The Mother City team have a game in hand and will go top of the table with a win at the FNB stadium in tonight’s 19:30 kickoff.

Form and picks

Both sides have started the campaign relatively well, although Pirates have battled to find fluency and only hit the back of the net 3 times in 4 outings. Cape Town City will hope to shrug off last week’s disappointing loss to another Soweto giant, Kaizer Chiefs, and get back into the winning habit to propel themselves to the top of the standings. is offering 2.05 on the draw which is a smart call in a tussle between two good sides gunning for top honours in South Africa.
