JOHANNESBURG- Absa Premiership League leaders Mamelodi Sundowns will be looking to redeem their 3-1 Nedbank Cup semi-final defeat to Maritzburg United when they face the same opposition in a league encounter at the Harry Gwala Stadium on Wednesday night.

Victory for Masandawana could see them take an unassailable nine-point lead over Orlando Pirates depending on their result against Bidvest Wits at the simultaneous kick-off fixture at the Orlando Stadium.

Sundowns currently have 55 points and lead Pirates by six points who have 49 points from 27 games each.

It is a tricky encounter for Pitso Mosimane’s men who have already suffered a shock defeat at the hands of the high-flying Maritzburg just over 2 days ago.

Should Sundowns win, it would be their second league title in three seasons.

Kick-off at the Harry Gwala Stadium is at 19:30.
