Bloemfontein Celtic come off an astonishing 8-0 win over Stellenbosch University in their Nedbank Cup round 32 encounter. Despite winning in such a sublime manner, Phunya Sele Sele will hope to continue that form in their domestic league, when they go up against Black Aces. Celtic lost their previous league match 3-0 to the mighty AmaKhosi and played out to a goalless draw with Platinum Stars prior to that.

Phunya Sele Sele currently reside in tenth position on the PSL table with 23 points, a win for the home side will boost them into the top eight. While Black Aces are on 23 points as well and a win for them would also see them rise into the top eight.

Amazayoni has been knocked out of their Nedbank Cup campaign, however, they won their previous two domestic league encounters to AmaZulu and Maritzburg United respectively. Aces has not done that well, playing away from home this campaign, they’ve only managed one win away in eight matches.

Celtic mentor Ernst Middendorp will display a meticulous approach and will not underestimate the PSL new comers. Middendorp is well aware that Aces play a well-structured passing game and will look to dominate possession. An interesting match-up awaits the two teams, although, when they met earlier in the season the match ended in one goal apiece.
