The 2018 Nedbank Cup got under way with blockbuster between Bidvest Wits and Cape Town City in Johannesburg rain. City won all three previous meetings against wits this season.
The Blue and Gold Army asked early questions through Ayanda Patosi , City Coach Benni McCarthy handed new signing Mathew Rusike a debut and was just a minute of football played, the Zimbabwean was expertly picked out by Teko Modise to make the score 1-0.
Wits looked for an immediately response, great work by James Keene set up Sifo Myeni who placed his effort over the bar. Wits dominated the position stats, they have more of the ball but their effort on goal were not threating. City led by a goal at the break.
The Clever boys started the second as they ended at the first stanza, the goal line clear however denied Dalian Daylon Claasen, as the clock went down the students were frustrated.
The Braamfontien outfit created shooting opportunities but it didn’t trouble Shu-Aib Walters in City’s goal as Gabadinho mhango fired wide, full time approach wits threw bodies in the area, but Walter remained alert.
1-o is how things ended, City advance to the next round, with a fourth win over wits this season.
