SuperSport United play hosts to Maritzburg United at the Lucas Moripe Stadium on Saturday evening.
Teams: SuperSport United v Maritzburg United
Date: 25 September 2021
Venue: Lucas Moripe Stadium
This after Matsatsantsa clipped the wings of Swallows FC 3-0 last Sunday to preserve their unbeaten start and at that go second on the table, two points off leaders Mamelodi Sundowns.
Matsatsantsa have to date recorded two wins and two draws from their four matches played, and face a Maritzburg side brimming with confidence too.
The Team of Choice, who started the campaign with losses to Golden Arrows and the newcomers Sekhukhune United, have quickly changed their fortunes with successive victories.
Wins away to Baroka FC and then a smash-and-grab over Marumo Gallants FC in midweek took Maritzburg to seventh-place on the table, four points from the top.
There are suspensions and key ones either side, as Luke Fleurs gets to miss out for SuperSport to Bafana Bafana’s Bongokuhle Hlongwane being unavailable for Maritzburg.
Bradley Grobler’s brace in the corresponding fixture last season helped Matsatsantsa to a 2-0 victory over Maritzburg.
