Maritzburg United can play their part in bringing an end to a 21-year wait for a league title in the KwaZulu-Natal province when they tackle Mamelodi Sundowns at the Loftus Versfeld Stadium on Wednesday.
Heading into Wednesday's showdown in Pretoria, Sundowns are top of the standings with 51 points from 24 games. AmaZulu have 50 points from 26 games, and Arrows, following a 1-0 defeat to AmaZulu on the weekend, are on 43 points from 26 games.
Maritzburg, meanwhile, have been in decent form in 2021, but remain just three points above the relegation zone.
So while they can do their fellow KZN teams a big favour, the Team of Choice have plenty to play for themselves and motivation won't be a problem against the Brazilians.
