The Team of Choice began the second half of the PSL season with a goalless draw against basement side AmaZulu on Tuesday, the same result the Brazilians played out in their clash against Kaizer Chiefs.

The stalemate left United fifth in the standings with 25 points, 12 behind leaders Orlando Pirates, while Sundowns are in 11th, six points above the relegation zone.

The Tshwane giants are, however, unbeaten in their last eight league matches following Pitso Mosimane's appointment as head coach late last year, and will be looking to keep that run going when they travel to Kwa-Zulu Natal.

In team news, Ayanda Ndlovu and Ruben Cloete should return for the hosts after missing the tie against Usuthu through suspension, while Byron Hendricks will have to tread carefully as he is one booking away from a one-match ban.

Sundowns, meanwhile, have no suspension concerns to deal with while the coach also has a fully-fit squad at his disposal with no new injury problems.
