Bidvest Wits can keep their Absa Premiership hopes alive with a win on Saturday, but they face against a tricky opponent in SuperSport United. The Hurricanes can keep the pressure on the Crusaders at the top of Super Rugby's New Zealand Conference should they beat the Chiefs and there is also an important Indian Premier League match on the cards between the Rajasthan Royals and the Sunrisers Hyderabad.
SuperSport United and Bidvest Wits face off at the Mbombela Stadium in a vital Absa Premiership clash. This would have been a potential title decider were it not for Matsatsantsa's 2-0 loss to AmaZulu on Wednesday. It should nevertheless be a pulsating contest.
Elsewhere, Tottenham Hotspur host West Ham United in a crucial match in the race for UEFA Champions League spots. Spurs are in fantastic home form and West Ham struggling away, so this may well be a one-sided affair.
