After inconsistent results by their standards in the early stages, Sundowns eventually won back-to-back league games for the first time after beating Chippa United and Golden Arrows.

Subsequently, the Brazilians opened a two-point lead at the top of the table and can move five points clear of Orlando Pirates, who are not in action this weekend.

In contrast to their bright start to the season, AmaZulu are in a slump after they suffered a second defeat in three matches with a 2-1 loss to the Chilli Boys last weekend.

Usuthu find themselves in sixth position on the table with 11 points, five points behind Sundowns.

The sides cancelled each other out in their meetings last season, with a win apiece by a 1-0 scoreline, although Usuthu were one only three teams to defeat Sundowns in the league last campaign.

Here's how they line up:

Mamelodi Sundowns: Williams, Ngobeni, Mudau, Kekana, De Reuck, Jali, Mbule, Mokoena, Zwane, Saavedra, Shalulile

Subs: Pieterse, Morena, Mashego, Mailula, Allende, Mkhulise, Lebusa, Zungu, Meama

AmaZulu: Mothwa, Gumede, Hanamub, Zulu, Khumalo, Buchanan, Makhaula, Maluleka, Mukumela, Mhango, Zuma

Subs: Amonome, Mabiliso, Mgwazela, Mphahlele, Malepe, Brooks, Ceesay, Magaqa, Kunene
