With the host team unbeaten and potentially finding their best line up for today, it is hard to predict anything other than victory.
With the balance of power very much in Tupapa Maraerenga’s favour for the second clash between the two sides, the effort and will of Takuvaine to pick up an important three points will prove a tough task.
Takuvaine do have the ability to cause some problems for the host.
Takuvaine are no pushovers, and coach Tave Tereapii knows that if his strikers don’t convert created chances, they will again remain a “nearly” side.
They will be hoping to turn up the pressure on the black and white uniform.
Both sides have excellent attacking players, so you should expect an entertaining game in which both teams will provide an abundance of attacking pressure to serve up an enticing spectacle.
It promises to be another thriller at the CIFA Complex, and this match is really anyone’s guess.
Emotions will be running high once more.
The win will hand either team a massive boost in finishing top of the Round cup competition points table.
Saturday's result could have important implications at the end of the season, should the top three remain as close as they are now.
Note the Tupapa Maraerenga vs Takuvaine fixture has had a change of venue due to heavy rain. These matches will now be played at the CIFA Complex in Matavera.
