Last season, the home team was competitive until the very end in the fight for a place in the CAF Confederation Cup. But, Stellenbosch still ended the season without achieving the desired goal.
They finished the season in fourth place in the table with only 2 points behind second-place Cape Town City, so they can consider their participation in last year’s championship a failure.
With only 23 goals conceded, they were the second-best defensive team in the league, but it is evident that their defensive style of play did not bring them the desired results. This season, they will have to be much more successful offensively to hope for a high ranking in the standings.
Even the visitors cannot be satisfied with the way they finished the competition in the championship last season. With 44 points, they were the sixth-placed team in the league. The placement in the CAF Confederation Cup eluded them due to only 4 points.
Last season, they were one of the teams with the highest number of draws in the league (14). Also, we have to mention that they even finished 4 of their last away matches without a win, which is a disappointingly bad performance considering their ambitions.
On the other hand, last season with 34 goals scored, they were the fourth best team in terms of offensive performance, so we can certainly expect interesting and efficient matches from them this year.
In the last 2 duels between these teams, 7 goals were scored.
Injuries and suspensions
There are no significant absences.
The home team played 0:0 against Marumo in the first round, while the guests beat Swallows at 1:0.
Although the numbers show that they were not attractive matches, we must say that both matches were played at a very fast pace and with a large number of scoring opportunities.
Both teams are good enough to score at least one goal in this match, and this time we will go against the bookies, who have given odds of even 2.90 for the “Over 2.5 goals” game.
Prediction: Over 1.5
