Starting XI: Sundowns v Chippa

DStv Premiership

Teams: Mamelodi Sundowns v Chippa United

Date: 31 January 2021

Venue: Loftus Versfeld Stadium

Mamelodi Sundowns will have a chance to stretch their lead at the top of the DStv Premiership when they host Chippa United on Sunday afternoon.

The match will get underway at 15h30.

The Brazilians got over their mini-slump of three successive draws by beating Black Leopards 2-1 in midweek despite playing the last half-an-hour or so with a man down after Mothobi Mvala's sending off.

The 1-1 draw between SuperSport United and Swallows on Saturday favoured Sundowns, who can now open a five-point lead at the summit with a win this afternoon.

On the other hand, the Chilli Boys have been impressive under Dan Malesela, as they have collected seven points from their last three matches, the last of which was a 3-0 thumping of Leopards last weekend.

Chippa sit in 13th spot, four points clear of the relegation zone and will be looking to extend their unbeaten run to four matches.

Masandawana took four points off the Chilli Boys last season and are yet to suffer a league defeat against this afternoon's opponents.

Here's how they line up:

Sundowns: 14. Onyango, 7. Lakay, 5. Lebusa, 3. Nascimento, 15. Jali, 10. Sirino, 21. Mkhulise, 33. Maboe, 18. Zwane, 11. Erasmus, 38. Shalulile.

Subs: 20. Goss, 37. Modiba, 19. Motupa, 22. Kapinga, 35. Mkhize, 23. Domingo, 12. Maluleka, 40. Coetzee, 24. Vilakazi.

Chippa: 16. Mtshali, 17. Damons, 4. Hanamub, 47. Nsabiyumva, 2. Konqobe, 44. Nhlapo, 10. Mdlinzo, 20. Cezu, 7. Mbenyane, 13. Mokhele, 8. Maloisane.

Subs: 30. Watenga, 28. Lebitso, 9. Eva Nga, 20. Mogakwe, 18. Mthethwa, 31. Laffor, 15. Kwem, 32. Lentjies, 21. Dinge.
