Black Leopards were forced into the playoffs in agonizing circumstances after losing to Mamelodi Sundowns on the final day of the ABSA Premiership. The Sundowns win secured the Brazilians them a third successive league title after Baroka FC forced a 1-1 draw against Kaizer Chiefs.
Ajax Cape Town is the 1.45 favourite in the betting to win this match, with Black Leopards paying 1.90. The draw is priced at 2.10.
The Gladafrica is the second tier of South African football and the Urban Warriors finished second after the league, despite having one more win than top-placed Moroka Swallows.
The Black Leopards have to regroup quickly for this contest with caretaker coach Mongezi Bobe admitting his players were ready to head home and had expected Baroka to lose to the Chiefs.
“Frustration, you can imagine packing your luggage preparing to go home and this happens,” he said.
“It is going to be a difficult one [because] we did not want to go to the play-offs. It is going to be tough. Mentally we have to be strong.
“The players have to be strong. It will be tough but we are going to fight.”
