The PSL returns this weekend as Cape Town City welcome Mamelodi Sundowns to Cape Town Stadium in a potentially exhilarating encounter on Saturday evening.
Coming into this fixture, the Brazilians are the team in form, having gone unbeaten in their first nine games in the league following their comfortable 4-0 victory over Marumo Gallants at the Peter Mokaba Stadium on 7 November, through a brace by Peter Shalulile and goals from Themba Zwane and Pavol Šafranko, respectively.
Meanwhile, the Citizens will be hoping to return to winning ways in the league after they suffered a 2-0 defeat at the hands of AmaZulu at the Moses Mabhida Stadium on 7 November in their previous game, which saw Augustine Mulenga bag a brace to guide Benni McCarthy’s side to victory against his former team.
The defending champions currently dominate the league standings and sit at the top of the table with 25 points from nine games, having won eight and drawn one game, while City are placed ninth on the log with 12 points after nine games after they managed to claim three wins, three draws and three defeats.
When the two sides last met in the MTN8 final, Sundowns came out victorious after they overcame the Citizens in a dramatic penalty shootout at the Moses Mabhida Stadium on Saturday, 30 October after the game ended 1-1 after extra-time.
