On-fire AmaZulu look to burn Sundowns

The DStv Premiership’s in-form team, AmaZulu, will look to take down reigning champions Mamelodi Sundowns when the teams meet at Kings Park Stadium on Wednesday 21 April 2021, kick-off at 15h00.

AmaZulu racked up a sixth successive league win when they defeated Stellenbosch FC 1-0 away from home on April 9, with Thabo Qalinge scoring an injury-time winner.

Usuthu have claimed 21 points from 11 home matches this season, with their last result as hosts a 2-0 win over Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila in March.

Sundowns extended their unbeaten run to 20 matches through this season when they defeated Chippa United 2-1 away on April 12, with goals from Themba Zwane and Peter Shalulile.

The Brazilians have claimed 24 points from 10 away matches this season, with only Maritzburg United, Golden Arrows and SuperSport United denying the champions victory on the road thus far in 2020/21.

In head-to-head stats, Sundowns and AmaZulu have met in 60 league matches since 1985. The Brazilians have claimed 39 wins compared to eight for Usuthu, while 13 matches have been drawn. The Durban side has won just two of their 30 home matches in the rivalry, suffering 21 defeats in the process.

When the teams met earlier this season, at Loftus Versfeld Stadium in November 2020, Sundowns claimed a 4-3 home win thanks to a hat-trick from Themba Zwane and decisive strike from Peter Shalulile.
