SuperSport United will welcome Maritzburg United to Lucas Masterpieces Moripe Stadium for a matchday 0 fixture in South Africa Premier Soccer League. The last meeting on 2nd June 2021 ended in a SuperSport United 2-0 win. Both sides have met sixteen times in the most recent seasons. SuperSport United has won 10 matches, and Maritzburg United triumphed in 3. Recent outings average 2.56 goals, while both teams score 50% of the time.
SuperSport United’s latest fixture against Moroka Swallows ended in an away 3-0 win. The Swanky Boys was very effective while counter-attacking. In the end, it was enough to make the difference between the two teams. SuperSport United was much better than Moroka Swallows in the second half and scored in the 62nd, 63rd and 71st minute.
Maritzburg United’s recent game against Marumo Gallants ended in a home 1-0 win. The Team of Choice dominated the game and deserved the win. Maritzburg United deserved to score in the second half and did so in the 90+1th minute.
Since the start of the season, The Trendsetters is more dominant at home. They have one wins out of 1 games on home soil. Although SuperSport United is among the most solid home teams in the league, they are far from perfect. Their defence is not as good as expected with just 0% home clean sheets.
Maritzburg United has picked up 6 points from the previous four league games. Maritzburg United don’t feel the pressure of playing away. So far, they earn an average of 1.50 points per game, both home and away.
It is not a surprise that the hosts stand out as a favourite to win this one.
The Team of Choice got the three points in their previous away games but are still off their best. Their away record does not convince me that they have what it takes to avoid defeat on Saturday.
I am confident that the hosts will prove their worth and triumph with another home victory.My prediction is SuperSport United to win.
Still, I expect a close game and don’t think that we will see a lot of goals. Both sides score and concede on average 3 goals per game. Over 2.5 goals were scored in an average of 75% of SuperSport United’s home and Maritzburg United’s away games. My prediction is Under 2.5 Goals.
