United To Get Back On Track
Manchester United will host AFC Bournemouth in an EPL fixture on Wednesday, December 13. The Red Devils have just come off from a defeat in the Manchester Derby which took place over the past weekend. Manager Jose Mourinho will be hoping that his side picks up their form as they face 14th place Bournemouth.
Mamelodi Sundowns will go head-to-head against Bloemfontein Celtic on Saturday, December 16. Both teams are in fine form and will surely put up a tough battle to gain three points on the day.

The Citizen’s derby win ended United’s 40-game unbeaten home run and Jose Mourinho’s side are now trailing the log leaders by 11 points.

Mamelodi Sundowns v Bloemfontein Celtic (Premier Soccer League)
League Rankings: Sundowns 1st & Bloem Celtic 4th
Useful facts: High-flying Mamelodi Sundowns will look to continue their impressive form when they welcome in-form Bloem Celtic. The Brazilians, like cross-town rivals SuperSport United, have played fewer games than other teams in the PSL and seem to be using their chances to full advantage. They sit atop the log having played 11 games and registered seven wins. They will hope to go into the Christmas break still perched at the top. However, it will not be a stroll in the park for Masandawana as they face a confident Siwelele side fresh from a 3-0 Free State derby victory over Free State Stars last weekend, earning themselves three crucial points and a move to the fourth spot on the log standings.
