SuperSport United v Cape Town City – click here to bet
SuperSport booked their spot in the final with a 3-1 aggregate victory over Maritzburg United. They were particularly impressive in the 2nd leg at Maritzburg winning 2-0. They also beat Kaizer Chiefs 1-0 away in the quarter-finals. They are currently sitting 10th in the PSL standings but have a number of games in hand over most of the teams above them.
Cape Town City were very impressive in beating Bidvest Wits 3-1 on aggregate in the last 4. They won the 1st leg 1-0 at home before beating the reigning PSL Champions 2-1 away. City saw off Polokwane 1-0 at home in the quarter-finals. They currently sit 3rd on the PSL log but with a game in hand over the two sides above them.
These sides met twice in the League last season with SuperSport winning at home and the sides playing to a 1-1 draw in Cape Town and they also met in the Telkom Knock-Out Final with Cape Town City winning 2-1.
SuperSport United 18/10
Cape Town City 14/10
Suggested Bet: The draw at 22/10
These sides look very evenly matched and I wouldn’t be surprised if we were all level at the end of regulation time. At the time of writing there were no Exotic Markets out but I would be interested in the price that only one of the teams or none score as that has been the case in the last 3 MTN 8 Finals.
If you do fancy one of the teams to win the game then the MTN 8 Final promotion on the banner below is nice insurance against a penalty shoot out loss.
