Teams: Baroka v Mamelodi Sundowns
Date: 09 January 2021
Venue: Peter Mokaba Stadium
Mamelodi Sundowns will be looking to continue their fine recent form when they face Baroka FC at Peter Mokaba Stadium on Saturday.

Bakgaga, meanwhile, are down in eight with an inconsistent three wins, three draws and three losses to start their campaign, last being held 2-2 by top-flight new boys TS Galaxy after losing 3-1 to SuperSport United.
The Brazilians will cement top spot with another victory this afternoon against Baroka, who they failed to beat in both league encounters last season.
The match gets underway at 15h00.
