    • Ethan Brooks vs Themba Zwane: The talented Brooks will look to dictate midfield play for AmaZulu, while Zwane’s vision and passing will be crucial for Sundowns.
    • Pablo Franco Martín vs Rhulani Mokwena: The tactical battle between the two coaches will be fascinating. Franco Martin’s possession-based approach against Mokwena’s counter-attacking style could produce an exciting encounter.
