Defending PSL champions Mamelodi Sundowns commence their league title defense with a mouthwatering titanic clash against cross city rivals Kaizer Chiefs at Loftus Versfeld Stadium on Saturday evening.
Masandawana are fresh from a morale-boosting 2-1 CAF Champions League win over AS Togo-Port and will be eager to pick up where they left off.
Amakhosi on the other hand are yet to find their gear after narrowly losing 1-0 to Cape Town City in the Mpumalanga Cultural Experience Cup last weekend, which came at the back of a 2-1 loss against Sundowns in the Shell Helix Ultra Cup.
A plus for the Glamour Boys is that newly appointed head coach Giovanni Solinas has finally been granted his work permit and will be on the bench for the visiting side.
Uruguayan international Gaston Sirino will be the man to watch after his dazzling performance for Sundowns in their champions league tie while Chiefs will rely heavily on Khama Billiat to come up with something special against his former side.
Last season the Naturena outfit took four points from Sundowns, winning the first tie 2-1 in Tshwane before both sides could only settle for a 0-0 stalemate at FNB Stadium.
