Teams: Mamelodi Sundowns v Maritzburg United
Date: 13 December 2017
Venue: Loftus Versfeld Stadium
Mamelodi Sundowns will look to continue their winning momentum when they host Maritzburg United in an Absa Premiership clash at the Loftus Versfeld Stadium.
Sundowns followed their comfortable win over Baroka FC with a hard-fought 1-0 win over Golden Arrows on Sunday afternoon, which propelled the Pretoria giants to the top of the log standings.
Masandawana's enterprising football has seen the likes of Themba Zwane, Percy Tau and Sibusiso Vilakazi terrorise opposition defences and Pitso Mosimane will be hoping that their fine form continues to bring the desired results for the club.
The Brazilians will be without the services of Khama Billiat and Anthony Laffor for tonight's encounter.
Fadlu David's Maritzburg United have gone through a slump after a great start to the Absa Premiership season.
However, the men from Kwa-Zulu Natal are on the road to discovering their form after back-to-back victories over Cape Town City and Baroka moved them from the bottom half of the log to eighth position.
With both teams high on confidence after a number of good performances, this encounter promises to be an entertaining clash.
Here's how they line up:
Sundowns: 14. Onyango, 4. Langerman, 29. Soumahoro, 27. Morena, 32. Madisha, 7. Manyisa, 8. Kekana, 13. Mabunda, 11. Vilakazi, 18. Zwane, 22. Tau.
Maritzburg: 31. Ofori, 25. Xulu, 13. Makaringe , 15. Maboe, 16. Fransman, 22. Mokate, 19. Rusike, 3. Sanoka, 2. Onyango, 8. Ndlovu, 29. Mekoa.
