AmaZulu wing back Tsweu Mokoro who spent some productive time at SuperSport before moving to Swallows believes the team from Tshwane has the edge.
"From what I have observed of Swallows in their last game they tend to struggle with the long balls and SuperSport are the masters of that because they have tall players.
"I expect SuperSport to take advantage of that Swallows weakness and win this cup though it will surely be a difficult game that will eventually finish 2-0. Remember SuperSport just recently won the Nedbank Cup at Orlando so that gives them an extra edge," says Mokoro.
Retired midfielder Maimane Phiri believes Matsantsantsa will simply clip the wings of the Birds.
"SuperSport obviously has the upper hand based on the form book and I am putting my money on them to win it on a slim score of 1-0.
"Since a Final is a once off game it is guaranteed that it will be a very close game," notes Phiri who spent his last year in the professional ranks at SuperSport who he had joined after a spell at Swallows.
Towering forward Lungisani Ndlela, whose career took off in The Birds Nest before he them moved to the capital city, also says his former team in blue and white are the better of the two.
"I go for a SuperSport win because they are simply the better team with good players that trust each other. It will end 3-2 in favour of SuperSport," says Ndlela.
Another gangling forward who has played for both clubs Mame Niang shares the same sentiments that SuperSport will win.
"They (SuperSport) are much stronger and more organised defensively plus have a better team all round. SuperSport have not been conceding as much as Swallows so they have one hand on the trophy based on that," says Niang, who is now at Tuks.
