Mamelodi Sundowns will look to keep up their Absa Premiership title hopes when they host Baroka FC at Lucas Moripe Stadium on 10 May 2017, kick-off at 19h30.

Sundowns claimed their 16th league win of the season when they defeated Orlando Pirates 2-0 away on May 7.

The Tshwane side has claimed 28 points from 13 home matches this season.

The Brazilians are placed second on the Absa Premiership log with 54 points from 27 matches.

Baroka have gone three league matches without a win after they were held 1-1 at home by Bloemfontein Celtic on April 30.

The Limpopo side has claimed 12 points from as many away matches this season.

Bakgaga are placed 15th on the Absa Premiership log with 23 points from 26 matches.

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

That encounter took place earlier this season, with the Brazilians claiming a 1-0 away win in Polokwane.

Sundowns’ line-up from their 2-0 win over Pirates: Onyango, Morena, Nthethe, Madisha, Billiat, T. Zwane, Tau (Modise 63'), Mashaba (Ngconga 86'), Zakri (Laffor 77'), Kekana, Mabunda.

Baroka’s line-up from their 1-1 draw with Celtic: Masuluke, Mahashe, Kgoetyane, Shaku, Madubanya (Chauke 75’), Garcia (Zikalala 64’), Munetsi, Masenamela, Ogle (Letsoalo 58’), Kunene, Matlakala.
