Ricardo Nascimento picked up a red card booking during the Brazilians’ league clash against Highlands Park on August 22, which saw the player face a two-game suspension.

Masandawana was without the services of the Brazilian in both legs of the MTN8 semi-final against Cape Town City, however, will make his return to action this weekend.

Sundowns will travel away to KwaZulu-Natal where they will lock horns with AmaZulu FC and look to get back to winning ways after being knocked out of two competitions, the 2018 MTN8 and the CAF Champions League. 

Nascimento will be available for selection this weekend, with Head Coach Pitso Mosimane set to make more changes compared to the squad he fielded in the team’s previous encounter.  

The 31-year-old centre-back recently put pen to paper on a new three-year deal with Sundowns, indicating that the technical team views the player as one who plays an integral role in the defensive setup.
