In Saturday's earlier kick-off, Sundowns overcame Chippa United, 3-0, to return to the second spot, piling the pressure on Amakhosi who were scheduled to host Maritzburg United in a late afternoon kick-off.
The log leaders, however, failed to extend their lead at the summit of the table as they unexpectedly fell to a 2-1 defeat at home.
With Downs winning, and Chiefs losing, Twitter exploded after the matches of the country's two top sides.
Here's how Twitter reacted:
