Wits have won both away matches so far this season – including a 1-0 victory at Polokwane City on Wednesday, August 14 in their last league outing. However, the Clever Boys’ only home match so far this term ended in a 1-0 loss at the hands of Baroka FC earlier in the month.

Stellenbosch have yet to win in their debut top-flight season, though they have recorded two draws: 0-0 at Chippa United in the opening round and 0-0 at home to Maritzburg United this past Sunday, August 25. The Cape side will be aiming for a first three-point haul of the campaign.

In head-to-head terms, this will be the first top-flight meeting of Bidvest Wits and Stellenbosch. However, when the latter team was still known as Vasco Da Gama, the clubs met in two league games in the 2010/11 season: Vasco won 2-0 at home in September 2010, while the return game in Johannesburg in February the following year saw the Clever Boys rack up a 6-0 victory.
