The Absa Premiership champions qualified for the knockout stages after finishing top of Group C ahead of Wydad Casbalanca in January.

The Brazilians and TP Mazembe were the only two sides to end the group stage campaign without suffering a single defeat.

Pitso Mosimane's charges will come up against an Al Ahly outfit who finish second in Group, just one point ahead of third Al Hilal.

The record holders will also be well rested like their South African counter-parts after their encounter after Zamalek failed to show for the Cairo Derby earlier this week.

Revenge will still be on the minds of Al Ahly, who suffered a humiliating 5-0 defeat to the South African champions in last season's group stage encounter, although they did win the reverse fixture at home.

The 5-0 mauling in 2019 is Sundowns' only victory in the four occasions they have locked horns with the eight-time African champions.

Here's how they line up:

Sundowns: Onyango, Madisha, Arendse, Nascimento, Lebusa, Maboe, Kekana, Jali, Zwane, Vilakazi, Sirino.

Al Ahly: El-Shenawy, Fathy, Ibrahim, Metwaly, Maaloul, Afsha, El Soleya, Dieng, El Shahat, Mohsen, Ajayi.
