AmaZulu will welcome Baroka to Jonsson Kings Park Stadium for a matchday 0 fixture in South Africa Premier Soccer League. The last meeting on 11th May 2021 ended in a Baroka 1-0 win. Both sides have met eight times in the most recent seasons. AmaZulu has won 3 matches, and Baroka triumphed in 3. Recent outings average 1.25 goals, while both teams score 13% of the time.
AmaZulu’s latest fixture against Golden Arrows ended in an away 2-2 draw. Their strikers had a good game, but not enough to triumph at the end. AmaZulu scored in both halves in the 24th and 79th minute.
Baroka’s recent game against Sekhukhune United ended in a home 1-0 win. Although Bakgaga didn’t match their opponent’s intensity and quality while on possession, it was still enough. Baroka put in a decent first-half display and scored in the 42nd minute.
Since the start of the season, AmaZulu is more dominant at home. They have zero wins out of 2 games on home soil. Usuthu has one of the best defence in the league. They have kept a clean sheet in 100% of their home games.
Baroka has picked up 6 points from the previous four league games. They still have a lot to prove when playing away from home. Baroka wins 0.00 points per away game, a bit less than their home record shows. To improve results, they have to be more compact in defence. Baroka kept a clean sheet in just 0% of their visits.
It is hard to choose a favourite in this one. Both teams look evenly-matched and have their strengths. I am not willing to take a risk and prefer a double chance bet. My prediction is Draw or Baroka.
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 1.5 goals per game. Over 2.5 goals were scored in an average of 50% of AmaZulu’s home and Baroka’s away games. My prediction is Under 2.5 Goals.
Lately, there are not that many high-scoring games for both sides. I am confident that the tendency will keep going and at least one team will keep a clean sheet. A bet that both sides will score wins in an average of 50% of AmaZulu’s home and Baroka’s away games. My prediction is Both Teams to Score: No.
