for Sundowns away to Orlando Pirates was like Loris Karius' 2nd moment for Liverpool against Real Madrid in the Uefa Champions League final last year, when Gareth Bale scored with that relatively harmless long range effort @LFC @Real @realmadriden https://t.co/cOr0oNGP2v— Ignat Football (@IgnatFootball) April 1, 2019
I will be supporting Sundowns. I want them to end Orlando Pirates season the same way they wanted Cape Town City to end ours 😂😂😂— kholiswa khosidiva Ntakumba (@KNtakumba) April 1, 2019
