Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns will look to consolidate their place at the top of the Absa Premiership when they host SuperSport United at Lucas Moripe Stadium.

Sundowns extended their unbeaten run in the league to 10 matches with a 2-1 home win over University of Pretoria on January 16.

The Tshwane side has claimed 19 points from seven home matches this season.

The Brazilians are placed first on the Absa Premiership log with 30 points from 14 matches.

SuperSport suffered their first defeat since October when they were beaten 4-1 at Polokwane City on January 16.

The Tshwane side has claimed 11 points from seven away matches this season.

Matsatsantsa are placed 10th on the Absa Premiership log with 17 points from 14 matches.

In head-to-head stats, Sundowns and SuperSport have met in 48 league matches since 1990.

The Brazilians have claimed 23 wins compared to 14 for Matsatsantsa, while 11 matches have been drawn.
