Baroka have won just one of their last nine league matches after suffering a 2-1 defeat at home to Mamelodi Sundowns on April 8. The Limpopo side has picked up just eight points from a possible 27 in the sequence.

Maritzburg, on the other hand, played to their ninth draw of the season when they were held 1-1 at home by Cape Town City on April 7. The KwaZulu-Natal side were on course for all three points, but conceded a late equaliser to bring up a second straight winless match.

In head-to-head stats, Baroka and Maritzburg have met in three league matches since the start of last season. The Team of Choice boasts a 100 percent record in the rivalry, including a 3-0 triumph earlier this season in Pietermaritzburg thanks to goals from Evans Rusike (two) and Siphesihle Ndlovu.
