Cape Town - Black Aces and Mamelodi Sundowns will both look to continue their strong starts to the Absa Premiership season when they meet at Mbombela Stadium.

Aces played to a 1-1 draw at home to SuperSport United on August 22.

The Mpumalanga side’s first result of the season was a 1-0 away win over Free State Stars.

AmaZayoni are placed third on the Absa Premiership log with four points from two matches.

Sundowns claimed their first win of the season when they defeated Bidvest Wits 4-2 on August 22.

The Pretoria side’s previous away game was a goalless draw at Platinum Stars on the opening weekend of the season.

The Brazilians are placed second on the Absa Premiership log with four points from two matches.

In head-to-head stats, Aces and Sundowns have met in 33 league matches since 1985.

The Brazilians have 23 wins compared to five for AmaZayoni, while five matches have been drawn.

Aces have won three of their 16 home matches against Sundowns, suffering nine defeats in the process.

Last season the teams played to a goalless draw in their first match in Tshwane, before sharing the spoils at 1-1 in the return game in Mpumalanga.

AmaZayoni have beaten the Brazilians just once in the PSL era (1996/97 onwards).

Kick-off is at 19:30 on Tuesday, August 25.
