Cape Town - Bidvest Wits and Ajax Cape Town will both aim to get their 2015/16 Absa Premiership season off to a winning start when they meet at Bidvest Stadium. 

Wits ended last season in third place, with 52 points from their 30 matches.

The Johannesburg side lost just one of their final seven matches of the campaign, and ended with successive wins over champions Kaizer Chiefs and Platinum Stars.

Ajax finished in fifth place last season, recording 44 points from their 30 matches.

The Cape Town side ended the campaign with two losses, two wins and a draw from their final five matches.

In head-to-head stats, Wits and Ajax have met in 30 league matches since 1999/2000.

The record is dead-even, with 10 wins each, while 10 matches have been drawn. The Clever Boys have scored four more goals (31 to 27).

Wits have won six of their 15 home matches against Ajax, suffering three defeats in the process.

Last season the Urban Warriors won 3-1 in Cape Town, while the return match in Johannesburg saw the Clever Boys claim a 4-2 home victory.

The host side has emerged victorious in these teams’ last four successive league matches.

The match is scheduled for Saturday, August 8.

Kick-off is at 20:15.
