Will it be Cape Town City who emerge from the Premiership clash with all the points and a first win of the season at the second attempt or new boys Stellenbosch FC?
The Citizens will be banking on past league experience that hasn’t delivered silverware. They came close last season in an eventual fourth-place finish. A slow start and meltdown at the business end of the competition proved costly.
This is another chance for coach Benni McCarthy in his third season at the helm to create history for the club formed in 2016. He tasted glory in the MTN 8 last season.
Judged on their season-opener, there is work to do, especially in defence. Up 2-0 at Baroka FC, City surrendered their advantage before half-time and had to make do with a share of the spoils. It should have been 3-2 had Kermit Erasmus, who had scored earlier, not fluffed his lines from close range.
