Starting XI: Sundowns v Chiefs

Kaizer Chiefs coach Stuart Baxter will be hoping to make a winning start in his second stint against rivals Mamelodi Sundowns in the MTN8 on Sunday afternoon.

MTN8

Teams: Mamelodi Sundowns v Kaizer Chiefs

Date: 15 August 2021

Venue: Lucas Moripe Stadium

Time: 15h00

The Brazilians qualified for the tournament after winning their fourth consecutive DStv Premiership title and will be looking to go beyond the first round, after they were eliminated by Bloemfontein Celtic at this stage last season.

Sundowns don't have a good history in this tournament, as they are yet to win it under the current sponsors, although co-coach Manqoba Mngqithi won it back in 2009 with Golden Arrows.

Chiefs, meanwhile, almost missed out on this competition, after confirming their participation in the last game of the 2020/21 DStv Premiership season, where they eventually finished eighth on the table.

Amakhosi reached the semi-finals of this competition last season but they were eliminated by Soweto rivals and eventual winners Orlando Pirates with an aggregate score of 5-0.

The Glamour Boys last lifted the MTN8 title in Baxter's previous stint in 2014 , have not won a major trophy since winning the league and cup double in that 2014/15 season under the British tactician.

Here's how they start:

Sundowns: Mweene, Mudau, De Reuck, Lebusa, Lakay, Mvala, Coetzee, Domingo, Modiba, Zwane, Shalulile

Subs: Pieterse, Lunga, Morena, Grant Kekana, Maema, Jali, Mkhulise, Safranko, Kutumela.

Chiefs: Khune, Hlanti, Mathoho, Cardoso, Blom, Alexander, Nange, Sekgota, Parker, Billiat, Nurkovic

Subs: Petersen, Frosler, Mabiliso, Njabulo Ngcobo, Akumu, Mshini Ngcobo, Mashiane, Radebe, Dolly
