Cape Town City v Polokwane City

Cape Town City will be looking to get their MTN title defence off to a winning start when they host Polokwane City at the Newlands rugby stadium on Saturday.

City will go into the clash in confident mood having notched up their first victory of the season when they beat Stellenbosch FC 1-0 in a Cape derby last weekend.

The Citizens beat Supersport United 4-1 on penalties to win the trophy last season in what was the first piece of silverware for coach Benni McCarthy in just his second season in charge.

Polokwane suffered their first defeat of the season on Wednesday when they went down by a single goal against Wits in an Absa Premiership encounter.

Rise and Shine though won their previous two games and will go to the Mother City with plenty in the tank as they seek to emulate a last campaign when they finished fifth in the PSL.

It will only be the second time the team from Limpopo will participate in the MTN 8 having been downed in the quarterfinals in 2017.

The game kicks off at 15:00.
