Full predictions, stats & game poll for the Black Leopards v Maritzburg United match are shown here - as well as the best betting odds.
Black Leopards will be looking to improve on their last outing here after the 2-0 Premier Division loss in their previous game against AmaZulu.
An interesting characteristic of more recent Black Leopards games is seeing a zero in the scoreline.
From their prior six matches leading up to this one, in as many as 5 of them a wager on BTTS would've been a loser.
Following on from tasting defeat last time out to Chippa United in Premier Division competition, Maritzburg United will be aiming to make amends here.
The strike force from Maritzburg United have made hard work of scoring goals over their previous 6 games, contributing the disappointing return of just 4. In those matches, Maritzburg have also seen the collective goal aggregate against them equal 11. That kind of trend won’t necessarily be continued into this game, though.
