Match day is upon us and my two preferred teams in the Absa Premiership are going to face off against each other, Ajax Cape Town and Bidvest Wits.
Yes, some may ask how can I support these two teams? Well, it is simple. I enjoy the brand of football both teams play.
From Roger De Sa’s fluid and attacking style of play, to Gavin Hunt’s highly disciplined approach to each game has left me to admire the two coaches’ work individually.
So tonight, at Athlone Stadium, my boys will be up against each other to extend their long history of 28 matches in the league.
Here are some head-to-head stats:
Both teams have claimed nine wins each, while 10 matches have been drawn. The Clever Boys have scored 26 goals in comparison to the Urban Warriors’ 22 strikes.
Since their first meeting in 1999/2000, Ajax have won six of their 14 home matches against Wits, suffering four defeats in the process.
Last season each side won their respective home game’s 1-0. Current Ajax player Robin Ngalande scored in Johannesburg for Wits, while Carl Lark netted in the return game in Cape Town.
