A look at some of the important facts and figures as Saturday evening’s MTN8 final between Bidvest Wits and Mamelodi Sundowns in Mbombela draws ever nearer...

0 – Bidvest Wits coach Gavin Hunt has won every major trophy in his managerial career, but never the Top 8.

1 – Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane has on one occasion won the Top 8 – he claimed the 2004 SAA Supa 8 trophy with SuperSport United.

1 – Both teams have only conceded one goal in the three matches played to reach the final.

5 – The number of goals Bidvest Wits have tallied so far in the competition.

14 – The total number of goals scored in this year’s MTN8 - an average of 1.75 goals per game, or a goal every 51 minutes.
