Starting XI: Maritzburg v Sundowns

Absa Premiership
 
Teams: Maritzburg United v Mamelodi Sundowns
 
Date: 14 September 2016
 
Venue: Harry Gwala Stadium
 
Defending Absa Premiership champions Mamelodi Sundowns will get their league campaign underway against Maritzburg United on Wednesday.
 
 
Pitso Mosimane's charges have had the start of their title defence delayed due to their continental commitments.
 
The Brazilians completed a double over Maritzburg last season, beating them 3-0 and 3-2 in Tshwane and Pietermaritzburg respectively.
 
Meanwhile, the Team of Choice made the ideal start to their league campaign as they beat Bloemfontein Celtic 1-0 away from home.
 
United will be hoping to turn their record against Sundowns around, having beaten them only three times in their last 20 league encounters.
 
 
Here's how they line up:
 
Maritzburg: 30 Vries, 19 Mogapi, 2 Onyango, 5 Weidlich, 16 Fransman, 6 Moyo, 10 Zulu, 29 Lentjies, 15 Nale, 19 Rusike, 28 Mekoa
 
Sundowns: 1 Mweene, 2 Nthethe, 16 Nascimento, 29 Soumahoro, 32 Madisha, 15 Mohomi, 23 Julies, 27 Morena, 11 Vilakazi, 18 Zwane, 24 Zakri
