SL Team Of The Week
Soccer Laduma brings you the country's most prestigious and authoritative 'Team of the Week'!
This week's selection is based on performances from the past weekend's Absa Premiership Round Two of fixtures and the CAF Confederation Cup Group B stage tie.
Kaizer Chiefs and Mamelodi Sundowns led huge league wins over their respective opponents this past weekend. The Amakhosi put four past a hapless Free State Stars outfit without a reply, while the Brazilians claimed a 4-2 win over Bidvest Wits.
The University of Pretoria were perhaps the biggest surprise winners after hammering Polokwane City 3-0. Ajax Cape Town came from behind in their tie in the Mother City to clinch a 3-1 win over Maritzburg United.
Orlando Pirates once again did South Africa proud by reaching the last four of the CAF Confederation Cup following their 2-0 victory over AC Leopards De Dolisie.
The team will always be set up in a standard 4-4-2 formation, selected by Soccer Laduma's team of journalists.
Simply put, the 'Team of the Week' reflects the best 11 players that competed during the weekly cycle and is published in the latest Soccer Laduma, out every Wednesday.
