SuperSport are unbeaten in their last six league matches, though four of those games have been drawn – including their most recent outing, a 0-0 stalemate away to high-flying Bloemfontein Celtic on November 28.

Sundowns played to their sixth draw of the season when they were held 0-0 at home by title rivals Orlando Pirates on November 10. The Tshwane side remain the only unbeaten team in the league thus far in 2018/19.

In head-to-head terms, United and Sundowns have clashed in 54 league matches since 1990. The Brazilians have dominated the rivalry, claiming 28 wins compared to 14 for Matsatsantsa, while 12 games have been drawn.

The team in blue have managed five wins from 27 home matches in the rivalry, suffering 16 defeats in the process.

Last season the Brazilians took four points off their rivals, winning 2-0 away (with goals from Hlompho Kekana and Themba Zwane) and drawing 1-1 at home (Percy Tau cancelled out Thabo Mnyamane’s opener) to extend their unbeaten run in the rivalry to 10 league matches.
