  • Cape Town City have won 2 of their last 3 home matches (Premier Soccer League).
  • Cape Town City have kept 3 clean sheets in their last 4 home matches (Premier Soccer League).
  • Maritzburg United have lost their last 2 away matches (Premier Soccer League).

Head to Head


Cape Town City hold a 4-3 advantage across their previous 10 meetings with Maritzburg United with three draws.

The sides last met in October as City won 1-0 away at Maritzburg.

Cape Town City Form


City sit seventh in the PSL table having gone three matches without a win and having sacked coach Jan Olde Riekerink after two recent losses. They have won just three of their last 14 matches in the league.

After an eight match run without a win, City beat SuperSport United 3-0, Kaizer Chiefs 2-1 and ten man TTM 3-0. A humiliating 5-1 home defeat to AmaZulu followed before losing 1-0 at TS Galaxy, leading to Riekerink being sacked.

Caretaker coach Diego Peral was in charge for the last match, a dull 0-0 draw away at Bloemfontein Celtic.

Cape Town City Injuries & Team News


City are without Thami Mkhize at right back and Tashreeq Morris up front due to suspension. Top winger Bradley Ralani remains doubtful.

Abbubaker Mobara went off injured in the last match so Keanu Cupido could replace him at centre back.

Maritzburg United Form


Maritzburg sit 12th in the table but are three points from the relegation play-off spot and need a result from this match. They have lost two of their last three PSL matches having had a run of one defeat in nine prior to that with four wins and four draws.

They picked up a 1-0 win at Stellenbosch after a fortunate late penalty before a 1-1 draw with Swallows after throwing away a 1-0 lead. A 2-0 defeat at Mamelodi Sundowns followed before beating Golden Arrows 3-2 after facing a late barrage from the visitors.

In their last match, they lost 1-0 at TTM in a match where they carried very little attacking threat.

Maritzburg United Injuries & Team News


Maritzburg are without winger Jose Ali Meza and striker Bongokuhle Hlongwane so their attack is significantly weakened.

Coach Ernst Middendorp has a full squad otherwise if winger Sibusiso Hlubi returns as expected. He may look to spring a surprise such as playing a back three to surprise Cape Town City.
