Moroka Swallows will welcome Cape Town City to Volkswagen Dobsonville Stadium for a matchday 0 fixture in South Africa Premier Soccer League. The last meeting on 29th August 2021 ended in a 0-0 draw. Both sides have met seven times in the most recent seasons. Moroka Swallows has won 2 matches, and Cape Town City triumphed in 3. Recent outings average 3.86 goals, while both teams score 86% of the time.
Moroka Swallows’s last game in the South Africa Premier Soccer League against SuperSport United at home ended in a 0-3 loss. Moroka Swallows had plenty of possession, but not enough quality in the final third of the pitch.
Cape Town City’s recent game against Stellenbosch ended in a home 0-3 loss. The Citizens’s strikers were frustrated by the lack of good chances.
Since the start of the season, Moroka Swallows is more dominant at home. They have one wins out of 2 games on home soil. Moroka Swallows’s good defensive display is key to their success. They didn’t concede in 50% of home games.
Cape Town City has picked up 4 points from the previous three league games. It is quite intriguing that they prefer playing on the road. Cape Town City has collected 3.00 points on average per away game, compared to 0.50 at home. To improve results, they have to be more compact in defence. Cape Town City 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 Cape Town City.
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 2.5 goals per game. Over 2.5 goals were scored in an average of 75% of Moroka Swallows’s home and Cape Town City’s away games. My prediction is Under 2.5 Goals.
