Sundowns v Gallants in the NBK Cup Final Starting XI
Mamelodi Sundowns vs Marumo Gallants in the Nedbank Cup Final
Date: May 28, 2022
Royal Bafokeng Stadium is the venue for this match.
After cruising past lower league sides in the early knockout stages, Sundowns reached the final after edging Royal AM 2-1 in the semi-finals. Royal AM was the only top-flight side they faced in the competition.
Apart from chasing a domestic treble after winning the MTN8 and league crowns, the Brazilians will be aiming to become the most successful team in the Nedbank Cup under current sponsors, since they are tied with SuperSport United for the most titles won (3).
Sundowns will also be looking for vengeance having being knocked out of the competition by Gallants (then known as Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila) in the semi-finals on penalties last season on their way to winning the title.
Bahlabane Ba Ntwa, on the other hand, advanced to the final for the second year in a row after a 1-0 semi-final victory over Tshakhuma (who have inherited their old name).
Gallants will be attempting to become only the second team to successfully defend the Nedbank Cup, following SuperSport's two-year reign in 2016 and 2017.
Sundowns will be competing in the CAF Champions League, therefore the Limpopo side has already qualified for the CAF Confederation Cup by virtue of reaching the final.

Sundowns: 1. Mweene, 4. Kekana, 6. B.Onyango, 7. Lakay, 25. Mudau, 15. Jali, 33. Maboe, 32. Kutumela, 1. Mweene, 4. Kekana,
