The Brazilians are still smarting after they were knocked out of the CAF Champions League in the quarter-finals by Al Ahly on Saturday.

Pitso Mosimane’s charges were last in league action three weeks ago, after winning their third straight league encounter with a 2-1 victory over Bloemfontein Celtic.

Despite a three-week league hiatus, Sundowns still find themselves second on the log, seven points behind leaders Kaizer Chiefs with two games in hand.

Meanwhile, Stellies enter the encounter on the back of a 3-0 thrashing by Maritzburg United in the league almost two weeks ago.

Steve Barker’s troops were left lying 11th on the log and are only left with seven games to chase a top eight spot.

Masandawana ralied from behind to win the reverse fixture 3-1 at the Lucas Moripe Stadium in December last year.

Here's how they line up:

Stellenbosch: 35, Langeveldt, 42. Mobbie, 32. Mbekile, 4. De Goede, 5. Mthethwa, 13. Van Heerden, 12. Scott, 14. Msengi, 9. Du Preez, 17. Karuru, 18. Skelem.

Subs: 31. De Jong, 20. Robertson, 15. Bergman, 6. Moroole, 10. Rayners, 21. Isaacs, 29. Moon.

Sundowns: 14. Onyango, 16. Ngcongca, 3. Nascimento, 2. Madisha, 4. Langerman, 8. Kekana, 15. Jali, 10. Sirino, 18. Zwane, 11. Vilakazi, 26. Mkhulise.

Subs: 1. Mweene, 7. Lakay, 25. Ngoma, 33. Maboe, 5. Lebusa, 13. Mabunda, 23. Meza.
