Sundowns' Starting XI v Petro

CAF Champions League

Teams: Petro de Luanda v Mamelodi Sundowns

Date: 25 January 2020

Venue: Estadio Nacional 11 de Novembro

Mamelodi Sundowns will be out to secure top spot in their CAF Champions League when they visit Petro de Luanda on Saturday afternoon.

Pitso Mosimane's men clinched a spot in the quarter-finals on the previous matchday after defeating USM Alger 2-1 at Loftus Versfeld, with Thapelo Morena and Sibusiso Vilakazi finding the back of the net.

Sundowns currently top Group C, four points ahead of Wydad Casablanca but victory this afternoon will see the side secure top spot with a game to spare.

Petro, meanwhile, have nothing but pride to play for after Wydad Casablanca secured a spot in the quarter-finals after defeating USM Alger 3-1 on Friday night.

The Angolan outfit are yet to secure a win in the group stage campaign after registering two draws for their four encounters.

When these sides met in Pretoria on matchday one in Group C, goals from Mauricio Affonso, Madisha and Mkhulise guided Sundowns to a 3-0 win on the day.

Here's how they line up:

Sundowns: 14. Onyango, 2. Madisha, 3. Nascimento, 5. Lebusa, 16. Ngcongca, 15. Jali, 13. Mabunda, 18. Zwane, 27. Morena, 10. Sirino, 11. Vilakazi.

Subs: 1. Mweene, 4. Langerman, 6. Arendse, 17. Mahlambi, 21. Mkhulise, 23. Meza, 25. Maboe.
