Sekhukhune United vs Diables Noirs stats and predictions

It's important to point out that both teams lost their respective CAF Confederations Cup openers. While Sekhukhune United lost by two unreplied goals at RS Berkane, Diables Noirs suffered a 3-1 loss at home to Stade Malien.

With that in mind, this game is a must-win for both teams if they intend to advance to the next round. These are our predictions for Sekhukhune United vs Diables Noirs:

Prediction 1: Diables Noirs not to lose

Although Sekhukhune United are the favourites to win this match, their recent form doesn't inspire a lot of confidence. The hosts lost four of their last five matches, which prompted them to part ways with head coach Brandon Truter.

To be fair, Diables Noirs lost their opener last week. However, they were unbeaten in eight prior games, with five wins and three draws. We expect both teams to give everything they have to win this match. Taking everything into consideration, we don't think Diables Noirs will lose this game.

Prediction 2: BTTS – no

We've pointed out that Sekhukhune United lost four of their last five matches. Those recent struggles were due, in part, to their lack of goals. Lehlohonolo Seema's men did not score in four of their last five matches.

That said, Sekhukhune United's games have mostly been one-sided in goal-scoring terms; as both teams managed to score in just one of their last eight games. Considering Diables Noirs kept three clean sheets in their last four matches, we are fairly confident that one of these teams will not score.

Prediction 3: Less than three total goals

Our last Sekhukhune United vs Diables Noirs prediction is on the over/under goals market. Considering Sekhukhune United's struggles in front of goal, it's no surprise that they've been involved in a lot of low-scoring matches.

As a matter of fact, the hosts saw eight of their last nine games go below the 2.5 goal threshold. Similarly, three of Diables Noirs' last four matches featured less than three goals. On that note, this will likely be a low-scoring game.
