The Brazilians recently lost their top spot to rivals Orlando Pirates albeit by only a goal difference and will be eager to reclaim it by beating the Team of Choice at Harry Gwala Stadium this evening.
Sundowns have struggled for consistency in the league since the start of 2019, dropping crucial points unnecessarily.
They collected just one point in their last two matches, losing to Cape Town City, and played out to a stalemate with Bloemfontein Celtic.
Maritzburg haven’t lost at home since Eric Tinkler took over the reins from Muhsin Ertugral in January.
They beat Polokwane City and AmaZulu at home, therefore Sundowns will have to be at their best if they are to beat them tonight.
