Despite struggling against Cape Town City soon after the Mother City outfit was formed in 2016, Kaizer Chiefs have shown great dominance in recent years.
Amakhosi have won five of their last six competitive matches against the Citizens, including that big 4-1 victory last season.
Telkom Knockout Cup titles
Kaizer Chiefs have won more Telkom Knockout Cup titles than any professional side in the history of the competition.
The Glamour Boys have a whopping 13 titles in their cabinet, with their last triumph coming in 2010 when they successfully defended their crown in Durban.
Cape Town City have won the Cup just once, but impressively, this was during the first few months of their formation in 2016.
Contrasting FormCape Town City have had a terrible start to the current campaign with no win in their last six competitive matches (W0, D4, L2) while Kaizer Chiefs have improved tremendously this season with four wins, one draw and a single defeat in their last six matches.
Last Cup final
Cape Town City last played in a Cup final in 2018 when they beat SuperSport United to lift the MTN8 trophy.
Kaizer Chiefs, on the other hand, last made it to a Cup final in 2019 but suffered a narrow 1-0 loss to minnows TS Galaxy.
Who leads the goalscoring charts?Former Cape Town City captain Lebogang Manyama goes into this encounter as Amakhosi's leading goalscorer with three goals but his counterpart Kermit Erasmus has been in fine form as he has already found the back of the net on five occasions this season.
