This upcoming weekend sees the 14th edition of the MTN8 take place between Mamelodi Sundowns and Cape Town City at the Moses Mabhida stadium. The last time the Citizens had their hands on the trophy was during the 2018/19 season whereas Sundowns haven’t won an official MTN8 trophy. Downs last won this trophy in 2007, but the competition was still known as the SAA Supa Eight cup.
When it comes to the head-to-head stats, these two teams have faced off against each other 23 times, with the Citizens winning 8 games, losing 12, and drawing 3. Masandawana have won 12 and lost 8. City have been in fine form in recent weeks having won 7 home games, where Downs have had a mixed bag of performances, however, clean sheets and scoring goals seem to be a trend with the Brazilians, winning 10 of the recent home games.
The outcome will not be known until the fine kick of the ball, but one thing is for certain, a mouthwatering fixture is on the cards. With the game being filled with uncertainty, many fans believe this match is going to be one of the toughest with one fan even saying, ‘I don’t know who is going to win.’
On the latest episode of the Fan Reaction Show, soccer fans around the country preview the 2021/2022 MTN8 final between Sundowns and City and Masandawana fans are hopeful that their team will have their name on the trophy.
