PRETORIA – Fireworks are expected in the Tshwane derby when Mamelodi Sundowns and SuperSport United clash in the MTN8 semifinals at the Lucas Moripe Stadium, Pretoria, on Wednesday (start at 7.30pm).
The previous seven meetings have seen the honours shared, with three wins apiece for each side and a single draw.
Six of the seven games have come in the semifinals.
The teams played to a 1-1 draw in the first-leg of this year’s semis as Thamsanqa Gabuza gave SuperSport the lead, only for Gaston Sirino to equalise a minute later. Both goals came in the first-half.
In the three matches played at Sundowns, the home side have won two of those to one for SuperSport. Those three games have produced eight goals, a little less than three per game.
