Abafana Bes’thende are placed 11th on the Absa Premiership log with 19 points from 18 matches.

In head-to-head stats, Sundowns and Arrows have met in 25 league matches since 2000/01.

The Brazilians have claimed 11 wins compared to eight for Abafana Bes’thende, while six matches have been drawn.

‘Downs have a good home record against the Durban side, with six wins, four draws and just two losses from 12 matches.

When the teams met earlier this season, Abafana Bes’thende claimed a 1-0 home win thanks to a late penalty from Khuboni.
