A Kaizer Chiefs versus Cape Town City clash is always one interesting to watch.
It’s fast paced and there are goals. In a game of this nature, a lot of players lift up their game.
#FARPost looks at players from both camps that could be standout performers during today’s game that plays out from FNB Stadium (15:00).
With 7 goals from 12 matches, the Colombian has some real firepower upfront for the Absa Premiership log leaders. Castro gives a 100% commitment throughout the 90 minutes, which means he’s likely to score at any minute which augurs well for Chiefs in their title pursuit.
Not only does ‘Tower’ provide great cover at the back, but he goes up for the set pieces and that’s why he’s able to get a goal now and then (he has 3 goals in 16 matches this season).
Kermit Erasmus is coming and Akpeyi will have to be alert at all times. To his credit, the Nigerian keeper has done fairly well this season, especially because he had to recover from horrendous mistakes to become a great wall for Chiefs.
CAPE TOWN CITY
He was Man of the Match the last time City played Chiefs in Gauteng and won 1-0. The Dutchman will be expected to again produce a similar performance.
With 5 assists in 17 matches, the winger is able to create some chances for his teammates. Look out for him.
Erasmus always seem to get on the scoresheet against Chiefs. It’s on that basis that Chiefs have to watch out.
