Sundowns V Swallows In Numbers

Absa Premiership Round 17 – Mamelodi Sundowns vs Moroka Swallows
 
Date: 10 February 2015
 
Time: 19:30pm
 
Venue: Lucas Moripe Stadium
 
The Absa Premiership returns after a seven-week break from the festive season and the recently concluded 2015 African Cup of Nations in Equatorial Guinea. Current league champions, Mamelodi Sundowns welcome Moroka Swallows to the Lucas Moripe Stadium in Atteridgeville, as they look to close the gap on league leaders Kaizer Chiefs. The Brazilians currently trail the Amakhosi by 15 points but have played a game less. The Dube Birds are looking to claw their way back into the top eight and an upset victory over Sundowns tonight could steer the struggling side into the ideal direction for the second round of the PSL.

A win is written all over Pitso Mosimane’s charges ahead of tonight’s league outing as they dominate on all fronts in terms of stats. The Dube Birds on the other hand will take heart from their entries into final third that stands at 71.2, compared to the home side’s 66, a reason why Fani Madida’s side have not lost in their last three matches.
