Struggling Stellenbosch will be hoping to pull off an upset when they welcome high-flying AmaZulu in the upcoming league round. It’s 12th vs 3rd and the home crowd will have moderate expectations.
These are busy days for the home team, as they were in action only three days ago in the Premier League. That game was an away game at Kaizer Chiefs, so at least Stellenbosch are thankful to return home in this one. Game on!
These teams have little in common geographically as AmaZulu have to travel 1600 kilometers to reach their opponents. The trip home will be especially long if the match ends in defeat.
