M. Sundowns vs Matsapha Utd at Somhlolo National Stadium, 7pm

MBABANE – The last time Manzini Sundowns won an MTN League game, never mind locating the back of the net, it rained in the Kalahari Desert.

It was December 3, 2017- a convincing 3-0 win over relegation cannon fodder Mbabane City. Since then, the ‘Kappa Boys’ managed a point from a possible nine having failed to score in 270 minutes of MTN League football.

Tonight, Musa Manyatsi charges welcome Matsapha United in an attempt to get back to winning ways.
To do so, they will have to score goals especially against a Matsapha side so desperate for points, making this particular clash a must-watch. The ‘Deep Blue Ocean’ as the elite league new boys are fondly called has managed four points in their last three games but in front of goal, they have not been so convincing either.

A defeat to Green Mamba courtesy of a Solomon Oladele solitary strike, a hard-fought 1-0 win over Vovovo and a 1-all draw against Moneni Pirates was all Matsapha could get in 270 minutes. Not bad at all for the Saul Chaminuka side but the conversion ratio should be worrying the Zimbabwean strategist along with Manyatsi, his opposite number tonight.

The two sides played to a 1-all draw in their first round meeting on September 23, 2017 at King Sobhuza II Memorial Stadium. Galloping forward Sandumuzi Zwane raced to open the scorers chart as early as the sixth minute before Mthobisi ‘Mkhelele’ Mdluli cancelled with a perfectly curled goal to ensure spoils were shared.
