Starting XI: Highlands v Sundowns

Nedbank Cup Quarter-Final

Teams: Highlands Park v Mamelodi Sundowns

Date: 14 March 2020

Venue: Makhulong Stadium

Mamelodi Sundowns will be looking to keep their hopes of a domestic treble alive when they visit Highlands Park in the Nedbank Cup quarter-finals on Saturday evening.

The match will get underway at 18h00.

The Brazilians made it thus far after first knocking out neighbors SuperSport United 1-0 in the first round in early February, before dispatching fourth-tier outfit Vaal University of Technology 2-0 in late February.

Sundowns’ last outing was a narrow 1-0 win over Stellenbosch FC in the league on Wednesday as they went within four points of leaders Kaizer Chiefs.

Meanwhile, Highlands reached this stage for the first time in the PSL era after dumping out Kaizer Chiefs on penalties in the round of 16 following a 1-1 draw at the Makhulong Stadium.

The Brazilians have already beaten the Lions of the North in their league clash in October last year while the reverse fixture is set for next Saturday.

Here's how they line up:

Highlands: Kapini, Mbhele, Ramoraka, Fransman, Mzava, Mvala, Mbatha, Motsepe, Shalulile, Nyatama, Makhaula.

Subs: Heugh, Munyai, Letsholonyane, Mokoena, Rae, Jooste, Nyembe.

Sundowns: Onyango, Ngcongca, Langerman, Nascimento, Madisha, Kekana, Maboe, Mabunda, Vilakazi, Lakay, Meza.

Subs: Mweene, Makgalwa, Coetzee, Lebusa, Lukhubeni, Ngoma, Arendse.
