Mamelodi Sundowns return to action this evening when they travel to the Mbombela Stadium to face TS Galaxy.

It’s do-or-die for both Galaxy and the Brazilians who clash in the Carling Knockout Cup round of 16 this evening.

Seven Mamelodi Sundowns stars have been ruled out of tonight’s match as they’re thousands of kilometres away from Mbombela.

Mokwena’s stars were in action for Bafana Bafana last night when they tackled Ivory Coast in Abidjan and will travel straight to Angola for the Brazilians next match against Petro Atletico de Luanda. (Ronwen Williams, Khuliso Mudau, Grant Kekana, Mothobi Mvala, Aubrey Modiba, Teboho Mokoena and Themba Zwane)

The Brazilians are also missing seven more players due to injury taking the total ‘missing list’ to 14 players! (Thapelo Morena, Siyanda Nyanga, Sipho Mbule, Bathusi Aubaas, Lucas Ribeiro, Abubaker Nassir and Peter Shalulile)
