Starting XI: Chiefs v Sundowns

DSTV Premiership

Teams: Kaizer Chiefs v Mamelodi Sundowns

Date: 24 October 2020

Venue: FNB Stadium

Kaizer Chiefs will have revenge on their minds when they meet Mamelodi Sundowns in opening round of the DSTV Premiership action on Saturday afternoon.

Sundowns pipped Chiefs to the title on the very last day of the season, despite Amakhosi having led the standings for pretty much the entire campaign.

And while the Brazilians have been able to strengthen their squad, the Glamour Boys have been unable to make any new signings due to the transfer ban imposed on them due to their pursuit of Madagascan midfielder Andriamirado 'Dax' Andrianarimanana.

However, both sides do have new head coaches at the helm. After the drama on the final day of the season, Ernst Middendorp was replaced by four-time PSL winner Gavin Hunt.

Pitso Mosimane left Chloorkop to join Egyptian giants Al-Ahly with Manqoba Mngqithi and Rhulani Mokwena taking over as co-coaches while Steve Komphela has also been brought in.

The last time the sides met was in the bio-bubble in August, with Gaston Sirino scoring the only goal of the game as Sundowns prevailed 1-0 on that occasion on their way to a fifth title in seven seasons.

Here's how they line up:

Chiefs: 32. Khune, 39. Frosler, 4. Cardoso, 2. Mphahlele, 20. Sasman, 31. Katsande, 21. Manyama, 37. Ngcobo, 11. Billiat, 8. Castro, 25. Parker

Subs: 44. Bvuma, 5. Baccus, 10. Ntshangase, 22. Zulu, 30. Ngezana, 19. Mashiane, 45. Blom, 46. Sifama, 47. Lesako.

Sundowns: 14. Onyango, 27. Morena, 7. Lakay, 3. Nascimento, 32. Madisha, 15. Jali, 40. Coetzee, 8. Kekana, 11. Erasmus, 18. Zwane, 38. Shalulile.

Subs: 1. Mweene, 25. Mudau, 5. Lebusa, 12. Maluleka, 41. Mvala, 16. Modiba, 23. Domingo, 21. Mkhulise, 33. Maboe.
