Steve Komphela's men are yet to lose match this year, and find themselves five points behind the Brazilians going into the weekend's encounter.
In fact, Chiefs are on a five-match unbeaten run, with a single draw and four wins in the process.
Sundowns on the other hand, have lost two of their four matches played so far this year, but they still top the standings with 34 points.
The encounter will also see Leonardo Castro face his former employers for the first time since leaving Chloorkop in December 2016.
Ramahlwe Mphahlele, another former Sundowns player, is also expected to make his long-awaiting return to action as Joseph Molangoane will be serving his two-match suspension.

Kick-off for the league match between Amakhosi and the Brazilians is scheduled for Saturday, 27th of January 2018 at 20h15.
