Cape Town City
Cape Town City head into this fixture following a 2-2 Premier Division stalemate against TTM.
Blue and Gold Army have been finding it hard to keep clean sheets lately, but they’ve also done enough to hit the back of the net themselves. Looking at their last 6 games, Blue and Gold Army have been punished defensively in 6 of them in addition to managing to get on the scoresheet in 6 of those games.
Going into this game, the form guide shows that Cape Town City:
- are winless against Kaizer Chiefs in their last 2 league games.
- are undefeated in their last 3 league matches at home.
Kaizer Chiefs will come into the game following a 0-1 Premier Division win against AmaZulu in their most recent outing.
The stats don’t lie, and Kaizer Chiefs have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 matches, with opponents netting 8 goals overall. In defence, Amakhosi have seen their frailties exposed. We shall soon find out whether or not that trend can be continued on here.
