How Ajax Can Use Chiefs To Survive In The Absa Prem

What Ajax Cape Town Need To Do To Avoid Going To The Relegation Play Offs

By Soccer Laduma - May 07, 2018 06:18 PM

Ajax Cape Town will have one final shot this weekend to battle for survival when they face Kaizer Chiefs at the Cape Town Stadium.

Platinum Stars was recently automatically relegated from the Absa Premiership after being officially unable to reach more than 24 points this season.

The Urban Warriors will need to make sure that they clinch all three points in their last league encounter, in order to be hopeful that they can avoid going to the relegation play-offs.

However, this is not all. Ajax will be keeping a close eye on both Polokwane City and SuperSport United, who will be in action against Chippa United and Baroka FC respectively on the same day.

If Ajax win their clash against Chiefs and either SuperSport or Polokwane secure a draw in their respective fixtures, the decision will then go down to goal difference, with the Urban Warriors then needing to have scored at least three goals on the final day in order for the decision to favour the Cape Town-based club.

However, win for Polokwane, and SuperSport over Baroka will take Ajax joint with Baroka on 34 points (should they beat Chiefs), with the outcome set to be determined on goal difference between the two.

In addition, if either SuperSport or Polokwane lose on the day, Ajax will move safely above either team, should they beat Chiefs.

Ajax are currently 15th place on the league standings, although could go up to 12th place if the results favour them on the day.

@Shenge_Velobala if you had checked the log first you wouldn't agree with the Cowditor. Ajax has a superior goal difference to Supersport.

@Katlego_kay the editor is right AJax needs favours because If SSU n Baroka plays into a draw they will be 34,35 respectively that which Baroka will be home and dry cos Ajax will end up at 34 if they happen to win and SSU will be a joint 34 it will then go down to goal difference that is why the editor suggest that AJax win with 3 goals it more

Cowditor, with all due respect you are lying. A win for Ajax will secure their safety regardless of what happens in Pretoria and Polokwane. The fact that Supersport(33points) and Baroka(34points)play against each other means only one of them can finish above Ajax regardless of the outcome of their match. Ajax needs only a win to survive and no one else's favour.

This is inaccurate, Ajax do NOT need to worry about the outcomes of other matches to survive, they just need to win because whatever result that will be yield from the SSU v Baroka game, will place either team below Ajax... make a scenario where Ajax win 1-0 and pit that against any result from the SSU v Baroka game, you will realise that Ajax ends up above one of the two teams. Hope you find sense in this crucial comment of note *Maths_@_Work*

@Fifa 81 : It's only Baroka who needs a draw to escape the play-offs.Should both Plk City and SSU draw their matches and Ajax win with 3 or more goals against dead Zebras then it will go down to goal difference and that could possibly see Ajax avoid relegation play-offs.
