Team News: Baroka
With a fully healthy squad ready to go, Baroka manager Wedson Nyirenda has zero fitness concerns to speak of before this clash. Ananias Gebhardt cannot play in this game through suspension.
In our view, Baroka will likely be able to score against this SuperSport United lineup, however it might not be as many as the goals that they could concede.
We reckon that it will be a very close game with a 2-1 advantage for SuperSport United at full-time. Could easily see this go either way.
