Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns will chase a hat-trick of Absa Premiership wins when they host Polokwane City at Lucas Moripe Stadium.

Sundowns picked up a second successive win when they beat Jomo Cosmos 2-0 away on September 27.

The Tshwane side has claimed six points from two home matches this season.

The Brazilians are placed sixth on the Absa Premiership log with 10 points from six matches.

Polokwane saw their winless streak extended to five matches when they were beaten 2-1 at Chippa United on September 25.

The Limpopo side has claimed zero points from three away matches this season.

Rise and Shine are placed 12th on the Absa Premiership log with five points from six matches.

In head-to-head stats, Sundowns and Polokwane have met in four league matches since 2013/14.

The Brazilians have claimed three wins compared to one for Rise and Shine, while zero matches have been drawn.

Sundowns won both of their two previous home matches against Polokwane, scoring six unanswered goals in the process.

Last season the Brazilians did a league ‘double’ over City, winning 3-0 in Polokwane and 5-0 in the return game in Tshwane.

Sundowns players have scored all 10 goals in league meetings between the teams, as Polokwane’s only strike in the rivalry was own goal from Brazilians defender Tebogo Langerman.

The encounter is set for Sunday, October 18.

Kick-off is at 15:30.
