Free State Stars host SuperSport United in the Premiership at Goble Park on Saturday.
The last time these two sides faces each other SuperSport emerged as winners in a thrilling five-goal thriller, while Stars defeated Matsatsantsa in the previous tie.
Ea Lla Koto have endured a difficult run of late, last beating Bloemfontein Celtic, ahead of a two draws and one league and one cup loss – last going down 3-1 to Mamelodi Sundowns.
SuperSport, meanwhile, come into this game on the back of a 1-0 loss to Kaizer Chiefs, following an indifferent run of three draws and a penalty shootout Telkom Knockout win over Polokwane City.
Just two points separates Kaitano Tembo’s side with Luc Eymael’s charges, with SuperSport on 15 points in seventh, and Stars on 13 in eighth place.
Overall, in 44 league matches since 1991, Matsatsantsa have won 15 times, with Stars winning 10, as 19 matches ended in a draw.
