Ajax vs Sundowns In Numbers

Absa Premiership Round 2 – Ajax Cape Town vs. Mamelodi Sundowns
 
Date: 13 August 2014
 
Time: 19:30
 
Venue: Cape Town Stadium
 
 
Ajax Cape Town are set for a real stern test to their PSL campaign thus far when they host Absa Premiership champions, Mamelodi Sundowns, this evening. The Urban Warriors played to a 0-0 stalemate away to AmaZulu last weekend, and will look to add more woes to Pitso Mosimane’s side who also played to a draw in their opening game when they were held to a 1-1 scoreline by Maritzburg United, and were booted out of the MTN8 competition by Platinum Stars two weeks ago.

Key Stats:
 
The home side will have to put in a much better performance if they wish to pick up maximum points against Msandawana. Roger De Sa’s side possess better successful passes: 327 compared to Sundowns’ successful passes of 306.5. However the star-studded Chloorkop outfit hold the upper hand in all other stats and will look to use that to their advantage.
