Absa Premiership champions Mamelodi Sundowns face a wounded Maritzburg United in Pretoria tonight.
Sundowns also have another chance to close in on Kaizer Chiefs, after Amakhosi took a shock 3-2 loss to Bloemfontein Celtic on Wednesday. A win for Kabo Yellow will cut Chiefs’ lead to three points, while Amakhosi will face a hot Stellenbosch FC on Sunday.
Maritzburg United, one of the surprise teams of the season, had a bad post lockdown start after a shock 3-2 loss to Black Leopards last weekend. We can therefore expect a few changes.
As for Sundowns, coach Pitso Mosimane faces big pressure to start Andile Jali after the former Orlando Pirates man only managed substitute appearances in the last four games.
Maritzburg: Ofori, Shandu, De Reuck, Allie, Morgan, Timm, Buchanan, Tlolane, Classen, Kutumela, Moseasmedi.
Sundowns: Onyango, Lukhubeni, Nascimento, Madisha, Langerman, Jali, Kekana, Lakay, Vilakazi, Zwane, Sirino.
Match kick is 18:00 at the Lucas Moripe Stadium, with the live broadcast coming from 204.
