JOHANNESBURG - Ajax Cape Town will host Mamelodi Sundowns in an Absa Premiership encounter at Cape Town Stadium on Tuesday night with three points and the last laugh up for grabs.
Downs, who currently top the league table found themselves knee-deep in smack talk from the Urban Warriors on Tuesday morning.
The Cape side took aim at Sundowns on Monday on the back of midfielder Samuel Julies' transfer from Chippa United.
Ajax, who sit second from the bottom, carved out a bit of a reputation in 2016, and took a jab at Sundowns:

Needless to say, the jab did not go unnoticed on social media and quickly went viral with Masandawana caught completely unaware.
