The Lamontville Golden Arrows will make the trip to the Lucas Moripe Stadium on Tuesday, as they take on league leaders Mamelodi Sundowns. Which of these teams will reign supreme at the end of this Premier Soccer League (PSL) match?

Mamelodi Sundowns vs Golden Arrows probable lineups

Mamelodi Sundowns

Goalkeeper: Ronwen Williams.
Defenders: Mothobi Mvala, Mosa Lebusa, Abdelmounaim Boutouil.
Midfielders: Khuliso Mudau, Marcelo Allende, Teboho Mokoena, Thapelo Maseko.
Strikers: Peter Shalulile, Lucas Ribeiro, Themba Zwane.

Rulani Mokwena will not be able to call upon the services of Rivaldo Coetzee. The 26 year old defender received a straight red in Masandawana's opening match, and is suspended for this match. The Brazilians are expected to line up in a 3-4-3 formation today.

Golden Arrows

Goalkeeper: Ismail Watenga.
Defenders: Bradley Cross, Themba Mantshiyane, Gladwin Shitolo, Siyavuya Ndlovu.
Midfielders: Sazi Gumbi, Velemseni Ndwandwe, Angelo Van Rooi, Knox Mutizwa, Siyanda Mthanti.
Strikers: Ryan Moon.

The Golden Arrows will likely adopt a 4-2-3-1 formation for this clash, with Ryan Moon leading the attack. It's worth mentioning that Teboho Moutlong is still ruled out for the visitors, due to an injury he picked up in their season opener a couple of weeks ago.

Mamelodi Sundowns vs Lamontville Golden Arrows predictions

1. Mamelodi Sundowns to win

We would like to point out that the Lamontville Golden Arrows have struggled against today's opponents in the past. They suffered four losses in the last five skirmishes between these teams, and have no wins in their last 10 encounters with Mamelodi Sundowns.

This will be a tricky fixture for Mabhuti Khenyeza's side, as their opponents are currently on a six-match winning streak, and have no losses in 14 games. Taking everything into account, we are backing the hosts to take all three points from this match.

2. Mamelodi Sundowns to score first

Our second Mamelodi Sundowns vs Lamontville Golden Arrows prediction is on the ‘first team to score' market. We've already established that Masandawana have no losses in their last 10 clashes with the Golden Arrows.

It may also interest you to know that they opened the scoring in four of the last five clashes between these sides. In the same vein, the Sundowns drew first blood in all of their last eight games; and for this reason, we believe they'll register the first goal in this match.

3. Both teams to score

It's worth mentioning that despite their fine form, Mamelodi Sundowns have conceded their fair share of goals lately. Rulani Mokwena's side have seen their defense breached seven times in their last eight matches in all competitions.

Interestingly, both teams were on the scoresheet in four of Mamelodi Sundowns' last five games, and also in both of Lamontville's league matches so far. That said, we should expect goals at both ends.

Mamelodi Sundowns recent form

Mamelodi Sundowns defeated Moroka Swallows by a lone goal last weekend; they have won six matches in a row, across all competitions, and are unbeaten in their last 14 games.

Rulani Mokwena will look to steer his team to their seventh consecutive victims as they host the Lamontville Golden Arrows.

Golden Arrows recent form

Like today's opponents, the Golden Arrows have put up a fairly decent run of results lately; as they are unbeaten in their last five matches, with two wins and three draws.

As Mabhuti Khenyeza's men visit the Lucas Moripe Stadium, it'll be interesting to see if they can snap their winless streak against the Mamelodi Sundowns.
