Teams: Mamelodi Sundowns v Maritzburg United

Mamelodi Sundowns will look to keep their Absa Premiership title hopes alive when they host Maritzburg United this evening.
The Brazilians missed the chance to go top of the table last week, after they drew 2-2 with relegation-threatened Baroka FC in a game where they lead 2-0.
Sundowns currently occupy second spot in the table, three points behind Bidvets Wits and will need to secure three points in order to keep their title charge alive.
Maritzburg, meanwhile, maintained their top eight spot despite dropping points in their 0-0 draw with Platinum Stars in their league outing.
Fadlu David's charges occupy seventh position, one point ahead of Golden Arrows and Orlando Pirates.
These two sides could not be separated in their last league meeting, as they played out goalless draw at the Harry Gwala Stadium.
Here's how they line up:
Sundowns: 1. Mweene, 4. Langerman, 27. Morena, 29. Soumahoro, 32. Madisha, 10. Modise, 13. Mabunda, 33. Billiat, 18. Zwane, 8. Kekana, 22. Tau.
Maritzburg: 30. Vries, 16. Fransman, 5. Weidlich, 2. Onyango, 13. Makaringe, 19. Rusike, 37. Ndlovu, 26. Shandu, 15. Maboe, 29. Lentjies, 28. Mekoa.
