Starting XI: Wydad v Sundowns

CAF Champions League

Teams: Wydad Casablanca v Mamelodi Sundowns

Date: 17 August 2018

Venue: Stade Mohamed V

Mamelodi Sundowns will look to boost their hopes of advancing to the CAF Champions League knockout stage when they take on Wydad Casablanca.

The match is scheduled to get underway at 21h00.

Sundowns resurrected their group stage campaign with a 2-1 win over AS Togo-Port last month thanks to goals from Gaston Sirino and Sibusiso Vilakazi.

Pitso Mosimane's troops were involved in MTN8 action last weekend, as they recorded a 1-0 win over Golden Arrows.

Wydad, who are the defending champions, currently top the standings with two wins and two draws.

The Moroccan giants defeated Horoya 2-0 in their last Champions League encounter on home soil.

When these two sides met in the opening round of the group matches, they played out a 1-1 draw at the Lucas Moripe Stadium.

Here's how they line up:

Sundowns: 14. Onyango, 4. Langerman, 16. Nascimento, 20. Ngcongca, 23. Madisha, 8. Kekana, 15. Jali, 5. Sirino, 18. Zwane, 28. Laffor, 11. Vilakazi.

Subs: 1. Mweene, 2. Maboe, 6. Arendse, 10. Meza, 13. Mabunda, 19. Brockie, 24. Zulu.
