Mamelodi Sundowns will host Golden Arrows at the Loftus Stadium on Tuesday night as they look to continue their revival

Mamelodi Sundowns will be hoping to continue with the good run they have had since the arrival of former Bafana Bafana coach Pitso Mosimane.

They have gone unbeaten under Mosimane, but will be tested by the man who has always masterminded Sundowns downfall, and that is none other than Manqoba Mngqithi.

The Brazillians will go into Tuesday’s game high in confidence after their 3-0 win away to Maritzburg United in their previous game, and they will be looking to replicate the same performance against Golden Arrows.

On the other hand, Abafana Bes’thende visit Loftus with their tails between their legs, following their disappointing defeat they suffered at the hands of neighbours AmaZulu in the KZN Derby over the weekend.

Arrows haven’t been consistent in their last 6 games, winning 3 games and losing the same number of games. However Arrows have never suffered two consecutive defeats since last November, and that should be a worrying factor for Mosimane.

Sundowns go into Tuesday’s game occupying position 8 on the log with 22 points, while Arrows are 11th on the log with 19 points after 18 games.
