Mamelodi Sundowns are yet to claim a victory over either Cape Town sides but will be eager to get revenge over Ajax Cape Town after their 2-0 defeat to the Urban Warriors last year.
Masandawana will host the Urban Warriors at the Loftus Versfeld Stadium on Tuesday, April 25, where a win for Head Coach, Pitso Mosimane, could fire his side to the number one spot on the Absa Premiership league standings.
However, this will only be possible if Cape Town City, Kaizer Chiefs and Bidvest Wits all drop points in their respective encounters on the same day.
The last time the two sides met in the Absa Premiership this season, Ajax hosted the CAF Champions League winners at the Cape Town Stadium last year, November 30, where Head Coach Stanley Menzo’s side claimed a dramatic 2-0 win over the Brazilians.

“We played well against them when we played them at home. Their style of play suits us I think, if we can stay in the game, play football but of course they are also in the running for the championship so they will be desperate to win this game, also of course to make up for the defeat they suffered in Cape Town,” Menzo said, as quoted on Ajax’s official website.
On the other end of the log, if Ajax manages to secure a win over the in-form Sundowns side, the Urban Warriors will move closer to a spot in the top eight of the Absa Premiership.
