Mamelodi Sundowns will be hoping to further stretch their lead at the top of the DStv Premiership standings when they take on Stellenbosch FC at the Danie Craven Stadium on Saturday.
The Brazilians remain the only unbeaten side in the DStv Premiership after 12 matches following their 2-0 win over Sekhukhune United at ABSA Tuks Stadium last Saturday thanks to goals from Neo Maema and Themba Zwane on either side of the half-time break.
Stellies have now suffered two consecutive defeats in the DStv Premiership following their narrow 1-0 defeat to Royal AM at the Chatsworth Stadium in Durban last Sunday afternoon through a second-half strike from Tebogo Potsane, which proved the difference between these two teams.
Sundowns sit firmly at the top of the table with 30 points, eight points clear of second-placed Kaizer Chiefs after winning nine games and only drawing three from 12 matches.
Meanwhile, Stellenbosch are in fourth position in the league standings with 21 points, nine points behind the log leaders, having conceded two defeats, played out to six draws and claiming five wins in 13 matches.
In the last meeting between the two teams, Sundowns managed to edge Stellies 2-1 at the Danie Craven Stadium when Gaston Sirino and Peter Shalulile cancelled out Stanley Dimgba’s 33rd-minute opener.
Possible Starting Lineups:
Stellenbosch FC: Sage Stephens, Mogamad De Goede, Sibusiso Mthethwa, Marc Van Heerden, Dean David van Rooyen, Nathan Sinkala, Ibraheem Jabaar, Judas Moseamedi, Junior Mendieta, Ahley Du Preez.
Mamelodi Sundowns: Kennedy Mweene, Lyle Lakay, Mosa Lebusa, Hlompho Kekana, Khuliso Mudau, Andile Jali, Haashim Domingo, Neo Maema, Themba Zwane, Peter Shalulile, Pavol Safranko.
