Mamelodi Sundowns boss has no fitness worries at all before this game thanks to a completely injury-free group to choose from.
Team News: Cape Town City
Due to a mostly full-strength group of players, there’s only the one fitness issue for the Cape Town City gaffer Benni McCarthy to be concerned with. Edmilson Dove (Knee Surgery) won’t be playing here.
We’re of the opinion that Mamelodi Sundowns will, in all likelihood, stay in control for long periods of time and should be able to convert a few of the chances that they create.
At the same time, Cape Town City could well struggle to make a breakthrough - but, we do see them converting at least once here, too.
We’re therefore expecting to see a 3-1 win for Mamelodi Sundowns after 90 minutes.
