Key Stats:
 
With low shots on goal of only 8.5, AmaZayoni could be in huge trouble coming against a very attacking side that has already banged in five goals in their past two matches. As a matter of fact, the home side will have to step up big in tonight’s tie as all stats do not match that of the Glamour Boys. The attack for Clive Barker’s team include former Kaizer Chiefs striker, Collins Mbesuma, who will target a scalp against his former side, while in-form Zimbabwean forward, Tendai Ndoro, will look to add more firepower upfront.
