Cape Town - Cape Town City midfielder Roland Putsche is hopeful the home ground advantage will work in their favour for the MTN8 semi-final showdown with Mamelodi Sundowns.

The two teams will clash in the first leg encounter at Cape Town Stadium on Saturday and with the return leg scheduled for Lucas Moripe Stadium next Sunday.

Putsche stated that his side will have to dig deep to get the better of the star studded Pitso Mosimane's side.

The Citizens will be looking to make it to the final for the second successive year having lost to Supersport United in the last year edition of the tournament.

"We analysed Sundowns already, we know how they play, that they are dangerous and won the league last season," Putsche told SABC.

"We know they have quality players and nobody will underestimate them.

"I think we have prepared well and we are also a good team as well.

"We want to show that Cape Town is our living room and we dictate here."

Kick-off is at 15:00.
