The match will get underway at 19h30.

The Brazilians are the only unbeaten side so far in the league but are still playing their catch-up due to their involvement in the CAF Champions League.

Pitso Mosimane’s charges were last in competitive action this past Sunday after thrashing AmaZulu 5-0 in the first round of the Telkom Knockout, while their last clash in the Absa Premiership ended in a 2-1 victory over Black Leopards just before the international break.

Sundowns will be without first choice goalkeeper Denis Onyango, who has been given time off following the passing of his father.

On the other hand, the Lions of the North also had a winning start in the Telkom Knockout after edging Black Leopards 6-5 on penalties following a goalless draw in extra-time on Sunday.

Owen Da Gama’s troops have not lost a league match since going down 3-2 to Kaizer Chiefs in the opener in August, with their last encounter ending in a 2-0 triumph over Polokwane City.

In their duels last season, the first round clash ended goalless in Tshwane, while Sundowns edged the Lions of North 2-1 in the return fixture in Tembisa.

Here's how they line up:

Sundowns: 1. Mweene, 4. Langerman, 16. Ngcongca, 2. Madisha, 15. Jali, 8. Kekana, 5. Lebusa, 10. Sirino, 33. Maboe, 18. Zwane, 27. Morena.

Subs: 39. Ngcobo, 11. Vilakazi, 40. Coetzee, 7. Lakay, 21. Mkhulise, 17. Mahlambi, 9. Affonso.

Highlands: 32. Ngobeni, 10. Mokoena, 21. Mbhele, 23. Msimango, 24. Rae, 8. Mbunjana, 22. Williams, 43. Mbatha, 38. Shalulile, 14. Mvala, 12. Mogaila.

Subs: 30. Peters, 5. Fransman, 6. Letsholonyane, 48. Banda, 27. Jooste, 17. Motlafi, 7. Ndoro.
