Historically, the Tshwane sides have struggled in the top eight competition over the years with Mamelodi Sunndowns - like neighbours SuperSport United - yet to win the title since it was renamed to the MTN8 Cup in 2008.
The Brazilians, though, won the title in 2007 - the final year under the sponsorship name: SAA Super Eight Cup.
In total; Sundowns have won the top eight crown on three previous occasions having also clinched the title in 1988 and 1990.
Last season's runners-up, Sundowns will be desperate to make amends having suffered a heavy defeat to Bidvest Wits - the same team that beat them to the league title - in a one sided final played at Mbombela Stadium.
