Sundowns & Sekhukhune Starting XIs Confirmed

Mamelodi Sundowns and Sekhukhune United have announced their starting line-ups for the DStv Premiership clash at Loftus Versfeld Stadium in the evening.

Sundowns will be playing their seventh game in a space of 20 days this evening.

They suffered a 1-0 defeat away from home at the hands of ES Tunis in the CAF Champions League semi-final first leg on Saturday.

Downs had little time to prepare for the clash against Babina Noko, and they will aim not to lose their unbeaten run in the DStv Premiership, which has been over a year now.

Sundowns currently sit 10 points ahead of second-placed Stellenbosch FC with three games in hand, and could extend that amount to 13 points.

United also have a good run, having last lost a league match in December against AmaZulu FC in Durban.

Babina Noko are pushing for a return to the CAF inter-club competition, as they are sitting fourth in the league table with 39 points after 24 matches.

Lehlohonolo Seema recently voted as the Coach of the Month for February and looks to carry his team to end the hoodoo of United losing to Sundowns.

These two sides faced each other five times, with Sundowns winning four of those clashes and one ending as a draw.

Here is how they line up:

Sundowns XI: D. Onyango, Maboe, B. Onyango, Lebusa, Coetzee, Mkhulise, Mendieta, Morena, Maema, Nku, Matthews

Subs: February, Mashego, Seabi, Mbule, Nkosi, Buthelezi, Mabena, Esquivel, Sirino

Sekhukhune XI: Sangare, Mobbie, Yamba, Cardoso, Tiwani, Mkhize, Webber, Mtshali, Mncube, Mokwana, Mntambo.

Subs: Mtsweni, Rikhotso, Ntiya-Ntiya, Carnell, Mokotjo, Mahlangu, Sifama, Masiya, Ohizu
