DStv Premiership

Teams: Stellenbosch v Mamelodi Sundowns

Date: 04 December 2021

Venue: Danie Craven Stadium

Time: 201h15

Sundowns had a slight dip in form with back-to-back draws against Cape Town City and SuperSport United but they got back to winning ways with a 2-0 win over Sekhukhune United last weekend.

The Brazilians are the only unbeaten side, with an eight-point lead at the top of the log and they could stretch their lead to double figures if they win and third-placed Royal AM don't get maximum points against AmaZulu.

Sundowns goalkeeper Denis Onyango won't be available due to suspension after he was red-carded against Babina Noko.

Stellies' brilliant to the season, on the other hand, is starting to become a thing of the past, as they lost for the first time against Orlando Pirates and suffered another loss to Royal AM last weekend.

Steve Barker charges, as a result, dropped down to fourth on the log with 21 points, although they could reclaim second spot if they get back to winning ways.

Sundowns completed a league double over Stellies last season, with a 3-0 victory at home before claiming a 2-1 victory in the Western Cape.

Here's how they line up:

Stellenbosch: 17. Stephens, 26. Mcaba, 24. Kwinika, 16. Johannes, 7. Van Rooyen, 3. Letsoenyo, 27. Jabaar, 23. Adams, 13. Dimgba, 9. Du Preez, 10. Mendieta

Subs: 32. Bombay, 5. Mthethwa, 11. Khunyedi, 25. Moseamedi, 12. Scott, 19. Sinkala, 21. Isaacs, 20. Robertson, 29. Van Wyk

Sundowns: 1. Mweene, 5. Lebusa, 25. Mudau, 40. Coetzee, 7. Lakay, 4. Kekana, 15. Jali, 23. Domingo, 32. Kutumela, 18. Zwane, 38. Shalulile.

Subs: 16. Pieterse, 28. De Reuck, 34. Mvala, 37. Modiba, 11. Erasmus, 26. Kapinga, 27. Morena, 9. Safranko, 10. Sirino.
