Premiership defending champions, Mamelodi Sundowns, are aiming to stretch their lead at the top of the log when they visit neighbours SuperSport United in a Pretoria derby on Saturday evening.
Mamelodi Sundowns are the champions of the MTN-8 this season. Sundowns beat a determined Cape Town City 3-2 on penalties after sudden death.
The Premier Soccer League will be using this weekend’s MTN-8 final as a pilot project to test whether football fans can gradually return to stadiums after a ban of almost two years due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Mamelodi Sundowns co-coach, Manqoba Mngqithi, says they will not rely on past records at home when they face DR Congo side, AS Maniema Union, in the return leg of their CAF Champions League preliminary round match.
