๐ŸŸกโšซ๏ธ Sundowns vs Pirates starting line-ups

South African champions Mamelodi Sundowns host Gauteng giant rivals Orlando Pirates in DStv post Christmas restart.

Sundowns welcome Pirates as log leaders with 18 points after eight games, but only lead the second-placed Moroka Swallows on goal difference.

Visitors Pirates are placed on fifth place with five points off the top and a game a hand. A win for Bucs will therefore lift Pirates to third place with a three-point trail and a game in hand.

Sundowns have made several surprise changes across the pitch, with a counter attacking selection including the likes of Rivaldo Coetzee, Mothobi Mvala and Thapelo Morena's speed - while Pirates have set a hardly changed team.

Full line-ups:

Sundowns: 14. D. Onyango, 25. Mudau, 7. Lakay, 3. Nascimento, 5. B. Onyango, 40. Coetzee, 41. Mvala, 33. Maboe, 27. Morena, 37. Modiba, 38. Shalulile.
