Mamelodi Sundowns Form
Sundowns are in imperious form with the side 23 matches unbeaten and with eight wins in a row across all competitions. They sit top of the PSL table with a one point lead over the two teams below them but with at least three matches in hand.
Mamelodi Sundowns have only had one league match in the last six weeks as they beat Stellenbosch 3-2 at home in the Nedbank Cup, beat Al Hilal Omdurman 2-1 at home in the CAF Champions League and Baroka 2-0 at home in the PSL.
A 5-1 win at Belouizdad followed and a 2-1 win away at TP Mazembe. In their last match, Sundowns beat Polokwane City 4-0 in the Nedbank Cup having been four goals up after 28 minutes and then taking their foot off the gas.
Mamelodi Sundowns Injuries & Team News
Sundowns rested numerous players in the Nedbank Cup but all of goalkeeper Denis Onyango, midfielders Rivaldo Coetzee and Themba Zwane and forward Gaston Sirino should return to the XI.
The only real injuries that the coaching team have to worry about are over captain Hlompho Kekana in midfield and Brian Onyango in defence.
