Amazulu vs Mamelodi Sundowns stats and predictions
As it stands, Mamelodi Sundowns are leading the Premier Soccer League (PSL) standings ahead of this clash. They are 10 spots ahead of Amazulu, who have accumulated 15 points from 12 league games. That said, these are our Amazulu vs Mamelodi Sundowns predictions:
Prediction 1: Mamelodi Sundowns to win
We would like to point out that Amazulu are coming off back-to-back losses, conceding four times in the process. They've managed just three wins in 12 league games this season.
On the other hand, Mamelodi Sundowns have been by far the best team in the PSL this season. Although they've played at least three fewer games than every other team in the league, Masandawana are currently at the top of the table.
Rhulani Mokwena‘s men have a perfect nine wins from nine in the Premier Soccer League. For this reason, we believe they'll maintain that 100 percent record with a victory here.
Prediction 2: Both teams not to score
We've established that Mamelodi Sundowns have nine wins in as many league matches. It may also interest you to know that they've had the best defense in the PSL.
Masandawana allowed just three goals in nine league games so far; they kept seven clean sheets in their last nine matches across all competitions. Considering both teams managed to score in just one of the Sundowns' last nine games; coupled with the fact that Amazulu failed to score in four of the last six encounters between these teams, we shouldn't expect goals at both ends.
Prediction 3: Less than three total goals
For our third Amazulu vs Mamelodi Sundowns prediction, let's take a look at the over/under goals market. Given how solid Masandawana have been defensively, it's not surprising that their games tend to be on the low-scoring side.
Mokwena's men saw seven of their last nine matches go below the 2.5 goal threshold. In the same vein, four of the last six skirmishes between these sides featured less than three goals; and on that note, this should be a low-scoring game.
