Recently, Sabie Bayern FC (Abasebenzi) travelled to Kanyamazane Stadium for a meeting with Mbombela City lads (Banikati bendzawo) since they qualified for the ABC Motsepe League.

It was the second meeting for both teams since Bayern FC hosted Mbombela city lads in the first quarter of the 2019/2020 season at Bambanani Sports Centre. Mbombela city lads harvested 4 points from Sabie Bayern FC after they first played a draw of 1:1.

Mbombela city lads warmly welcomed Sabie Bayern FC after the away side broke the deadlock with a beautiful set piece 25 yards from the goal poles, all thanks to the home side goalkeeper.  He made an error that awarded Sabelo (no 3), a beautiful goal from the set-piece that only took 15 minutes after the kick-off.

The home side kept the pressure on until it was 5 minutes before the half time break. A beautiful play from Thamsanqa (no18) of Mbombela City lads. He kept his consistency and provided a combination play with his teammate, who both created magic to provide their home side with an equaliser five minutes before the end of the first half.

The second half was hopeless as both sides were not attacking strongly enough, though the away side kept their composure and seemed to have the game under their control. They took shots at goals, showing they need every point they can get from the game as they are trailing behind and trying to avoid the relegation zone. The home side had a brilliant breakthrough to end the game with a beautiful late goal, FT 2:1.
