1. Denis Onyango, Sundowns, April 2019

    GOALKEEPER - Denis Onyango

    While the veteran goalkeeper conceded two goals away in Kinshasa, he has kept six clean sheets in the Premier Soccer League.

    Despite being breached in Africa, that does not take away his experience which could come handy on Sunday.

    LEFT-BACK - Lyle Lakay

    The 30-year-old was rested in the midweek fixture against Golden Arrows which was the first time for him to miss a match this season. 

    He lasted the entire 90 minutes in the away leg against Maniema.

    RIGHT-BACK - Khuliso Mudau

    With Thapelo Morena back from injury, Mudau has upped his game.

    He was named Man-of-the-Match against Arrows, in a performance meant to shut out Morena from reclaiming the right-back position.

  4. Mosa Lebusa, Mamelodi Sundowns, May 2021

    CENTRE-BACK - Mosa Lebusa

    Lebusa made an error which gifted Maniema one of their two goals in the away leg but that does not take away his qualities.

    CENTRE-BACK - Rushine De Reuck

    The defender missed the trip to Kinshasa as well as the game against Arrows but is back from injury.

    In his absence, Sundowns' central defensive pairing appeared shaky and conceded twice away at Maniema and was were lucky to escape unhurt in the win over Abafana Bas'thende.

    CENTRAL MIDFIELDER - Andile Jali

    This is a player who is getting better and better with age.

    The 31-year-old's experience is something Sundowns have been enjoying in recent games.

    CENTRAL MIDFIELDER - Rivaldo Coetzee

    Coetzee was absent in the trip to Arrows and his return is expected to add more stability in the middle of the park.

    This is a player who combines well with Jali in terms of breaking the opponents' attack as well as launching Sundowns' raids.

    ATTACKING MIDFIELDER - Themba Zwane

    Zwane grabbed a brace in the away leg in Kinshasa and his goals could prove crucial on Sunday.

    RIGHT FORWARD - Gaston Sirino

    The Uruguayan has started four games across all competitions this season while featuring in seven matches.

    After starting and his goal making the difference against Arrows, Sirino is almost sure to be in the line-up on Sunday.

    LEFT FORWARD - Thabiso Kutumela

    Kutumela arrived and immediately made himself a regular.

    He will be looking to score his first continental goal for the Brazilians.

    CENTRE-FORWARD - Peter Shalulile

    The Namibian striker has seven goals in all competitions this season but has not scored in the last two games. 

    That challenges him to pick himself up against Maniema at home.
