Starting lineup for Mamelodi
When they play Orlando Pirates in a pivotal PSL matchup on December 30, Mamelodi Sundowns may be able to have their star striker Peter Shalulile back.
Shaquille is about to start working out with his teammates again.
Before the start of the PSL, Mokwena released an injury update.
Mashego and Boutouil are expected to miss the Gauteng Derby match.
Before Masandawana’s game against the Buccaneers, the Namibian international is scheduled to start training again after undergoing surgery two months ago for a muscular injury.
After suffering injuries in last month’s Carling Black Label Cup match against Pirates, Sphelele Mkhulise and Haashim Domingo might be available.
However, Abdelmounaim Boutouil and Terrence Mashego are expected to miss the keenly awaited match as they continue to recover from procedures, according to Sundowns head coach Rhulani Mokwena.
Peter Shalulile should return to playing on grass within the next week, Mokwena informed the team’s media department.
“Haashim has also made good improvements, which also makes us happy. During the Carling Black Label Cup, [Siphelele] Mkhulisi was injured and is almost ready to make a full recovery.
“Bradley Ralani will gradually be incorporated into team training as he gets closer to beginning his conditioning work with the physical trainers.
But since Terence Mashego and Abdel Boutouil have both undergone surgery, we just have two long-term injury concerns. These two long-term ailments have therefore been surgically treated.
“[Erwin] Saavedra is making consistent advancements and wants to join team training. Cassius is also putting in a lot of effort to get better and is nearing the point where he is prepared to train with the conditioning team.
When Sundowns and Pirates square off later this month, Sundowns will have the psychological advantage.
In the Carling Black Label Cup final on November 12 at FNB Stadium, Masandawana defeated the Buccaneers emphatically, 4-0.
Additionally, Sundowns will aim to defeat the Soweto giants once more to gain ground on Pirates in the PSL standings.
The Brazilians lead the fifth-place Bucs by nine points.
At Loftus Versfeld Stadium in Pretoria, the Brazilians will take on the Buccaneers. The Tshwane Giants have gone four league games without losing at home against the Pirates.
News and Updates on the Starting Lineup for Orlando Pirates
Updates On injuries
Prior to their match with Mamelodi Sundowns, Orlando Pirates received a double squad boost.
Two of Orlando Pirates’ important players have resumed training, according to the team, ahead of their crucial PSL matchup against Mamelodi Sundowns.
The Carling Black Label Cup was missed by the Bafana duo last month.
The Buccaneers may be without three important players against Downs, but they’ll be out for blood against Masandawana.
Both Innocent Maela and Nkosinathi Sibisi have resumed their Soweto giants training, and they will be traveling to Pretoria on Friday to play Masandawana in a PSL match.
The Buccaneers have received a much-needed lift from this, as the pair play a key role in Jose Riveiro’s defense, which has allowed just seven goals in 13 league games this season.
On Thursday morning, the Pirates’ official website released the following message.
According to a club release, Innocent Maela, the captain of the Buccaneers, and fellow defender Nkosinathi Sibisi were among those who skipped the Carling Black Label Cup.
The pair has since started training again and plans to play at Loftus.
Maela and Sibisi have played 12 and 13 games, respectively, this term as regulars for the Pirates team.
As Riveiro clings to his tried-and-true 3-4-3 shape, the Bafana Bafana internationals are set to start alongside Tapelo Xoki in a three-man defense.
The PSL champs, Richard Ofori, Olisa Ndah, and Thembinkosi Lorch might not be available.
Due to injuries they sustained while playing for their club, Ofori and Ndah withdrew from the Ghana and Nigeria squads, respectively, last month.
Lorch has been recovering from a significant knee injury he suffered in August of this year.
When the Buccaneers play Sundowns in the 2022-23 PSL season’s first match following a break caused by the Qatar 2022 World Cup finals, they will be out for vengeance.
Sundowns embarrassed Pirates in the Carling Black Label Cup final last month, winning 4-0 at FNB Stadium thanks to an excellent performance from Masandawana.
