Sundowns extended their winning run to ten matches after edging Chippa United 2-1 last Tuesday and currently top the table by 11 points.
Surprisingly enough, the Brazilians' last defeat came against SuperSport United in their first round meeting in September last year.
Matsatsantsa, meanwhile, saw their six-game unbeaten run come to an end after going down 2-1 against Golden Arrows just over a week ago.
