Mamelodi Sundowns face pressure. Both Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates are into the Telkom Knockout quarter-finals - so Kabo Yellow can’t miss the train…
So we expect a strong Sundowns line up and a ruthless performance to join the Soweto giants in the TKO last eight.
While Sundowns have Phakamani Mahlambi and Mauricio Affonso back from the injury table, three other players face long-term illness. The club will certainly be without Oupa Manyisa, Emmailano Tade and Anthony Laffor.
Here’s our predicted line-up for today’s TKO action:
Onyango, Ngcongca, Lebusa, Arendse, Langerman, Kekana, Coetzee, Zwane, Sirino, Morena, Meza.
Subs: Pieterse, Lakay, Coetzee, Mahlambi, Vilakazi, Maboe.
Last five results:
- Sundowns 0-2 AmaZulu
- AmaZulu 3-3 Sundowns
- AmaZulu 1-3 Sundowns
- Sundowns 1-2 AmaZulu
- AmaZulu 0-1 Sundowns.
The last 16 calsh is set for the Lucas Moripe Stadium from 15:00.
