Starting XI: AmaZulu v Baroka

Absa Premiership 

Teams: AmaZulu v Baroka

Date: 04 August 2018

Venue: King Zwelithini Stadium

The King Zwelithini Stadium will play hosts to AmaZulu and Baroka FC in their opening Absa Premiership encounter on Saturday evening.

The match is scheduled to get underway at 20h15.

Usuthu finished the 2017-2018 season eighth spot, but they dropped to ninth after Ajax Cape Town were docked nine points, allowing SuperSport United to sneak into eighth.

The Durban outfit were busy in the transfer window, having brought in the likes of Nhlanhla Vilakazi, Marc Van Heerden, Moeneeb Josephs and Emiliano Tade.

Baroka, meanwhile, were pacesetters in the first half of last season but a drop in form in the second half saw them finish 14th.

The Limpopo outfit have bolstered their squad with the additions of Charles Molapo, Emmanuel Letlotlo and Botswana international Onkabetse Makgantai.

Baroka and Usuthu shared the spoils in this fixture last season, although the men from Limpopo claimed a 2-0 win in the reverse fixture.

Here's how they line up:

AmaZulu: Josephs, Sikhakhane, Mabiliso, Ouro-Akoriko, M. Gumede, Ncube, Vilakazi, Lumkwana, Sithebe, Cele, Tade.

Subs: Murambadoro, Van Heerden, Slawula, Morton, Ramphela, Hlalela, Khenyeza.

Baroka: Dlamini, Kgoetyane, Matome, Gebhardt, Mapheto, Madubanya, Makume, Chawaphiwa, Mdantsane, Chivaviro, Moseki, Hussein.
