Sundowns come into the match having played to a 1-1 draw at home to Golden Arrows in their last League outing. They have strung together a 10-game unbeaten streak.

The Tshwane side will be looking to improve on a disappointing home record so far this season: just two wins from nine matches.

The Brazilians are 10th on the log with 23 points from 19 matches.

Swallows suffered a first loss of 2013 when they went down 2-1 at home to AmaZulu on Saturday night.

The Soweto side has won just two matches away from home this season, suffering six defeats in the process. The Birds are 12th on the log with 22 points from 20 matches.

In head-to-head stats, Sundowns and Swallows have met in 55 League matches since 1985.

The Brazilians have 27 wins compared to 12 for the Birds, while 16 matches have been drawn. Downs have a solid home record against Swallows, with 15 wins from 26 matches down the years.

When the teams met earlier this season, the Birds claimed a 2-0 home triumph thanks to goals from Lerato Chabangu and Felix Obada.

Shame Sundowns. Natasha Tsiklas must be crying wherever she is. Its like when you sold some the care that you looked after it very well, but now it has been reduced to Skoroko nje.

As for Swallows the less i say the better!!! Useless Team.
