Cape Town City will welcome Orlando Pirates to Cape Town Stadium for a matchday 0 fixture in South Africa Premier Soccer League. The last meeting on 9th February 2021 ended in a Orlando Pirates 2-0 win. Both sides have met seventeen times in the most recent seasons. Cape Town City has won 4 matches, and Orlando Pirates triumphed in 5. Recent outings average 2.53 goals, while both teams score 59% of the time.
Cape Town City's latest fixture against Moroka Swallows ended in an away 0-0 draw. They were not spectacular, so this result seems fair.
Orlando Pirates's recent game against Mamelodi Sundowns ended in a home 0-2 loss. The Buccaneers's strikers were frustrated by the lack of good chances.
So far, Cape Town City plays better on the road than at home. They win 2.00 points per away game on average compared to 0.67 points at home. Although Cape Town City 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 33% home clean sheets.
Orlando Pirates has picked up 9 points from the previous six league games. It is quite intriguing that they prefer playing on the road. Ezikamagebhula has collected 1.67 points on average per away game, compared to 1.33 at home. To improve results, they have to be more compact in defence. Orlando Pirates kept a clean sheet in just 33% 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 Cape Town City or Draw.
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 1.75 goals per game. Over 2.5 goals were scored in an average of 50% of Cape Town City's home and Orlando Pirates's away games. My prediction is Under 2.5 Goals.
