The game at the Lucas Moripe Stadium kicks off at 20H15, with the second leg set for the Harry Gwala Stadium on Saturday 9 September.
Last season saw Matsatsansta getting the better of the PMB team, with 4-1 and 1-0 wins, while in 22 head-to-head encounters Maritzburg have won just two (SuperSport 13), a record they’ll be looking to set straight over the next few weeks!
Fadlu Davids' men approach the match in a confident mood, having won all three of their matches in the new season (1-0 v Mamelodi Sundowns, and 2-0 v both Platinum Stars and Ajax Cape Town).
Maritzburg striker Evans Rusike has been off to a blistering start to the season with three goals in three games. There has been able support from the likes of Lebohang Maboe, Deolin Mekoa, Siphesihle Ndlovu and Fortune Makaringe to name but a few, not to mention three consecutive clean sheets.
SuperSport meanwhile beat Kaizer Chiefs in both the league and the MTN8, but lost 0-2 to Sundowns in an Absa Premiership match. The likes of Jeremy Brockie, Aubrey Modiba and Bradley Grobler will be keeping the Team of Choice defenders on their toes in what promising to be a thriller in Tshwane.
