Sekhukhune United will welcome Golden Arrows to Makhulong Stadium for a matchday 0 fixture in South Africa Premier Soccer League.
Sekhukhune United’s latest fixture against Baroka ended in an away 1-0 loss. I expected more from Sekhukhune United. The lack of focus in the final third cost them three points.
Golden Arrows’s recent game against AmaZulu ended in a home 2-2 draw. The strikers had plenty of good goal-scoring opportunities. They should have done better to earn their team three points instead of one. Golden Arrows had good chances in both halves and scored in the 30th and 77th minute.
So far, Sekhukhune United plays better on the road than at home. They win 1.50 points per away game on average compared to 0.50 points at home. Although Sekhukhune 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.
Golden Arrows has picked up 5 points from the previous four league games. They still have a lot to prove when playing away from home. Golden Arrows wins 0.50 points per away game, a bit less than their home record shows. To improve results, they have to be more compact in defence. Golden Arrows 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 Golden Arrows.
