Amakhosi finished 2018 on a high after winning three consecutive games under coach Ernst Middendorp.
Sundowns, on the other hand, are unbeaten in the league this season, meaning it's going to be a very tough encounter for both teams.
For Chiefs, a win over Sundowns would see them jump to the fifth position on the log, while Pitso Mosimane's men would edge closer to the top with a win at the Calabash.
Matches between Chiefs and Sundowns have proven to be exciting, with the Soweto giants enjoying an upper hand in the last 34 league meetings.
Chiefs won 14 to Sundowns' 11 while nine of those 34 matches ended in draws.
Surprisingly though, the Brazilians have outscored Amakhosi in those matches (35 goals to 33 for Chiefs) - something which they will bank on come matchday.
WHEN IS THE MATCH?
The Soweto Derby will kick off at 15h30 on Saturday, the 05 of January 2018.
