Tau had been injured for weeks, and he missed the FIFA Club World Cup in the United Arab Emirates earlier this month (February).

However, he returned to training on Monday, and he appears to have done enough to warrant a place in the starting line-up that will battle his former employers this weekend.

Should he feature, Tau would be facing Sundowns for the first time in his professional career as he never played for any top-flight club besides the Tshwane giants in South Africa.

Tau left Sundowns for Brighton & Hove Albion in 2018 but he spent a few seasons on loan in Belgium for Royal Union St-Gilloise, Club Brugge and Anderlecht.

He returned to Brighton at the start of 2021 but his lack of game time forced him to leave the Premier League club for Al Ahly.
