Tshwane derby is one sided
The draw of the last four MTN8 teams has pitted the Tshwane giants- Supersport United and Mamelodi Sundowns- against each other. Some have dubbed this fixture a final before the actual final- whilst this can't be far from the truth- but the Tshwane derby is one sided. Sundowns has dominated this fixture for quite some time now. One thing for certain is there are plenty of goals in the capital city's rivalry. With the odds stacked against Matsatsantsa a Pitori- the 2017 MTN8 champions can fancy their chances based on their luck in this tournament. Supersport has build a cup specialists pedigree in recent years. Bafana Ba Style has an upper hand over their city rivals but this is the tournament that has eluded them for over a decade now. What makes this clash more interesting is the fact that- Supersport knows how to win cup games- and Sundowns is desperately in need of this piece of silverware. A derby match is the most fierce rivalry in any sporting quote. Sundowns claimed a victory in the league opening fixture, will they repeat the feat in the cup or Supersport will go all out for a revenge? Not only the best team will win, but the luckiest one on the day.
