Both teams are not involved in this year's MTN8 and have decided to use the weekend to fine-tune their tactics in a friendly match that will be played at the luxurious Royal Marang Sports Complex in Phokeng.
Dikwena coach Cavin Johnson says he expects a strong challenge from Leopards, who have added new players to their side.
"Leopards had a great run in the CAF Confederation Cup and so have been playing up until fairly recently," Johnson says.
"We know they will be in good shape and that is what we want, a good, hard run-out for our players."
Former Orlando Pirates midfielder Benson Mhlongo, who signed a three-year contract with Dikwena, is the club's most prominent off-season acquisition on a list that also includes the likes of Thabani Mthembu, Mogakolodi Ngele, Bongani Nyathi, Joshua Sauls, Obert Moyo, and others.
Leopards, on the other hand, recently unveiled seven new signings – after having lost their main striker Kingston Nkhatha to rivals Kaizer Chiefs.
Platinum Stars will face Moroka Swallows in their opening League match at the Royal Bafokeng Stadium on Sunday, August 12, while Leopards open their season with a home game against Bloemfontein Celtic on August 11.
