PLS: Matchweek 23

Massive weekend in the PSL, check out how the Left Winger sees this round playing out!!

Maritzburg United vs Stellenbosch

It’s usually a close game between these two teams – the first round league encounter ended 0 – 0 and the Nedbank Cup game earlier this month was 2 – 2 before United won on penalties. Home advantage could give the boys in blue the advantage here.

Prediction: 2 – 1

Golden Arrows vs Highlands Park

This one is 8th vs 7th with both teams on 30 points, so not much to separate them. Highlands are on a good run of form (5 games unbeaten) but conditions down in Durban will be slippery. Highlands have scored in each of their last 6 games, so there’s a “team to score in 2nd half” tip.

Prediction: 2 – 1

Orlando Pirates vs Kaizer Chiefs

Who bets on the Soweto Derby? EVERYONE. It has become as much of a social event as a match and there will be drama, on and off the pitch. Chiefs are top of the log but seem to have lost all the intensity to their play, whilst Pirates are the form team. “Penalty awarded” tip: the last 3 games between these two have seen at least 1 penalty awarded.

Prediction: 2 – 1

Chippa United vs AmaZulu

Chippa has had the best of Usuthu in their recent encounters. They are 12th on the log compared to their opponents rock-bottom 16th but only 2 points above them, so it won’t be plain sailing but AmaZulu are on a run of just one win in their last 5 and we don’t see that stat improving here.

Prediction: 2 – 0

SuperSport Utd vs Bidvest Wits

SuperSport have won only 1 of their last 5 vs Wits – but that was the first round league game in November 2019, so that’s perhaps a useless stat that we’ve given you. This will be a physical game so look at an over/under cards bet.

Prediction: 1 – 2
