Teams: Mamelodi Sundowns v SuperSport United
Date: 03 August 2019
Venue: Lucas Moripe Stadium
Mamelodi Sundowns will be looking to get the defence of the Absa Premiership title underway with a win when they face SuperSport United at Lucas Moripe Stadium on Saturday.
The match gets underway at 15h00.
Pitso Mosimane opted to take his squad for Botswana and Zambia for pre-season, which in years gone by has been interrupted by their involvement in the CAF Champions League.
Sundowns have been quiet in the transfer window so far, having only announced the acquisition of Mauricio Affonso, while Nyiko Mobbie and Sammy Seabi have also joined up with the champions.
SuperSport, who finished sixth last season, bolstered their squad with the addition of Kuda Mahachi, Thamsanqa Gabuza and Jesse Don.
