Starting XI: Sundowns v Celtic

MTN8

Teams: Mamelodi Sundowns v Bloemfontein Celtic

Date: 17 August 2019

Venue: Lucas Moripe Stadium.

Mamelodi Sundowns get their MTN8 campaign underway against a Bloemfontein Celtic outfit full off confidence this evening.

The match gets underway at 20h15.
 
Sundowns secured a spot in the tournament after finishing first in the league, while Celtic ended the season in eighth position, beating out Kaizer Chiefs on the final day of the season.
 
The Brazilians, however, last tasted success in the competition back in 2007, when it was still known at the SAA Super Eight Cup.
 
After winning their opening Absa Premiership encounter of the season 2-0 against Tshwane rivals Supersport United, Sundowns slipped up with a 1-1 draw against Chippa United in their most recent fixture.
 
Phunya Sele Sele lost their opening league fixture 3-1 to Orlando Pirates before bouncing back with a 5-0 victory over Golden Arrows.
 
The Brazilians claimed a 1-0 victory in the sides' first meeting of last season before the return fixture ended in a 0-0 draw.
 
Here's how the sides line up:
 
Sundowns: 14. Onyango, 27. Morena, 6. Arendse, 5. Lebusa, 4. Langerman, 40. Coetzee, 8. Kekana, 18. Zwane, 10. Sirino, 11. Vilakazi, 33. Maboe.
