Cape Town City did the double over Ajax Cape Town last season, but can the Urban Warriors clinch the bragging rights this Saturday when they lock horns at the Cape Town Stadium?

City claimed 1-0 and 2-0 Absa Premiership wins over their neighbours, Ajax, in the 2016/17 season, where the Citizens were still under the mentorship of Head Coach Eric Tinkler at the time.

Bhongolethu Jayiya, who now plies his trade for Kaizer Chiefs, scored the first ever goal in the Cape Town derby, handing City a 1-0 victory on September 23, 2016.

In Ajax’s home encounter on February 11, 2017, Aubrey Ngoma handed the Citizens the lead, with Ajax’s Erwin Isaacs turning the ball into his own net to make the score 2-0 to City on the day.

Now, Cape Town-born Bafana Bafana legend, Benni McCarthy, will lead his side away to the Cape Town Stadium this weekend, as he looks to claim his first ever derby win at the helm of the Mother City-based club, in a bid to maintain City’s status as the dominant side in the Mother City. 

Ajax will play host at their joint home ground on Saturday, September 30, eager to claim their first win and give the Urban Warriors’ fans something to brag about for the first half of the season.
