Sundowns have returned from their tough away fixture in Morocco and have now begun to prepare for their rescheduled Absa Premiership match against Stellenbosch FC at Loftus on Wednesday. The match which was initially supposed to be played away will now be played at home due to Sundowns’ fixture congestion.
Downs are coming off the back of two consecutive CAF Champions League group stage games against Petro de Luanda of Angola and Wydad AC of Morocco.
Masandawana are currently in the midst of a hectic December schedule and they head into the fixture facing a well-rested Stellenbosch side who have not featured in any action since the end of November.
Sundowns will look to continue their recent good run of form, with three wins and one draw in their last four games in all competitions. Wednesday’s opponents Stellenbosch come into the game looking to end a run of four games without a victory, with their most recent outing ending in a 1-1 draw with SuperSport United.
Downs strength in depth will be called upon, with the Telkom Knockout final against Maritzburg United just around the corner.
