Golden Arrows will welcome Marumo Gallants to Sugar Ray Xulu Stadium for a matchday 0 fixture in South Africa Premier Soccer League. The last meeting on 10th March 2021 ended in a Golden Arrows 2-1 win. Both sides have met two times in the most recent seasons. Golden Arrows has won 2 matches, and Marumo Gallants failed to win on every occasion. Recent outings average 2.00 goals, while both teams score 50% of the time.
Golden Arrows’s latest fixture against Sekhukhune United ended in an away 1-1 draw. They were not spectacular, so this result seems fair. Golden Arrows was more dominant in the second half and scored in the 52nd minute.
Marumo Gallants’s recent game against Kaizer Chiefs ended in a home 0-0 draw. They had more ball possession and goal-scoring opportunities but it wasn’t enough to win three points.
Since the start of the season, Golden Arrows is more dominant at home. They have one wins out of 2 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.
Marumo Gallants has picked up 2 points from the previous four league games. They still have a lot to prove when playing away from home. Marumo Gallants 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. Marumo Gallants failed to score in 100% of away games this campaign.
It is not a surprise that the hosts stand out as a favourite to win this one. Diski ‘Stendes is yet to lose at home, being undefeated in two games.
This season hasn’t unfolded as planned, and Marumo Gallants haven’t tasted an away victory at all. The visitors have lost 100% of all games on the road while conceding on average 1.50 goals in the process. Furthermore, they are in really bad away form, having lost two consecutive games on the road.
I am confident that the hosts will prove their worth and triumph with another home victory.My prediction is Golden Arrows to win.
