Chippa United vs Mamelodi Sundowns predictions

Prediction 1: Less Than Three Goals

Considering Chippa United scored just once in their last five matches, it's no surprise that we're taking the under 2.5 goals option for this clash. Chippa were resolute at the back with four of their last matches going under 2.5 and three of those skirmishes ended goalless. Also, it is worth mentioning that four of the last six meetings between Chippa and Sundowns featured less than three goals.

Prediction 2: Both Teams to Score – No

Chippa United did not score in four of their last five games, they did not also score in three of their last four meetings with the Sundowns. We'll like to point out that Masandawana did not concede in their last two games, all these facts bear towards one thing, a situation where just one team gets to score in this clash.

Prediction 3: Mamelodi Sundowns to Win

The PSL defending champions have won seven straight games and no losses in their last 15. They've registered no losses in 10 clashes with Chippa United (eight wins and two draws). On the other hand, Chippa have no wins in their last five matches and have only picked up two draws in the last ten encounters with the league leaders. With all these in mind, we expect nothing less than a win for Sundowns.

Chippa United vs Mamelodi Sundowns head to head

Chippa United have not had the best of results in this fixture. As a matter of fact, Morgan Mammila's team have only picked two wins out of 20 matches played between them since 2015. Meanwhile, Sundowns have won 13 times, with five games ending in stalemates.
