Sofapaka vs Police comes up this weekend with the latter looking to consolidate their position on the league table, while Sofapaka needs a lifeline to avoid the drop.

Sofapaka, who finished in tenth place last season, has found the going arduous this term. They are without a win after six matches and are bottom of the FKF Premier League table.

Batoto ba Mungu need to start winning to navigate through the miry waters of relegation.

Police FC will fancy their chances against a side struggling to find its feet. On paper, it should be three easy points for the Makarao.

What are your expectations of the Sofapaka vs Police FC tie? In this piece, we’ll try and simplify it.

Sofapaka vs Police Predictions

Over 1.5

Sofapaka vs Police should see a few goals. While Police FC have kept three clean sheets this season, Sofapaka have conceded in every game they have played this term.

Of the six games they have played, Sofapaka has scored in only three games. They have not scored more than one goal per game. Sofapaka has an average of 0.5 goals per match.

It is a poor record in the FKF Premier League, and unless there is a dramatic change of fortunes, it should continue.

Police FC to keep a clean sheet

Police FC has managed three clean sheets this term. All three games have come against sides in the top ten. Minus Posta Rangers, the other two sides they conceded against, are in the lower rungs of the table.

However, Police FC have shown they can hold their own against any side in the league. Against a misfiring Sofapaka, the Makarao should at least manage it.

In the last five encounters between these two sides, Sofapaka has two wins and draws, with Police FC managing just one win.

Police got their first win over the Batoto ba Mungu this year. It was a comprehensive 3-0 win. Considering the win is not too long ago, it should buoy the Makarao to go for another victory.

However, it is not as straightforward as it sounds, with Sofapaka looking to get their boat on an even keel.

Sofapaka vs Police should make for curious viewing.
