Cape Town City battle Chippa United for a spot in the Nedbank Cup quarter-finals at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium on Sunday.
Chippa progressed to the last 16 with a 4-3 penalty shoot-out victory over GladAfrica Championship side Free State Stars at home.
The Citizens didn’t need to go that route as a hat-trick from Tashreeq Morris led to a 4-0 thumping over Bloemfontein Celtic.
Dan Malesela’s side head into this knockout fixture on the back of two successive draws in the DStv Premiership against Bloemfontein Celtic and Chippa United.
Regarding the Citizens, a 1-1 draw at home to Swallows FC last Sunday extended their winless run of form to three matches in the league.
Malesela face the Citizens with a suspension in defender Isaac Nhlapo, while the first battle between the two sides this season in the league finished 1-1.
