DStv Premiership

Teams: Golden Arrows v Maritzburg United

Date: 21 August 2021

Venue: Princess Magogo Stadium

Time: 15h00

Arrows won't be strangers to the 2021/22 season after getting their campaign underway with a penalty shoot-out win over SuperSport United last weekend in the MTN8 quarter-finals.

Abafana Bes'thende had their best finish in the league last season after ending in fourth place, with their former coach Mandla Ncikazi joining Orlando Pirates in the off-season although he was replaced by Lehlohonolo Seema.

In contrast, the Team of Choice narrowly avoided the relegation play-offs after finishing in 13th place last season, with Ernst Middendorp rescuing the side after taking over from Eric Tinkler in the early stages of the season, in his fourth spell in charge.

As a result, United were not involved in the MTN8 competition last weekend, although they had a decent pre-season after winning the KZN Premier's Cup.

Both sides won their home games in their duels last season, with Arrows winning 2-1 in the first round while Maritzburg edged a five-goal thriller in May.
