Maritzburg United's latest fixture against Orlando Pirates ended in an away 2-0 loss. I expected more from Maritzburg United. The lack of focus in the final third cost them three points.

Baroka's previous game in the competition versus Chippa United ended in an away 1-0 win. Although Baroka countered for most of the game, it was more than enough to win. Baroka played better before halftime and scored in the 41st minute.

Since the start of the season, Maritzburg United is more dominant at home. They have four wins out of 14 games on home soil. Although Maritzburg 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 7% home clean sheets.

Baroka has picked up 9 points from the previous six league games. It is quite intriguing that they prefer playing on the road. Baroka has collected 1.36 points on average per away game, compared to 1.00 at home. To improve results, they have to be more compact in defence. Baroka kept a clean sheet in just 29% 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 Maritzburg United 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 2.27 goals per game. Over 2.5 goals were scored in an average of 36% of Maritzburg United's home and Baroka's away games. My prediction is Under 2.5 Goals.
