Mamelodi Sundowns take on Maritzburg United in the PSL at the Lucas Moripe Stadium on Friday. Kick off is at 18:00 South African time.
Sundowns have been given a reprieve for their title bid, after log leaders Kaizer Chiefs were stunned by Bloemfontein Celtic earlier in the week. The Brazillians are still eight points adrift of Chiefs, but they have a game in hand.
It has been tough going for Pitso Mosimane’s charges since the PSL restarted. A goalless draw against Orlando Pirates opened their account followed by a 1-1 draw against Higlands Park.
Cape Town City FC then stunned the Brazillians in a 3-2 thriller in their last outing.
Maritzburg United have played just once match since the return of the PSL, losing 3-2 against Black Leopards.
There has been an odd number of goals in each of the last six games played by Maritzburg United, so it could be an entertaining evening, even if Sundowns have at times been sluggish in front of goal this season.
