Full predictions, pre-match stats and user poll for Golden Arrows v AmaZulu are shown on this page - plus the latest match odds.
Golden Arrows head into this game following on from a 0-0 Premier Division stalemate versus Mamelodi Sundowns.
Their more recent scorelines really do illustrate the point that much solidity has been shown by the Golden Arrows defence. Abafana Bes'thende have been mean at the back, seeing the number of goals that have flown into the back of their net during their previous six clashes standing at 3.
Pre-game facts show that Golden Arrows:
- have not been beaten in the league by AmaZulu in their previous 4 matches.
- are undefeated in their previous 3 league matches at home.
- are without a win at home for the past 4 league games. Fans are getting restless.
AmaZulu will go into this clash following a 1-5 Premier Division win with the defeat of Cape Town City in their previous game.
A sequence of steadfast displays from the AmaZulu defenders has seen their ‘goals against’ tally amounting to 2 from their past 6 outings combined. In that time, their forwards have scored 11. We shall soon find out if that trend can be sustained here.
Leading up to this clash, AmaZulu:
- haven't won against Golden Arrows in games played away from home for the previous 3 league games.
- have not been beaten by Golden Arrows in games played away from home for the previous 2 league games.
- are unbeaten in their last 10 away league matches. They've been so good on the road.
