Incredibly, with just one match remaining in the 2021/22 DStv Premiership season, only ONE match in next season’s MTN8 has been confirmed!
As a reminder, the top eight teams in the final log of the league season will contest the following season’s MTN8 with the winners taking on the eighth-placed side, second against seventh and so on.
Monday, 30 May’s final match between SuperSport United and Orlando Pirates at the Lucas Moripe Stadium will decide which eight teams make it – and who plays who.
Seven teams have booked their spots with Matsatsanta having to beat the Buccaneers to book their berth, otherwise it will be Golden Arrows who will finish eighth (and take on Mamelodi Sundowns).
Nothing less than the full three points will suffice for SuperSport United (by any margin of victory).
Orlando Pirates could still finish third, fourth, fifth or sixth in the standings and are therefore the reason there is still such uncertainty as to who will face whom.
Sundowns are the MTN8 holders
However, one match has been confirmed.
Cape Town City FC have secured a lucrative second-place finish and will take on AmaZulu who are guaranteed seventh place.
Mamelodi Sundowns are the defending MTN8 champions.
