Goal takes a look at Masandawana's possible starting XI ahead of their clash with the Citizens on Saturday

  • Denis Onyango, Mamelodi Sundowns, November 2020

    GOALKEEPER - Denis Onyango

    The former SuperSport United star is one of the most decorated goalkeepers in the history of the PSL having won a record seven league titles. 

    Onyango will be hoping to add another winner's medal to his cabinet. 

  • Khuliso Mudau, Mamelodi Sundowns, November 2020

    RIGHT-BACK - Khuliso Mudau

    The Limpopo-born full-back has established himself as Sundowns' first-choice right-back ahead of Thapelo Morena.

    Mudau will be bracing himself for a battle with the troublesome Bradley Ralani.

  • Lyle Lakay, Mamelodi Sundowns, November 2020

    LEFT-BACK - Lyle Lakay

    The Cape Town-born full-back has been outstanding this season having netted against DR Congo's AS Maniema Union last weekend.

    Lakay will be looking to haunt City by playing a key role in helping Masandawana clinch the MTN8 title.

  • Mosa Lebusa, Mamelodi Sundowns, May 2021

    CENTRE BACK - Mosa Lebusa

    The experienced defender is one of the few Sundowns players who have won the MTN8 trophy.

    Having lifted the trophy with the now-defunct Ajax Cape Town in 2015, Lebusa will be eager to win the title for the second time.

  • Grant Kekana, Mamelodi Sundowns, August 2021

    CENTRE BACK - Grant Kekana

    The versatile defender has proved to be a reliable player for the Tshwane giants having started against Maniema in the absence of Rushine De Reuck.

    Kekana, who won two MTN8 titles with SuperSport, could get the nod ahead of De Reuck due to his experience in major cup finals. 

  • Rivaldo Coetzee, Mamelodi Sundowns, August 2021

    CENTRAL MIDFIELDER - Rivaldo Coetzee

    The 24-year-old player has been one of Masandawana's most consistent players thus far this season.

    Coetzee is most likely to be up against City's experienced playmaker Mpho Makola in midfield.

  • Andile Jali, Mamelodi Sundowns, September 2021

    CENTRAL MIDFIELDER - Andile Jali

    The former Orlando Pirates star is the real glue that holds this Sundowns team together in midfield.

    Jali will be hoping to lift the MTN8 trophy for the third time having won it twice with Pirates.

  • Themba Zwane, Mamelodi Sundowns, October 2021

    ATTACKING MIDFIELDER - Themba Zwane

    The two-time PSL Midfielder of the Season has been brilliant in his new role as the link between Downs' midfield and attack.

    Zwane has the ability to single-handedly inspire Masandawana to a win at Moses Mabhida Stadium. 

  • Sibusiso Vilakazi, Mamelodi Sundowns, May 2021

    LEFT FORWARD - Sibusiso Vilakazi

    The experienced attacker's good form has earned a recall to the Downs starting line-up in recent weeks. 

    This will be another opportunity for Vilakazi to prove that he deserves to start games for the PSL champions. 

  • Thabiso Kutumela Sundowns

    RIGHT FORWARD - Thabiso Kutumela

    The former Orlando Pirates striker has impressed with his work rate and ability to create chances for his teammates.

    Kutumela will be looking to create problems for City defence.  

  • Peter Shalulile, Mamelodi Sundowns, December 2020

    CENTRE FORWARD - Peter Shalulile

    The lethal forward ended his two-match goal drought for Masandawana when he netted against Maniema.

    Shalulile will be confident of scoring when he faces City, who conceded three goals in their last match which was a PSL clash with Lamontville Golden Arrows last weekend.
