GOAL predicts the reigning PSL champions' starting line-up ahead of their clash with the top flight debutants

  • Denis Onyango, Mamelodi Sundowns, October 2021

    GOALKEEPER - Denis Onyango

    The Sundowns club captain will be keen to make amends for his howler which led to SuperSport United equalising on Wednesday.

    Onyango is still sitting at the top of the league's clean sheet chart with seven clean sheets.

  • Khuliso Mudau, Mamelodi Sundowns, May 2021

    RIGHT-BACK - Khuliso Mudau

    The 26-year-old has become a consistent performer in the right-back position for Masandawana.

    Mudau is now the Tshwane giants' first-choice right-back.

  • Lyle Lakay, Mamelodi Sundowns, November 2020

    LEFT-BACK - Lyle Lakay

    The experienced full-back has been in and out of the Downs starting line-up in recent matches.

    However, Lakay is most likely to keep his place in the team with Divine Lunga out injured.

  • Grant Kekana, Mamelodi Sundowns, November 2021

    CENTRAL DEFENDER - Grant Kekana

    The Univerity of Pretoria academy product has arguably been Downs' best central defender thus far this season.

    Kekana might be assigned to man-mark Sekhukhune's free-scoring striker Chibuike Ohizu, who has impressed this term.

  • Rushine De Reuck, Mamelodi Sundowns, March 2021

    CENTRAL DEFENDER - Rushine De Reuck

    The Bafana Bafana international could be recalled to the starting line-up against an in-form Sekhukhune side.

    Mosa Lebusa, who has been inconsistent this term, struggled defensively against SuperSport and he might be replaced by De Reuck in the team.

  • Andile Jali, Mamelodi Sundowns, September 2021


    The accomplished midfielder is likely to operate in a deeper role in midfield with Rivaldo Coetzee out injured once again.

    Jali's tackling and ball-winning abilities wilI be important as he protects the Downs defence.

  • Haashim Domingo, Mamelodi Sundowns, November 2020

    CENTRAL MIDFIELDER - Haashim Domingo

    The Ajax Cape Town academy graduate has been enjoying regular game time, but he is yet to impress.

    Domingo will be determined to prove why he has been starting games ahead of Mothobi Mvala.

  • Themba Zwane, Mamelodi Sundowns, October 2021


    The experienced attacking midfielder is Sundowns' chief ochestrator having grabbed an assist against SuperSport.

    Zwane will be looking to use his mesmerising dribbling skills and incisive passes to unsettle Babina Noko's defence.

  • Gaston Sirino, Mamelodi Sundowns

    RIGHT FORWARD - Gaston Sirino

    The Uruguayan attacker might be recalled to the starting line-up - replacing Pavol Safranko, who was ineffective in the Tshwane Derby in midweek.

    Sirino's unpredictable movement and silky skills might cause problems for the Sekhukhune defence.

  • Neo Maema, Mamelodi Sundowns, November 2021

    LEFT FORWARD - Neo Maema

    The talented attacker has arguably been Sundowns' best signing from the last transfer window.

    Maema grabbed a goal and an assist in the Tshwane Derby as he continues to enjoy his football at the Chloorkop-based side.

  • Peter Shalulile, Mamelodi Sundowns, November 2021

    CENTRE FORWARD - Peter Shalulile

    The in-form marksman continued his scoring form by hitting the back of the net in midweek.

    Shalulile is currently sitting at the top of the league's scoring charts with nine goals and he will be hoping to add to his tally.
