Pyramids vs Mamelodi Sundowns stats and predictions
We would like to point out that all four teams in the CAF Champions League Group A are tied at four points. However, Mamelodi Sundowns are leading the standings due to their positive goal difference, while Pyramids find themselves at the bottom of the table. that said, these are our Pyramids vs Mamelodi Sundowns predictions:
Prediction 1: Mamelodi Sundowns to win
This is an interesting pick, considering these teams met just over a week ago, and Mamelodi Sundowns were unable to win at home. However, Masandawana have fared a lot better than their opponents in recent weeks.
On one hand, Pyramids have no wins in their last three matches; they managed just two wins in their last eight games across all competitions. In contrast, Mamelodi Sundowns have no losses in their last three matches. They won five of their last seven games, with a draw and a loss. Taking everything into account, we're leaning towards the visitors for the victory.
Prediction 2: One team will keep a clean sheet
Our next Pyramids vs Mamelodi Sundowns prediction is on the BTTS market. We would like to point out that these teams played out a goalless draw when they met in the reverse fixture earlier this month.
Rhulani Mokwena's side have been able to rely on their stingy defense, which allowed just one goal in their last seven matches. It may interest you to know what both teams managed to score in just one of Masandawana's last seven matches. In the same vein, Pyramids failed to score in two of their last three matches; and for this reason, we shouldn't expect goals at both ends.
Prediction 3: Less than three total goals
We've established that no goals were scored when these teams met just over a week ago. It's also noteworthy that both teams have been involved in a few low-scoring matches lately. Four of Masandawana's last five matches went south of the 2.5 goal marker, six of Pyramids' last eight games too. For this reason, we are taking the under 2.5 goals option.
Our final #TotalEnergiesCAFCL match of the year, let's go all out! 🏆
