Teams: Mamelodi Sundowns v FC Barcelona

Date: 16 May 2018

Venue: FNB Stadium

Absa Premiership champions Mamelodi Sundowns will lock horns with LaLiga champions FC Barcelona at the FNB Stadium this evening.

The match is scheduled to get underway at 18h15.

The Brazilians secured a record eighth Absa Premiership title this season after seeing off a challenge form runers-up Orlando Pirates.

Pitso Mosimane's men head into the clash on the back of a 0-0 draw with Bloemfontein Celtic in their final league game of the season over the weekend.

The Blaugrana come to South Africa to honour the friendly on the back of a shock 5-4 defeat to Levante in LaLiga over the weekend, which was their first loss of the 2017/18 league campaign.

Barça manager Ernesto Valverde has brought a star-studded squad to South Africa, with Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez, Andres Iniesta and Philippe Coutinho all included in the squad.

The Spanish giants have been in South Africa before as they defeated Sundowns 2-1 in 2007.

Only the injured Samuel Umtiti and Thomas Vermaelen have been left behind by Barca.

Here's how they line up:

Sundowns: Onyango, Langerman, Arendse, Soumahoro, Ngcongca, Mabunda, Kekana, Vilakazi, Billiat, Zwane, Tau.

Subs: Mweene, Manyisa, Sirino, Madisha, Zulu, Sekotlong, Brockie, Lebese, Morena, Ngoma, Nascimento.

Barca: Ter Stegen, Semedo, Digne, Mina, Rakitic, Busquets, D.Suarez, Alena, Iniesta, L.Suarez, Dembele.

Subs: Cillessen, Piqué, Messi, Coutinho, Paulinho, Paco Alcácer, Jordi Alba, S.Roberto, André Gomes, Aleix Vidal, Galarreta i J.Cuenca.

Pits has proved 1ns more that he's a cow coach,he just lucky downs have great players,.sundowns can beat Barcelona it's just that their coach let them down by just admiring the opposition,. The second half before the game end was better than the team he played almost fulltime,.. How can U live muren and asavela mbekile 4 the slow asomohoro,..he's got great players but he's fear cost the team,.pitso did the same thing against pirates,.. Beefing if the middle with slow players,..how can U paly,. Mabunda,kekana,ace,.and Vila,..he doesn't change his tektites for different teams,. He doesn't coach he just put his starting 11 ,.just like Mashaba,..and think they will play for themselves,..

Soumahhoro was Dembeles N1, Dunu should get rid of that cow. He always cost them, that nice own-goal he scored against chiefs being pressured by toothless Paez was a stunner. Yesterday he passed Dembele, Dembele asked for his number and hit Onyango with a stunner. ONyango is another cow, ayii

@Pirates_999, you are not making good sense. PSL Players might be professional footballers, but they are also football supporters. Like you, they have their own players.
