Cape Town City will make amends for their loss against Supersport Unitedlast year in the MTN8 final on penalties, as the same teams lock horns on Saturday 29 at the Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban,

Citizens are out to turn the tables against their arch-rivals.

In their last two Absa Premiership matches, Cape Town City had mixed results. They were hammered 4-1 at home by Kaizer Chiefs and drew 2-2 with Orlando Pirates in the Orlando Stadium in Soweto.

To play in a final with a prize money of R8m is different from playing in the Absa Premiership. The game can turn into a goal fest where the strikers will determine the outcome, or it can be an ugly game where one team is defending and the game is decided either by one goal or by penalties when the scores are tied.

If you look at the current Absa Premiership log, Supersport United is lying above Cape Town City-in sixth place-compared to the homeboys’ 10th position.

The Citizens are hell-bent on bringing the trophy home, according to coach Benni McCarthy, who said at the beginning of the season that he is out to win trophies. This sentiment was shared by captain Thami Mkhize, but as the saying goes, the proof of the pudding is in the eating.

Whether or not Cape Town City is the “wounded animal” on Saturday, fans will be in for a treat. Tickets are on sale for the final.
