Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns have confirmed that captain Hlompho Kekana will be available for Friday's CAF Champions League clash with ES Tunis, while Yannick Zakri is suspended.

Kekana was earlier said to be unavailable for the tie although it has since emerged he is fit to face Blood and Gold at Lucas Masterpieces Moripe Stadium in Pretoria.

The midfielder missed Sundowns final Premiership encounter against Highlands Park for undisclosed reasons, however, he will return for the Pitso Mosimane-coached outfit.  

Meanwhile, Ivory Coast international, Zakri, will play no part in Friday's game as he is suspended.

It could be a loss as the 26-year-old is in fine form and scored his first Champions League goal for the club against AS Vita Club.

The Brazilians can go top of Group C with a victory which will be a result that will see the side from Chloorkop seemingly put one foot in the quarter-final stages.
