All eyes will be on the TUT Stadium as Supersport United vs Cape Town City takes place on Friday evening. Which of these teams will go home with all three points at the end of this Premier Soccer League match?

This is how both teams could potentially line up for this clash:

Supersport United vs Cape Town City probable lineups

Supersport United

Goalkeeper: Washington Arubi.
Defenders: Kegan Johannes, Ime Okon, Thulani Hlatswhayo, Ronald Pfumbidzai.
Midfielders: Grant Margeman, Shandre Campbell, Siphesihle Ndlovu.
Strikers: Ghampani Lungu, Thalente Mbatha, Terrence Dzvukamanja.

Although Gavin Hunt used a 4-2-3-1 formation in Supersport United's season opener, he switched to 4-3-3 for their next two matches. The former Kaizer Chiefs manager will be thankful to have a fully healthy group of players to choose from; as there are no player sidelined for Supersport United.

Cape Town City

Goalkeeper: Darren Keet.
Defenders: Thamsanqa Mkhize, Keanu Cupido, Mark Van Heerden.
Midfielders: Jaedin Rhodes, Thato Tsiliso Mokeke, Ambina Fidele Brice, Darwin Gonzalez.
Strikers: Juan Camilo Zapata, Khanyisa Erick Mayo, Taahir Goedeman.

It's important to point out that Cape Town City have played three matches across all competitions this season, and Eric Tinkler fielded the same 11 players in all three games. The former Orlando Pirates manager fancies a 3-4-3 formation, and we believe he'll adopt the same formation for today's game. Taariq Fielies should return to action for the visitors, after serving a three-match suspension for a straight red.

Supersport United vs Cape Town City predictions

Prediction 1: Supersport United to win

We would like to point out that recent clashes between these teams have been a bit one-sided. Supersport United came out on top the last three times these teams squared off against each other; they are also unbeaten in the last four clashes between these teams. Although both teams have had a solid start to their respective Premier Soccer League campaigns, we are leaning towards the hosts for the victory.

Prediction 2: One team to keep a clean sheet

We've already established that Supersport United did not lose any of their last four encounters with Cape Town City. It may also interest you to know that they kept three clean sheets in the last four meetings between these sides. Moreover, at least one team blanked in four of the last five clashes between Supersport United and Cape Town City. Considering this was also the case in all of Supersport United's last six, and five of Cape Town City's last six matches, we shouldn't expect goals at both ends.

Prediction 3: A low-scoring game

We would like to point out that both teams have been involved in a lot of low-scoring matches recently. Cape Town City kept five clean sheets in their last six games; and as a result, those five matches went below the 2.5 goal mark. Likewise, all of Supersport United's last six games featured less than three goals; and on that note, we don't think these teams will score up to three goals between them.

Supersport United vs Cape Town City head to head

This will be the 19th encounter between these teams in the last seven years. Supersport United have six wins in 18 previous skirmishes between these sides, with five draws and seven losses. Interestingly, Supersport United have no losses in their last four meetings with Cape Town City.
