Cape Town City vs Sekhukhune United predictions

Prediction 1: Cape Town City to win

It's worth mentioning that Sekhukhune United have been going through a rough patch lately; they are coming off back-to-back losses, and have four losses in their last five matches across all competitions. To be fair, Cape Town City aren't particularly enjoying their best form at the moment. However, they've fared relatively better than today's opponents, with four wins in their last six matches.

Additionally, Cape Town City are unbeaten in the last three skirmishes between these teams, with two wins and a draw. Considering they also have the advantage of playing at home, we are leaning towards Cape Town City for the victory.

Prediction 2: One team to keep a clean sheet

Previous clashes between Cape Town City and Sekhukhune United have been one-sided when it comes to goals. In fact, these teams squared off against each other on four occasions, and both teams managed to score in just one of those encounters. Furthermore, at least one team blanked in six of Cape Town City's last seven games, and in three of Sekhukhune United's last four matches. All things considered, we shouldn't expect goals at both ends.

Prediction 3: Under 2.5 total goals

Our last Cape Town City vs Sekhukhune United prediction is on the over/under goals market. It's fair to point out that three of four previous skirmishes between these sides featured less than three goals. In like manner, Cape Town City have been involved in a lot of low-scoring matches; as six of their last five matches went below the 2.5 goal mark. Taking everything into account, this will likely be a low-scoring affair.
