Having recently lost 2-1 away to Congolese club As Otoho d’oyo in the CAF Champions League preliminary rounds, Downs will be looking to get back to winning ways.

Pitso will be relying on in-form Thapelo Morena, who provided two assists in the opening fixture, and scored in Congo-Brazzaville.

On the other hand, the Chilli Boys welcomed newly-promoted side Stellenbosch FC to the Windy City in their opening tie, with both club sharing spoils in a 0-0 draw on Saturday afternoon.
