Sundowns & Richards Bay Starting XIs Confirmed

Mamelodi Sundowns and Richards Bay FC have announced their starting line-ups for the DStv Premiership clash at FNB Stadium this evening.

Sundowns will return to the DStv Premiership action tonight when they face Natal Richboyz, just three days ahead of their crucial CAF Champions League quarter-final second leg against Young Africans.

Masandawana remain at the top of the table with 46 points from 18 matches, and will hope to extend their unbeaten run.

The defending DStv Premiership champions haven’t lost a league match since September 2022 and still have a chance to finish the season with three trophies.

On the other side, Bay aim to end their five-match winless run in all competitions and also survive relegation.

The KwaZulu-Natal-based side are sitting 15th in the league, just two points above Cape Town Spurs.

These two sides faced each other five times with Sundowns winning all of the fixtures and Bay yet to win. Downs scored 11 goals and conceded two in the fixture.

Here is how they line up:

Sundowns XI: Onyango, Mdunyelwa, Mashego, Mvala, Aubaas, Mkhulise, Maboe, Mbule, Esquivel, Matthews, Sirino

February, B. Onyango, De Reuck, Seabi, Nkosi, Maema, Mabena, Mendieta, Nku

Richards Bay XI: Magoola, Mabuya, Ndaba, Mthethwa, Mcineka, Dlamini, Mhlongo, Makhubela, Myaba, Barns, Ntsundwana

Subs: Jacobs, Dube, Malepe, Figureido, Gumede, Komane, Mbuthuma, Mthembu, Mabua
