MTN8 2016

Starting XI: Cape Town City v Kaizer Chiefs

MTN8
 
Teams: Cape Town City v Kaizer Chiefs
 
Date: 26 August 2016
 
Venue: Cape Town Stadium
 
Cape Town City are set to host Kaizer Chiefs in the opening MTN8 clash of the season on Friday.
 
Eric Tinkler's Mother City outfit got their top-flight history off to a winning start on Tuesday with a 2-0 victory over Polokwane City.
 
City will now make another debut appearance as they head into their first cup competition after rebranding and moving their franchise to Cape Town.
 
Meanwhile, the pressure on Kaizer Chiefs is mounting after their disappointing 2-1 defeat at the hands of Bidvest Wits in midweek.
 
They will, however, take heart from the fact that they are the most successful team in the competition, having claimed 15 Top Eight titles, and making it all the way to the final last season.
 
Here's how they line up:
 
Cape Town City: 1 Walters, 4 Kobola, 27 Gumede, 3 Rode, 12 Modiba, 23 Matsi, 7 Sim, 19 Putsche, 10 Jayiya, 8 Manyama, 45 Majoro
 
Kaizer Chiefs: 32 Khune, 18 Moleko, 26 Gordinho, 24 Masilela, 2 Mphahlele, 31 Katsande, 35 Baloyi, 11 Chiramadare, 7 Twala, 25 Parker, 19 Macha
