Mamelodi Sundowns - Stellenbosch predictions and free betting tips [27/09/2023]
On the horizon this Wednesday, we have a highly anticipated fixture in the South African Premier League between the home side Mamelodi Sundowns and Stellenbosch. I lean towards a decisive victory for the hosts by at least 2 goals.
Mamelodi's current form
Mamelodi Sundowns convincingly trounced Orlando Pirates in a narrow 1:0 affair. The solitary goal came courtesy of Kosta's (penalty kick) precision at the 12-minute mark. A victory that catapulted Mamelodi to the top of the PSL championship table, boasting 7 wins from 7 fixtures, and a solid total of 21 points. It's worth noting that Orlando Pirates currently languish in the 11th position on the PSL league table, mustering a mere 7 points from their 5 games.
Stellenbosch's current form
In their previous clash, Stellenbosch grappled with Swallows as part of the PSL 2023/2024 season and suffered a 0:2 setback. Occupying the 13th position out of 16 in the league table post 7 matches, Stellenbosch have only managed 2 victories, suffered 4 losses and a single draw. Their goal difference stands at 5:8. Currently, they've accumulated just 7 points. Swallows, on the other hand, are seated pretty in the 4th spot on the league table after playing 6 matches, bagging 3 victories, 2 losses, and a tally of 10 points.
Examining the head-to-head record of the teams, it's evident that Mamelodi Sundowns have the upper hand, clinching 5 out of 8 matches, while Stellenbosch has only 1 victory and 2 drawn encounters to their credit. Mamelodi has netted 14 goals to their advantage and conceded 7. Given the home side's sterling performance with 7 victories from as many encounters, I'm betting on the continuation of this glorious winning streak.
