Absa Premiership Starting XI: City v Sundowns

Mamelodi Sundowns

Teams: Cape Town City – Mamelodi Sundowns

Date:  05 March 2019

Venue: Athlone Stadium

Cape Town City and Mamelodi Sundowns meet for the second time within the space of a week in an Absa Premiership clash on Tuesday.

Kickoff is at 7:30pm.

The two played out a blistering five-goal affair last week, which Sundowns bagged 3-2 to ascend top spot. 

A frustrating goalless draw with Bloemfontein Celtic followed, while City staged a dramatic second half performance to squash Bidvest Wits from a 2-0 halftime deficit.

In hindsight, City helped their counterparts to remain abreast while boosting their own chances to title supremacy.

Masandawana are on 40 points from 21 matches played, with City having played a game more lying in fifth place on 36 points and can go  second, one point of top spot with a win.

Sundowns welcome the return of Wayne Arendse from a two-match suspension picked up against Wits recently.
