Golden Arrows will welcome AmaZulu to Sugar Ray Xulu Stadium for a matchday 0 fixture in South Africa Premier Soccer League. The last meeting on 1st May 2021 ended in an AmaZulu 1-0 win. Both sides have met eleven times in the most recent seasons. Golden Arrows has won 3 matches, and AmaZulu triumphed in 5. Recent outings average 2.36 goals, while both teams score 55% of the time.
Golden Arrows’s latest fixture against TS Galaxy ended in an away 2-2 draw. They were not spectacular, so this result seems fair. Golden Arrows scored in both halves in the 37th and 76th minute.
AmaZulu’s recent game against SuperSport United ended in a home 0-0 draw. One point was the maximum they could have won with that display.
Since the start of the season, Golden Arrows is more dominant at home. They have one wins out of 1 games on home soil. Although Golden Arrows 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.
AmaZulu has picked up 2 points from the previous three league games. They still have a lot to prove when playing away from home. AmaZulu wins 0.00 points per away game, a bit less than their home record shows. It is clear that their strikers will have to step up in the following games. AmaZulu failed to score in 100% of away games this campaign.
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 AmaZulu.
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 2 goals per game. Over 2.5 goals were scored in an average of 50% of Golden Arrows’s home and AmaZulu’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 Golden Arrows’s home and AmaZulu’s away games. My prediction is Both Teams to Score: No.
