Mamelodi Sundowns take on Cape Town City at Loftus Versfeld, this is game number four in nine days. Football in the BSE has been a challenge and Coach Pitso Mosimane has acknowledged that. Two Absa Premiership games have been played and out of six points, Masandawana has collected two.
Lyle Lakay who has donned the colours of the Citizens said that a team in their position is very dangerous, as much as we are fighting for the league they are also fighting to be in a better position. “We expect them to come out with everything, this is the time in a season where everyone is fighting.”
The Citizens collected maximum points in their opening game in the “Bubble” against Chippa United. Clashes against the Cape Town side are always a spectacle. In the previous seven meetings, a total of sixteen goals have been scored between the sides and nine of those were scored by Masandawana. The Brazilians have registered four wins out of the seven clashes.
The left wingback is celebrating his birthday today and he shared his feelings on playing his former team, “it will be a good birthday present, last year on the same day we played them and it was a draw. I trust we will get three points tonight so I can have a great one.”
The match takes place at a familiar hunting ground for Mamelodi Sundowns, even though the game is an away game Loftus has been a good home for the Brazilians.
The match will kickoff at 18:00 and will be broadcasted on SuperSport 4.
