Mamelodi Sundowns face a tricky encounter on Wednesday afternoon as they host Royal AM in the DStv Premiership at Loftus Versfeld Stadium.
Teams: Mamelodi Sundowns v Royal AM
Date: 08 December 2021
Venue: Loftus Versfeld Stadium
The Brazilians will be concerned that they have drawn more matches than they have won in their last five outings after they rescued a 1-1 draw against Stellenbosch over the weekend.
Nevertheless, the defending league champions remain unbeaten and sit eight points clear at the top of the log heading into this afternoon's fixture
Royal, meanwhile, will look to become the first side to inflict defeat on Sundowns this season, but they are currently nine points behind the leaders in third place on the log.
Thwihli Thwahla have only won twice in their last five matches and will be eager to return to winning ways after they were held to a goalless draw by AmaZulu over the weekend.
