Kaizer Chiefs would be hoping to replicate Tuesday's performance against Maritzburg United when they collide with Mamelodi Sundowns in Saturday's Premier Soccer League match at Loftus Versfeld.

Buoyed by the 3-0 win over the Team of Choice, Chiefs are high in confidence going into the Loftus Versfeld contest.

They come up against a deflated Sundowns who suffered a 1-0 home defeat to TS Galaxy on Wednesday.

This is how Chiefs coach Arthur Zwane has lined up his team to do battle against the Brazilians.
