DStv Premiership 

Teams: Mamelodi Sundowns v Royal AM

Date: 08 December 2021

Venue:  Loftus Versfeld Stadium

Time: 15h30

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.

Check out the 12 coaching changes in the DStv Premiership this season!

Here's how they line up:

Sundowns: 1. Mweene, 5. Lebusa, 7. Lakay, 28. De Reuck, 27. Morena, 4. Kekana, 32. Kutumela, 15. Jali, 35. Maema, 24. Vilakazi, 38. Shalulile.
