Teams: Mamelodi Sundowns v Black Leopards
Date: 06 February 2019
Venue: Loftus Versfeld Stadium
Mamelodi Sundowns will look to leapfrog Orlando Pirates in the Absa Premiership standings when they host Black Leopards this evening.
The match is scheduled to get underway at 19h30.
Sundowns were handed their first league last week after going down 2-0 to AmaZulu on home soil.
The Brazilians have since bolstered their attack with Emiliano Tade, who found the back of the net in the side's 3-1 win over ASEC Mimosas in the CAF Champions League over the weekend.
Heading into the encounter, Sundowns sit in third spot, six points behind league leaders Bidvest Wits but they can move second with a win this evening.
On the other hand, Leopards will be looking to restore some pride after they suffered a 3-0 loss at the hands of Bloemfontein Celtic three days ago.
The Polokwane outfit will be without the services of Khuliso Mudau, who was sent off in the loss in the Free State.
Here's how they line up:
Sundowns: 1. Mweene, 6. Arendse, 3. Nascimento, 27. Morena, 7. Lakay, 13. Mabunda, 8. Kekana, 18. Zwane, 26. Sirino, 33. Maboe, 28. Laffor.
