GOAL takes a look at the reigning PSL champions' possible starting line-up as they look to continue their unbeaten record this term.

  • Kennedy Mweene, Mamelodi Sundowns, May 2021

    GOALKEEPER - Kennedy Mweene

    The former Free State Stars captain is expected to keep his place in the Downs starting line-up with Denis Onyango still suspended.

    Mweene conceded his first goal of the season in the league against Stellenbosch FC over the weekend.

  • Thapelo Morena of Mamelodi Sundowns challenged by Sipho Mbule of Supersport United.

    RIGHT-BACK - Thapelo Morena

    The Bafana Bafana international made a good impact after replacing an injured Khuliso Mudau at half-time against Stellenbosch.

    Morena, who was involved in the build-up to Downs' equalising goal, might be rewarded with a starting berth.

  • Lyle Lakay, Mamelodi Sundowns, November 2020

    LEFT-BACK - Lyle Lakay

    The free-kick specialist rescued a point for Sundowns over the weekend as he grabbed a second-half goal in the 1-1 draw.

    It was Lakay's first league goal of the current campaign having scored four times in the competition last term.

  • Mosa Lebusa of Mamelodi Sundowns.

    CENTRAL DEFENDER - Mosa Lebusa

    The Welkom-born defender will be up against his Bafana temmate Victor Letsoalo, who is one of the most feared strikers in the PSL.

    Having proved to be error-ridden this term, Lebusa cannot afford to make any mistakes when marking the Royal AM hitman.

  • Grant Kekana, Mamelodi Sundowns, November 2021

    CENTRAL DEFENDER - Grant Kekana

    The consistent defender was one of Downs' better players in their clash with Stellies.

    Kekana will be hoping to continue his good form for Masandawana against the PSL debutants.

  • Mothobi Mvala of Mamelodi Sundowns.

    CENTRAL MIDFIELDER - Mothobi Mvala

    The Bafana international might be recalled to the starting line-up with Rivaldo Coetzee suspended.

    Mvala's tackling and passing abilities will be important against Royal AM.

  • Andile Jali, Mamelodi Sundowns, September 2021


    The experienced midfield maestro will most likely come face to face in Royal AM's hardman Lantshane Phalane.

    It would be an interesting battle between two players, who are not afraid to make strong tackles.

  • Themba Zwane, Mamelodi Sundowns, October 2021


    The former Mpumalanga Black Aces playmaker has blown hot and cold this season.

    However, Zwane remains a key member of the Downs team as he has the ability to single handedly inspire the Tshwane giants to a win.

  • Thabiso Kutumela, Mamelodi Sundowns, December 2021

    LEFT FORWARD - Thabiso Kutumela

    The 2015/16 National First Division Golden Boot winner was arguably Downs' best attacker against Stellies and he grabbed an assist.

    Kutumela, who is now a regular for the Tshwane giants, will be looking to score his second league goal for Masandawana.

  • Kermit Erasmus of Mamelodi Sundowns challenged by Teboho Mokoena of Supersport United.

    RIGHT FORWARD - Kermit Erasmus

    The well-travelled marksman was introduced as a substitute against Stellies and he became a threat to the hosts' defence, while also coming close to scoring.

    Erasmus might be handed his fourth start of the season in the league on Wednesday.

  • Peter Shalulile, Mamelodi Sundowns, December 2021

    CENTRE FORWARD - Peter Shalulile

    The current PSL top scorer has failed to score in his last two league matches.

    This will make Shalulile even more dangerous when faces a Royal AM defence which has kept a clean sheet in their last two league games.
