Tonight, Sundowns must bounce back with a win against Polokwane City, while Chiefs can't afford any more slip-ups when they face Chippa United. Both teams are on level points, but Amakhosi have a superior goal difference at the top. But don't count out Bidvest Wits, who could sneak in if the two South African giants continue to stumble.
