Cape Town City (16th)
Last three games: LLL
It's strange to see the Citizens rocking the bottom of the log, having finished as a runner-up last season. Although, luck has been against them in the past few games, with narrow defeats in the previous two matches. They deserved more than they are getting; however, we believe they will bounce back, and their fans will be happy again.
One of the best teams in the league last season with forty-nine points in thirty games, they finished below Mamelodi Sundowns in second place. The Citizens also lost the MTN8 final to Sundowns on penalties, giving them a rightful claim to being the second-best side in the country. They hope to go one better this coming season, but how they manage with the extra pressures of a maiden Caf Champions League campaign will be the definitive factor.
The Citizens have lost their first home game this season and failed to score a goal.
Maritzburg United (13th)
Last three games: DLD
Maritzburg have started the season poorly with two points from a possible nine. They are yet to win a single game. The season is still fresh. They must not end the same way they did in the previous season.
Last season was disappointing for the visitor, who wrapped up the season with five points above the relegation zone. They have added some new faces to their squad and hope to finish strong this year.
Maritzburg had one of the worst away forms last season with a win, six draws and eight losses.
