Baroka’s 2018/19 season got off to a slow start as they were edged 1-0 by AmaZulu in Durban on August 4, with the Limpopo side unable to recover from Siyethemba Sithebe’s goal.

City opened their campaign on a positive note, as second-half goals from Roland Putsche and Craig Martin secured a 2-0 home win over SuperSport United on August 4.

In head-to-head stats, Baroka and City have met in four league matches since 2016/17. Bakgaga have claimed two wins compared to one for the Citizens, while one game has been drawn.

Last season Baroka took four points off City, claiming a 1-1 draw in Cape Town before recording a 2-0 home win in the return game, which featured a brace of goals from Mpho Kgaswane.
