We take a closer look at the head-to-head results between Ajax Cape Town and their next Absa Premiership opponents, Free State Stars.
The teams will meet on Friday evening at Athlone Stadium for what will be their 28th league clash overall.
The previous 27 games have seen Stars claim 13 wins compared to seven for Ajax, while seven matches have finished all square – including a 1-1 draw in the teams’ most recent meeting back in November last year.
While Ea Lla Koto have an overall advantage over the Urban Warriors, when we narrow our scope to matches played in Cape Town it is the coastal side which has tended to come out on top.
Ajax have claimed seven wins from 13 matches as hosts against Stars, suffering just three defeats in the process.
The Urban Warriors have won their last six successive home league matches against Stars, a run which started back in 2010/11 with a 1-0 victory and runs right up to last season’s 2-1 triumph, which featured goals from Mosa Lebusa and Prince Nxumalo.
