Starting XI: Leopards v Sundowns

DStv Premiership

Teams: Black Leopards v Mamelodi Sundown

Date: 27 January 2021

Venue: Thohoyandou Stadium

Mamelodi Sundowns will have a chance to pull clear at the top of the DStv Premiership standings when they visit Black Leopards on Wednesday evening.

The match will get underway at 17h00.

The Brazilians enter the match on the back of three consecutive draw, the last of which was a 1-1 scoreline against Swallows FC on Saturday, where they conceded an equaliser deep in stoppage time.

Sundowns remain top of the standing, although they boast the same amount of points SuperSport United and the Birds, who sit in second and third spot respectively.

Leopards, on the other hand, are still smarting from two consecutive defeats to Cape Town City and Chippa United, the last of which against the Chilli Boys on Saturday saw Lidoda Duvha part ways with former coach Dylan Kerr.

Morgan Shivambu and Lehlohonolo Seema and goalkeeper coach Sam Banda have been given joint caretaker-coaching duties at the Limpopo side.

Masandawana completed a league double over Leopards last season, which included a 2-1 victory in this fixture.
