Richards Bay vs Golden Arrows predictions

Prediction 1: Less Than Three Goals

This fixture has not been a particularly high-scoring one in the few times the two sides have met. As a matter of fact, only three goals have been scored over two league matches last campaign.

Also, the last eight matches these teams have played in the league have seen just one game have at least three goals.

It's worth knowing that both sides failed to produce at least three goals in their opening match of the league season.

With all these in mind, we're backing this game to be a low-scoring one.

Prediction 2: Both Teams to Score – No

Our second prediction for this match is on one team failing to score. For one, the last two meetings between both teams have seen only one side hitting the back of the net.

Moreso, Richards Bay have failed to score in three of their last four PSL games; while Golden Arrows have also not found the back of the net in two of their last four league games.

Considering how this fixture and how both teams have performed on the goal market in their last couple of games, we're saying this affair will likely see just one team scoring.

Prediction 3: Golden Arrows to Win

It is interesting to know that this tie has seen the away side picking up all three points in the last two meetings between them. We'll also like to point out that the home side have lost three of their last four games. Although it will be a tough match, we are fairly confident Golden Arrows will have a go at all available points.

Richards Bay recent form

Kaitano Thembe's side finished the league last season in 13th place, four points away from the dropzone.

They kicked off their new campaign with a 2-0 loss against Supersport and will be hoping to get their first point(s).
