Mamelodi Sundowns vs Pyramids stats and predictions

It's important to point out that both teams kicked off their respective campaigns with a victory, then proceeded to lose their second game. After the first two rounds of results, all four teams in Group A are tied with three points. With that in mind, these are our Mamelodi Sundowns vs Pyramids predictions:

Prediction 1: Mamelodi Sundowns to win

Mamelodi Sundowns have been a force to be reckoned with these past few months. They have a perfect 10 wins from 10 in the Premier Soccer League, and have four wins in their last five matches. Also, Masandawana won the inaugural African Football League title less than a month ago.

While the Pyramids have done fairly well this season, they haven't particularly enjoyed their best form in recent weeks. Jaime Pacheco's men suffered three losses in their last six games across all competitions, with two wins and a draw. Considering the Sundowns have the advantage of playing at home, we believe they'll come out on top when it's all said and done.

Prediction 2: At least one team will fail to score

We've already established that Masandawana won four of their last five matches. A solid defense has been the cornerstone of their recent success. Rhulani Mokwena‘s men kept four clean sheets in that five-game stretch, allowing just one goal in the process.

It may interest you to know that both teams managed to score in just one of Mamelodi Sundowns' last 10 games across all competitions. On that note, we shouldn't expect goals at both ends.

Prediction 3: Over 2.5 total goals

Our final Mamelodi Sundowns vs Pyramids prediction is on the over/under goals market. Considering how Masandawana's defense has performed recently, it's no surprise that they've been involved in a lot of low-scoring matches.

In fact, the Sundowns saw eight of their last 10 games go below the 2.5 goal threshold. Taking into account that five of Pyramids' last six matches featured less than three goals, we are fairly confident that this will be a low-scoring match.
