Kaizer Chiefs vs Cape Town City predictions
Prediction 1: Kaizer Chiefs to win
Although Cape Town City defeated Cape Town Spurs last weekend, their recent form doesn't inspire a lot of confidence. The visitors suffered five losses in their last seven matches across all competitions, with a win and a draw. To be fair, Kaizer Chiefs have had their fair share of struggles lately. However, they've fared relatively better than today's opponents, losing just twice in their last seven matches. Considering Kaizer Chiefs have the advantage of playing at home, we believe they'll take all three points from this match.
Prediction 2: BTTS – no
We've established that Cape Town City have struggled to win matches these past few weeks. Interestingly, they've also found it difficult to score goals. As a matter of fact, Eric Tinkler's men blanked in four of their last six matches. At least one team failed to score in five of Kaizer Chiefs' last eight matches, four of Cape Town City's last six games too. On that note, we shouldn't expect goals at both ends.
Prediction 3: Under 2.5 total goals
Our last Kaizer Chiefs vs Cape Town City prediction is on the over/under goals market. Given that Cape Town City have struggled in front of goal, it's no surprise that their matches have mostly been on the low-scoring side. In fact, nine of Cape Town City's last 12 matches went below the 2.5 goal line, four of Kaizer Chiefs' last six games too. Taking into account that four of the last six skirmishes between these sides featured less than three goals, this will likely be a low-scoring affair.
Kaizer Chiefs recent form
Kaizer Chiefs halted their winless streak with a 2-1 victory over Sekhukhune United. They had no wins in four prior games, with two draws and two losses. Molefi Ntseki will look to steer his team to their second consecutive victory as Cape Town City come visiting.
Cape Town City recent form
Like today's opponents, Cape Town City are coming off a win; as they defeated neighbors Cape Town Spurs in a four-goal thriller last weekend. Eric Tinkler's men will set their sights on all three available points, and they'll fancy their chances against Kaizer Chiefs.
