Absa Premiership Starting XI: Baroka v Maritzburg United, 15 April 2018
Teams: Baroka v Maritzburg United
Date: 15 April 2018

Baroka will be desperate to get back to winning ways in the Absa Premiership when they host Maritzburg United in a league match at the Peter Mokaba Stadium on Sunday.
The match is scheduled to get underway at 15h00.
Baroka have won just one of their last nine league matches after suffering a 2-1 defeat at home to Mamelodi Sundowns on April 8. The Limpopo side has picked up just eight points from a possible 27 in the sequence.
Maritzburg, on the other hand, played to their ninth draw of the season when they were held 1-1 at home by Cape Town City on April 7. The KwaZulu-Natal side were on course for all three points, but conceded a late equaliser to bring up a second straight winless match.
In head-to-head stats, Baroka and Maritzburg have met in three league matches since the start of last season. The Team of Choice boasts a 100 percent record in the rivalry, including a 3-0 triumph earlier this season in Pietermaritzburg thanks to goals from Evans Rusike (two) and Siphesihle Ndlovu.
