Mamelodi Sundowns confirmed that 10 players have been ruled out of this afternoon’s league encounter.
After booking their spot in the CAF Champions League group stages, Sundowns return to DStv Premiership action this afternoon with a clash against Baroka FC out at the Peter Mokaba Stadium.
However, going into the encounter, Sundowns confirmed that 10 first-team players have been ruled out of today’s clash.
Kermit Erasmus, Mauricio Affonso, Mosa Lebusa, Bangalay Soumahoro, Khuliso Mudua, Promise Mkhuma, Sibusiso Vilakazi, Sphelele Mkhize, Haashim Domingo and Grant Margeman have all been excluded from the Sundowns’ squad.
However, a positive for the Brazilians is that Themba Zwane finally makes his return to the squad and has been included straight into the starting line-up.
Sundowns currently sit top of the DStv Premiership standings, though joined on points with Swallows FC who are only following behind due to an inferior goal difference.
However, it remains to be seen whether the Brazilians will be able to increase their point lead at the top before Swallows face-off with Orlando Pirates at the Orlando Stadium on Sunday afternoon.
