Sundowns trail the Buccaneers by six points, but the former has three games in hand - and they will have to win at least two and draw one in their next three league games to return to the top of the standings.
Standing in front of them in their quest to reclaim their top spot is Matsatsantsa, whom they face in Tshwane on Wednesday night.
The Brazilians have dominated this fixture in the past, but given the unpredictability of the majority of the teams this season, they should definitely not take Kaitano Tembo's side for granted.
Sundowns are currently placed second on the log with 44 points from 24 games, while Matsatsantsa are placed sixth with 40 points after 25 league games.
Mathematically, SuperSport United are still in with a chance to win the league title, but they will need other results to go their way in order to win their first PSL title since 2010.
WHEN IS THE TSHWANE DERBY?
The Tshwane Derby will kick off at 19h30 on Wednesday, the 17th of April 2019.
