Teams: Kaizer Chiefs v Cape Town City
Date: 17 February 2018
Venue: FNB Stadium
Kaizer Chiefs and Cape Town City will go all out for vital three points when they square off in a Absa Premiership match at FNB Stadium this evening.
Amakhosi are under pressure not to lose any ground in the league race as they try to catch leaders Mamelodi Sundowns.
Steve Komphela’s troops secured their passage into the last 16 of the Nedbank Cup after beating Golden Arrows 3-0 last weekend.
Before the Cup triumph, Chiefs drew 1-1 with Bidvest Wits in the league and currently sit seven points behind the Brazilians in fifth spot.
Similarly, the Citizens still have ambitions of catching up with Masandawana at the top of the standings and will want to bounce back to winning ways after they went down 1-0 to Sundowns in their last league outing.
Benni McCarthy’s charges also advanced to the last 16 of the Nedbank Cup after beating Bidvest Wits 1-0 at the Bidvest Stadium.
The Mother City-based side are level on points with Amakhosi in sixth place but will move up to second spot with a win.
