Starting XI: CT City v TS Galaxy

Cape Town City will host TS Galaxy on Saturday evening at DHL Stadium, with the Citizens eager to bounce back in their race for CAF Champions League football.

DStv Premiership

Teams: Cape Town City v TS Galaxy

Date: 07 May 2022

Venue: Cape Town Stadium

Time: 19h30

The Citizens have been not tasted defeat this calendar year, as their unbeaten run extended to 11 matches with a goalless draw against Chippa United in midweek.

However, Eric Tinkler's charges missed the chance to grab second spot on the log after Royal AM lost on the same evening against Maritzburg United.

A point for City saw them go equal on points with Thwihli Thwahla andntuey will have a chance to pull three points clear, as John Maduka's men are not in action over the weekend.

The Rockets, on the other hand, claimed a major scalp in their recent outing after edging Orlando Pirates 1-0 on Monday and boosted their chances of surviving relegation.

Sead Ramovic's troops extended their unbeaten run to four matches in the process and are two points clear of the relegation play-off spot held by Swallows in 14th place on the log.

Galaxy will be motivated to get maximum points after rivals the Birds could only manage a draw against SuperSport United on Friday evening.

As a result, the Rockets could be on the brink of securing their Premiership status if they become the first side to beat the Citizens this year in the league.

The sides could not be separated in the first round clash after sharing the spoils in a four-goal thriller at Mbombela Stadium.

Here's how they line up:

City: 1. Marques, 2. Mkhize, 15. Cupido, 12. Fielies, 14. Mashego, 6. Mokhuoane, 26. Nodada, 10. Mdantsane, 9. Gonzalez, 30. Martin, 17. Mayo.

Subs: 16. Keet, 22. Fisher, 21. Mokeke, 20. Morris, 27. Goedeman, 4. Fasika, 49. Rhodes, 8. Makola, 28. May.

Galaxy: 38. Buthelezi, 45. Sanoka, 3. Seedat, 5. Msimango, 23. Munyai, 35. Mbatha, 13.  Hlongwane, 15. Aubaas, 44. Mongae, 6. Mbunjana, 27. Mahlangu.

Subs: 32. Kolak, 4. Mahlangu, 8. Nduli, 30. Mere, 47. Teto, 25. Fakude, 17. Kwem, 14. Radebe, 49. Sebelebele.
