Key Stats:
 
The Students have amassed more entries into the final third (85.53) than the Brazilians (66), and will look to use it to their advantage to overcome Pitso Mosimane’s side, who have gone 12 matches unbeaten in all competitions. The Chloorkop-based outfit however do have all the other stats in their favour, and could make use of it to extend their unbeaten streak and close the gap on league leaders, Kaizer Chiefs.
