CAF Champions League

Starting XI: Sundowns v AS Vita

CAF Champions League
 
Teams: Mamelodi Sundowns v AS Vita
 
Date: 20 April 2016
 
Venue: Lucas Moripe Stadium
 
Mamelodi Sundowns host Congolese outfit AS Vita in a must-win CAF Champions League encounter on Wednesday night.
 
The Brazilians lost the first leg of the clash in Kinshasa 1-0, which makes progress into the next round a difficult prospect.
 
A 1-0 win for coach Pitso Mosimane's side will push the tie into extra-time, while conceding an away goal will require 'Downs to win by two goals.
 
Sundowns come into the game on the back of two consecutive Absa Premiership wins against Jomo Cosmos and Polokwane City respectively.
 
The two sides' last meeting before the first-leg clash, was back in 2009 when AS Vita claimed a 3-2 aggregate victory.
 
On the team news front, Sundowns goalkeeper Denis Onyango should be fit to play, while Khama Billiat is available after missing the first leg due to suspension.
 
Here's how they line up:
 
Sundowns: 40 Sandilands, 16 Mphahlele, 4 Langerman, 2 Nthethe, 6 Arendse, 8 Kekana, 29 Bangaly, 18 Zwane, 7 Dolly, 20 Billiat, 25 Castro
 
AS Vita: 16. Lukong, 20. Bafola, 15. Botuli, 26. Makwekwe, 13. Mutambala, 8. Traore, 3. Ikanga, 22. Wango, 18. Batezadio, 9. Kule, 19. Morisson
