After nearly one month away from DStv Premiership action, Mamelodi Sundowns turn their focus to the league as they gear up to face Stellenbosch FC. Masandawana currently sit on top of the standings after sixteen games with a total of thirty-six points. The hosts are currently placed on position nine with twenty-one points. The last time the two sides met was in early February in the Nedbank Cup where it took one hundred and twenty minutes to separate the two sides as The Brazilians won 3-2.
“We have tried to regenerate the group as we tried to rotate a bit. The good thing is the players that got an opportunity against Polokwane City did not let themselves down and did not let the team down. They did well to represent the club moving closer to the objectives, we are in a good space and we are confident that we are ready for Stellenbosch”, said Coach Rulani Mokwena.
In the past four meetings between the two sides in all competitions, more than twelve goals have been scored and that shows what type of game will be played tomorrow at the Danie Craven Stadium.
“The good thing about Stellenbosch is they don’t park the bus, they don’t sit off the ball. They play very openly, it should be another entertaining game. They have good clear principles of play, particular on their right-hand side, which is where they are more fluid. Their build-up scheme with their back three with Lee Langeveldt. We know what to expect as we just played them recently, we should be able to find the right solutions for the match”, concluded Coach Rulani Mokwena.
The match kicks-off at 13:00 and will be played at the Danie Craven Stadium.
