Mamelodi Sundowns vs Maritzburg United Predictions


Sundowns had a slight dip in form recently but that was down to missing star striker Peter Shalulile. When he returned against Pirates, he scored the team won 3-0. 

Maritzburg are proving hard to beat with one loss in nine matches but they struggle on the road. I am tipping Sundowns to get the win they need to extend their lead at the top of the PSL.

Mamelodi Sundowns Injuries & Team News


Sundowns welcomed back Peter Shalulile up front against Pirates and he should start again. Kermit Erasmus may be rotated due to his injury record so Gift Motupa could get an opportunity.

Gaston Sirino remains absent in midfield and Rushine De Reuck is doubtful in central defence.
