Mamelodi Sundowns have a few players still nursing injuries, although Pitso Mosimane will be hopeful for the return of at least one of them.
Sundowns are done with league action for the month of January, as they have two CAF Champions League fixtures lined up against Petro de Luanda and Wydad Casablanca.
However, Thapelo Morena may be at risk of missing Saturday’s clash after he was stretchered off against SuperSport United on Sunday afternoon.
In addition, Rivaldo Coetzee is still undergoing rehabilitation for his ankle, while Aubrey Ngoma is the latest player on the ankle injury list.
Mauricio Affonso is another player still undergoing hamstring rehabilitation according to Sundowns and it remains to be seen when he will make his return.
Head Coach Mosimane will want to have his squad at full strength for their final two group stage encounters, as they look to finish strong and maintain the top spot in the group.
Now, it remains to be seen whether the likes of Morena will be fit in time for the Brazilians’ trip to Luanda this weekend.
