Moroka Swallows vs Cape Town City predictions
Prediction 1: Cape Town City to win
We would like to point out that Cape Town City kicked off their new PSL campaign with a 1-0 victory over Polokwane last weekend. They are now on a three-match winning streak, with no losses in their last five matches; a run that stretches back to their previous season. To be fair, Moroka Swallows are also unbeaten in their last five games. However, it may interest you to know that Cape Town City have had Moroka Swallows' number in recent years; they have three wins in the last four clashes between these sides, losing just once in their last seven encounters. Taking everything into account, we are leaning towards the visitors for the victory.
Prediction 2: BTTS – No
For our second Moroka Swallows vs Cape Town City prediction, let's take a look at the ‘both teams to score' market. These teams have met a fair few times, and those clashes have mostly been one-sided in goal-scoring terms. In fact, at least one team failed to score in four of the last six meetings between Moroka Swallows and Cape Town City. It's also worth mentioning that Cape Town City did not concede a single goal in their last four matches; considering both teams scored in just two of Moroka Swallows' last nine games, we shouldn't expect goals at both ends.
Prediction 3: Under 2.5 total goals
We've already established that Cape Town City did not concede any goals in their last four matches. That said, it's no surprise that their matches have mostly been low-scoring. As a matter of fact, Cape Town City's last four matches have seen just one goal scored per game on average, and all of those matches went below the 2.5 goal mark. In like manner, seven of Moroka Swallows' last nine games featured less than three goals; and for this reason we are taking the under 2.5 goals option for today's match.
Moroka Swallows recent form
Moroka Swallows played out a 1-1 draw at Lamontville in their season opener last week; and with that in mind, they have no losses in their last five matches across all competitions. Steve Komphela's side will set their sights on their first win of the season as they welcome Cape Town City to the Dobsonville Stadium.
Cape Town City recent form
On the other hand, Cape Town City defeated Polokwane by a lone goal last weekend, extending their winning streak to three games. Eric Tinkler's lads will look to maintain their 100 percent record as they take on Moroka Swallows on Wednesday.
