Maritzburg suffered a sixth successive loss when they were beaten 2-0 at home by Chippa United on October 21.

The KwaZulu-Natal side has claimed zero points from three away matches this season.

The Team of Choice is placed 16th on the Absa Premiership log with one point from seven matches.

In head-to-head stats, Sundowns and Maritzburg have met in 18 league matches since 2005/06.
