Swallows also finished 2014 on a high after a 2-1 win over AmaZulu, which extended their unbeaten run in the league to three matches.

The Birds currently occupy 13th place on the table with 19 points from 17 games, only two points above the relegation zone.

In head-to-head stats, Sundowns and Swallows have met in 59 league matches since 1985. The Brazilians have claimed 30 wins compared to 13 for the Birds, while 16 matches have been drawn. When the teams met earlier this season, the Brazilians claimed a 2-0 away win thanks to goals from Mame Niang and Kudakwashe Mahachi.
