Downs Announce Starting XI To Face Maniema

Mamelodi Sundowns will be aiming to secure their spot in the CAF Champions League when Maniema Union come to town for the second leg of their second preliminary round tie.

CAF Champions League

Teams: Mamelodi Sundowns v Maniema Union

Date: 24 October 2021

Venue: Loftus Versfeld

Time: 16h00

The defending DStv Premiership enter the second leg with a slight advantage after drawing 2-2 seven days ago, with Themba Zwane the two away goals on the day.

Sundowns had to switch their attention to league matters this week after defeating Golden Arrows 1-0 in a game where they managed to rest a few key individuals.

Themba Zwane, Rivaldo Coetzee and Lyle Lakay will return to the squad this afternoon after being rested for the Arrows encounter.

Sundowns have failed to win their last two home games in the Champions League, which includes a 1-1 draw with Al Ahly and a 2-0 defeat to Belouizdad.

A spot in the group stages awaits the winner while the loser will drop to the final play-off round in the Confederation Cup.

Here's how they line up:

Sundowns: D.Onyango, Coetzee, Lakay, Lebusa, Mudau, G. Kekana, Jali, Vilakazi, Kuutumela, Zwane, Shalulile.

Subs: Pieterse, Mkhulise, B.Onyango, Safranko, Maema, Morena, Erasmus, Modiba, Domingo.
