The match is scheduled to get underway at 18h00.
Sundowns will be seeking revenge as well after Usuthu came from behind to defeat Pitso Mosimane's charges 2-1 earlier in the season.
The Brazilians will not want to slip up at this stage of the season, with the Soweto giants Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates breathing heavily down their neck with only eight round of matches remaining.
The Tshwane giants played to a 1-1 draw with neighbors SuperSport United last weekend and will be looking for all a full haul in KwaZulu-Natal.
Usuthu, meanwhile, can't count themselves safe just yet as they occupy 10th spot, four points above the relegation/playoff spot.
Cavin Johnson's charges played to a 0-0 draw with Free State Stars last week and will want to improve as the season reaches the final straight.
The Durban outfit will be without the services of Butholezwe Ncube, who is suspended for tonight's encounter.
