Sundowns & Chippa Starting XIs Confirmed

Mamelodi Sundowns and Chippa United have confirmed their starting line-ups for the DStv Premiership encounter at Lucas Moripe Stadium this evening.

Sundowns could take their unbeaten league run to 41 matches this evening when they face the Chilli Boys after last losing a league match back in September 2022.

The defending league champions have only conceded four goals in the last 16 league matches.

Downs couldn’t play midweek after their game with TS Galaxy was postponed due to the Galaxy Bus being involved in an accident.

Meanwhile, the Chilli Boys are still unbeaten under their new co-coaches of Kwanele Kopo and Thabo September, while previous coach Morgan Mammila is the technical director. The Eastern Cape-based side have won two and drawn two in 2024.

They will look to end Sundowns unbeaten league run this evening and possibly get into the top eight.

These two sides have faced each other 27 times, with Sundowns wing 17 matches, and Chippa won two, while eight matches ended in draws.

Here is how they line up:

Sundowns XI: Williams, Mdunyelwa, Lunga, Lebusa, Modiba, Mokoena, Zungu, Allende, Lorch, Ribeiro, Shalulile

Subs: D. Onyango, Kekana, Morena, Mbule, Maboe, Matthews, Zwane, Sirino, Esquivel

Chippa Utd XI: tbc.
