Mamelodi Sundowns head coach Pitso Mosimane has underlined the threat posed by Zambian duo Augustine Mulenga and Justin Shonga ahead of this weekend's clash in Pretoria.
The Brazilians play host to Orlando Pirates in eagerly anticipated Absa Premiership match in the South African capital on Saturday afternoon.
Sundowns last defeat in the league came at the very same venue last season, with Mosimane's troops having gone 22 games unbeaten in the league since losing 3-1 to the Buccaneers back in January.
Pirates head into the clash on a 10-game unbeaten run in all competitions themselves, making for an appetising showdown in a game that is usually full of goals.
"They have the proper technique to score and they have power. They are typical Zambian players," Mosimane said about Shonga and Mulenga, with the latter having come close to joining the Brazilians before eventually opting for the Soweto giants.
"The way they play is typical Zambia style - that's how they play. That's how Zesco play; full of energy, movement."
