CAPE TOWN - Cape Town City have, up to now, exhibited an extraordinary superiority over champion club Mamelodi Sundowns.
Since the inception of City as a PSL club, the two teams have met on three occasions, and the Capetonians have always emerged victorious.
So there is huge interest when City and Sundowns face off for the fourth time at the Athlone Stadium on Friday night (8pm), even more so because the two clubs are setting the pace at the top of the PSL standings – the Pretoria club out in front on 35 points, followed by the Cape side on 31.
Veteran midfielder Teko Modise warned, though, that it was important to remain calm and humble; Sundowns are still one of the best teams in the country, and they will be determined to put the City bogey to rest on Friday.
“This is an important game, it’s a top-of-the-table clash,” said Modise.
“They are on top of the log, and we are a few points behind, so it’s important that we get a good result. Sundowns are a very good team, but so are we.
“Our big problem is that we have not been scoring as many goals as we are supposed to. We score one goal, and that is it.
“But we are in a good frame of mind, and everybody is ready to play.”
