SuperSport United will look to continue their strong form in the Absa Premiership when they host Baroka FC at Mbombela Stadium on 1 April 2017, kick-off at 15h00.

SuperSport have gone 19 league games undefeated after drawing 1-1 at Orlando Pirates on March 7.

The Tshwane side has claimed 21 points from nine home matches this season.

Matsatsantsa are placed third on the Absa Premiership log with 37 points from 20 matches.

Baroka’s winless streak in the league stands at 15 matches after they drew 2-2 at home to Kaizer Chiefs on March 18.

The Limpopo side has claimed eight points from nine away matches this season.

Bakgaga are placed 16th on the Absa Premiership log with 15 points from 21 matches.

In head-to-head stats, SuperSport and Baroka have met in just one previous top flight league match.

That encounter took place earlier this season, with the teams playing to a 1-1 draw in Polokwane.

SuperSport’s line-up from their 1-1 draw with Pirates: Pieterse, Boxall, Gould, Booysen, Bhasera, Furman, Letsholonyane (Morton 80''), Masango (Modiba 88'), Mnyamane, Brockie, Nkhatha.

Baroka’s line-up from their 2-2 draw with Chiefs: Masuluke, Mapheto, Matlakala, Mahashe, Shaku, Ravhuhali, Madubanya (Chauke 59’), Motshegwa (Moeti 76’), Kgaswane, Matloga, Letsoalo (Kunene 60’).
