GOAL predicts Masandawana's starting line-up ahead of their match against the Rockets at Mbombela Stadium on Wednesday

  • Kennedy Mweene, Mamelodi Sundowns, February 2022

    GOALKEEPER - Kennedy Mweene

    The Zambian legend was in top form as Sundowns stunned Al Ahly 1-0 in Egypt over the weekend and he is expected to keep his place in the team with Downs' number one keeper Denis Onyango out injured.

  • Khuliso Mudau, Mamelodi Sundowns, February 2022

    RIGHT-BACK - Khuliso Mudau

    The hard-running full-back's speed created problems for the Al Ahly defence when he overlapped and he will be keen to unsettle the Galaxy backline with his forward runs.

  • Lyle Lakay, Mamelodi Sundowns, February 2022

    LEFT-BACK - Lyle Lakay

    The attack-minded full-back was unlucky not to score against the Egyptian giants, but he did find the back of the net during Downs' last PSL game which was against Baroka FC on February 14 and he will be hoping to continue his scoring form in the local top flight.

  • Brian Mandela, Mamelodi Sundowns, February 2022

    CENTRAL DEFENDER - Brian Mandela

    The experienced centre back produced arguably his best performance as a Sundowns player against the African champions and he will likely be assigned to man-mark Galaxy's Nigerian hitman Augustine Chidi Kwem.

  • Grant Kekana, Mamelodi Sundowns, November 2021

    CENTRAL DEFENDER - Grant Kekana

    The 31-year-old defender is most likely to make his return to Masandawana's starting line-up with Rushine De Reuck suspended and Kekana will be keen to impress in order to reclaim his spot in the team.

  • Rivaldo Coetzee, Mamelodi Sundowns, August 2021

    CENTRAL MIDFIELDER - Rivaldo Coetzee

    Following his entertaining battle with Al Ahly's Aliou Dieng, Coetzee will now be up against Galaxy's midfield sensation Ethan Brooks, who tends to make late and dangerous runs into the opposition's box.

  • Haashim Domingo, Mamelodi Sundowns, February 2022

    CENTRAL MIDFIELDER - Haashim Domingo

    The Ajax Cape Town academy product caught the eye with his work rate and passing ability after replacing Andile Jali, who was injured, a few minutes after the restart against Al Ahly and he could be rewarded with a starting berth.

  • Themba Zwane, Mamelodi Sundowns, October 2021

    ATTACKING MIDFIELDER - Themba Zwane

    The 32-year-old playmaker, who was neutralised by Pitso Mosimane's Red Eagles which led to his substitution, will be determined to produce an improved performance against the Rockets.

  • Thapelo Morena, Mamelodi Sundowns, February 2022

    RIGHT FORWARD - Thapelo Morena

    The right-back-come-right winger was the hero for Masandawana against the North African giants as he came off the bench to snatch a late winning goal and he could be handed a starting berth as the Tshwane giants look to return to winning ways in the PSL.

  • Neo Maema, Mamelodi Sundowns, November 2021

    LEFT FORWARD - Neo Maema

    Having registered the joint-most assists (five) in the PSL for Downs this term, Maema could be recalled to the starting line-up - replacing Bradley Ralani, who was not at his best against Al Ahly.

  • Peter Shalulile, Mamelodi Sundowns, December 2021

    CENTRE FORWARD - Peter Shalulile

    The newly crowned South African Football Journalists' Association Footballer of the Year provided the assist for Downs' goal against Red Eagles and he will now be eager to end his five-match goal drought.
