Our Cape Town City v AmaZulu predictions, statistics and match poll can be seen below - as well as up-to-date odds.
Cape Town City
Cape Town City will be looking for a repeat result of a 3-0 Premier Division victory against TTM.
Their most recent results shine a light on the fact that huge efforts have been put in by the Cape Town City rearguard. Blue and Gold Army have given the opposition little, resulting in the number of goals that have gone past their goalkeeper during their last 6 games standing at 4. With no two games being the same, it remains to be seen if the trend will be maintained in this next match.
A look at their previous results shows us that Cape Town City:
- haven't lost in the league to AmaZulu in their last 2 games.
- haven't beaten AmaZulu in their last 4 league matches.
- are unbeaten in their previous 3 league matches at home.
AmaZulu go into this meeting following on from a 2-1 Premier Division win with the eclipse of TS Galaxy in their last fixture.
A run of outstanding performances by the AmaZulu defenders has seen the number of goals they’ve conceded amounting to 1 from their past 6 clashes overall. Over that same time, the number of goals that they have scored themselves is 7.
Coming into this clash, AmaZulu are unbeaten in their previous 9 away league matches. Impressive, to say the least.
Head to head
Looking at their past head to head meetings going back to 12/05/2018 tells us that Cape Town City have won 1 of these games and AmaZulu 3, with the tally of drawn games being 2.
A sum of 14 goals were scored between them in these games, with 7 of them for Blue and Gold Army and 7 coming from Usuthu. That’s an average goals per game of 2.33.
Team News: Cape Town City
Nearly everyone is up for selection, with just the sole fitness concern for the Cape Town City manager Benni McCarthy to be concerned with thanks to an otherwise robust group of players. Edmilson Dove (Knee Surgery) is sidelined.
Team News: AmaZulu
Thanks to a completely healthy squad available to select from, AmaZulu boss Jozef Vukušič has no fitness worries whatsoever coming into this clash.
Our assessment is that AmaZulu and Cape Town City could both well score here although it’s hard to see a clear-cut winner.
Will be interesting to see how this one goes, with a good chance of a draw. We therefore see a tight encounter, finishing with a 1-1 score when the referee blows the full-time whistle.
