AmaZulu V Sundowns In Numbers

Absa Premiership Round 18 – AmaZulu vs Mamelodi Sundowns
 
Date: 24 February 2015
 
Time: 19:30
 
Venue: Moses Mabhida Stadium
 
AmaZulu who are still reeling at bottom of the table, will this evening welcome Absa Premiership defending champions, Mamelodi Sundowns at the Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban. Usuthu come from a disappointing Nedbank Cup last 32 exit to NFD campaigners, Golden Arrows, and meet the high-flying Brazilians who they have endured a torrid time from. Last season they suffered a humiliating 7-1 loss. Masandawana have claimed six wins between the two sides in the last 10 games, with the other four matches drawn, while Amabesh’ ankone have just six wins in 52 previous league meetings with Sundowns. Steve Barker’s side are currently 10 points away from safety, and will hope for a surprise shock result in their favour.
