SuperSport United take on Dynamos in what promises to be yet another evenly matched SAA Supa 8 fixture at Loftus Stadium on Sunday.
SuperSport United take on Dynamos in what promises to be yet another evenly matched SAA Supa 8 fixture at Loftus Stadium on Sunday. But that is something to be expected from a competition that pits South Africa's best eight teams against each other.
SuperSport have proven that they are a very consistent outfit after finishing second to both Orlando Pirates and Santos in their last two Premier Soccer League (PSL) campaigns.
The Pretoria club has one of the PSL's top coaches, Pitso Mosimane, at the helm. Mosimane has helped transform the club from a mid table team into one that is capable of challenging for top honours in Africa as well as in this country.
The make-up of the squad has remained very constant for a few seasons now, allowing the players to develop a good understanding amongst each other. Striker Daniel Matsau (Hellenic) and midfielder Frank Makua, who will be playing against his former club, have been the only additions to the Matsatsanta A Pitori team.
Dynamos have also proven that they are not just in the PSL to make up the numbers, having finished in a very credible seventh place after having actually found themselves in the running for the title up until the last couple of weeks of the season.
As proven in the voting for the Charity Cup competition as well as the crowd attendances last season, Dynamos and Black Leopards have a huge following up in the Limpopo province.
Owner Pat Malabela has signaled his intentions to take his club to new heights with the signing of experienced PSl players such as Gerald Raphahlela (Pirates), Mukeba Mulemba (Bush Bucks), Jossias Macamo (on loan from Chiefs) and Alex Bapela from Sundowns.
So Dynamos will also be fancying their chances of becoming the first team to win the new SAA trophy (especially with the elimination of Chiefs and Pirates), but they will first face a stern test on Sunday when they travel to Loftus.
