We have been waiting for league action for some time and it is finally upon us, as Mamelodi Sundowns take on Sowetan side, Moroka Swallows.
The fixture will be the first competitive outing Sundowns will play since December last year and, boy, are we excited to see what unravels tonight.
With the likes of Bryce Moon and Punch Masenamela just two of five having left in January, the players will be hungry to prove their worth in a squad laden with quality.
History against Swallows certainly bodes well for Pitso Mosimane and our side, who have claimed 30 wins compared to 13 for the Birds - while 16 matches have been drawn.
Out of those games, Sundowns have won over half (16) of their 28 home matches against Swallows, suffering just seven defeats in the process.
This should leave the team feeling highly confident that they will begin 2015 with a win, providing hope that they can decrease the gap that Kaizer Chiefs currently hold over our heads to 11 points.
Masandawana, what would your preferred starting XI be and what are your predictions for the outcome of this match?
