Cape Town City haven’t tasted victory in their last eight league matches they have played and are hosting SuperSport United hunting for maximum points.
The Citizens are playing well from the backline to the midfield but scoring goals is their main issue – they have only scored five goals in the past eight league games.
The Matsatsansa’s performances also haven’t been good recently. They were producing convincing results in January but the constant change of formation and players’ positions has led to inconsistency.
United are under pressure to get back to winning ways as they’re battling to qualify for Caf competitions. What about fighting for the league title? Yes mathematically, they can still win it but Mamelodi Sundowns look unstoppable on top of the table.
Cape Town City have won three of the last five clashes against SuperSport, lost one with one draw.
The in-form Bafana Bafana Sipho Mbule is one of the players that can help out United with his massive energy in the attack.
If I was City’s coach, I would start with midfielder Mduduzi Mdantsane who can score and also who links well with Thabo Nodada.
I’d bet on a draw in this one as both teams will come out not to lose.
