Hello and welcome to Phakaaathi’s live coverage of tonight’s Absa Premiership derby between Cape Town City and Ajax Cape Town.
City have made a good start to the new season, especially for a side that was only created just in time for the new campaign. Ajax have not won a match yet this season, but will want to show who is boss in the Cape.
