Mamelodi Sundowns vs Supersport United predictions

Prediction 1: Mamelodi Sundowns to win

We'll kick off our Mamelodi Sundowns vs Supersport United predictions by backing the hosts to win.

For one, Masandawana have fared a lot better than their opponents in recent months. While they won five games in a row, Supersport United have no wins in their last four matches.

Additionally, Mamelodi Sundowns have dominated previous encounters between these sides, winning four of their last five meetings.

On that note, anything other than a victory for Masandawana would be a surprise.

Prediction 2: BTTS – no

Supersport United have scored and conceded goals regularly. This is evidenced by the fact that both teams were on the scoresheet in all of their last 11 games.

However, scoring against this Sundowns team is easier said than done. Masandawana did not concede a single goal in their last four matches, they allowed just two goals in their last 12 games.

Bearing in mind that Mamelodi Sundowns kept four clean sheets in the last five encounters between these outfits, we shouldn't expect goals at both ends.

Prediction 3: Under 2.5 total goals

For our final Mamelodi Sundowns vs Supersport United prediction, let's explore the over/under goals market.

It's worth mentioning that recent meetings between these teams were mostly on the low-scoring side, as four of their last five clashes featured less than three goals.

In the same vein, both teams have been involved in a lot of low-scoring matches in recent months. Seven of Masandawana's last nine matches went below the 2.5 goal mark, five of Supersport United's last six games too.

For this reason, we don't think these teams will score up to three goals between them.
