Cape Town City will look to extend Kaizer Chiefs’ frustration in the Absa Premiership when the teams meet at the Cape Town Stadium on 15 September 2018, kick-off at 15h00 CAT.
City come into the game having played to a 2-2 draw away to Free State Stars in their last league outing. The Cape side needed winger Craig Martin to force a last-gasp equaliser in Bethlehem as they record a second successive draw.
The Citizens have picked up four points from their two home matches so far this season, beating SuperSport United 2-0 and drawing 0-0 with Golden Arrows.
Chiefs’ saw their winless start to the league season extended to five matches when they allowed Bloemfontein Celtic to come from two goals down and claim a 2-2 draw in Soweto on August 19.
The Amakhosi have drawn all three away matches thus far in the campaign, holding Mamelodi Sundowns (1-1), Baroka FC (1-1) and Maritzburg United (0-0).
In head-to-head stats, City and Chiefs have met in four league matches since 2016/17. The Amakhosi have claimed two wins compared to one for the Citizens, while one game has been drawn. The Cape Town side has recorded one win and one loss from two matches as hosts in the rivalry.
Chiefs completed a league ‘double’ over City last season, winning 2-0 away thanks to goals from Siphiwe Tshabalala and Wiseman Meyiwa, and 1-0 at home with a strike from Ryan Moon.
