Absa Premiership Starting XI: Maritzburg United v Mamelodi Sundowns 25 April 2018
Teams: Maritzburg United v Mamelodi Sundowns
Date: 25 April 2018
Venue: Harry Gwala Stadium
Mamelodi Sundowns will look to edge closer to the Absa Premiership title when they lock horns with Maritzburg United at Harry Gwala Stadium this evening.
The two sides faced off just days ago, with Maritzburg running out 3-1 winners in the Nedbank Cup semi-finals at the same venue.
In the league, Sundowns head into the clash having won their last five matches, the last of which was a 1-0 victory over Golden Arrows.
Pitso Mosimane's men sit top of the standings, six points ahead of Orlando Pirates, who face Bidvest Wits tonight, with two games left for both sides after this evening's action.
Maritzburg, meanwhile, will be looking to cement third spot.
The Team of Choice defeated Golden Arrows 1-0 in their last league encounter.
The hosts have no major injury or suspension concerns, while Sundowns will be without Gaston Sirino, who was sent off in the Ke Yona defeat on Sunday.
Sundowns can win the title tonight if Orlando Pirates drop points against Bidvest Wits and the Brazilians secure at least a draw.

Maritzburg: 31. Ofori, 16. Fransman , 32. Sanoka, 6. Thlone, 25. Xulu, 26. Shandu, 13. Makaringe, 8. Ndlovu, 15. Maboe, 36. Kunene, 9. Fileccia.
