Absa Premiership action continues on Friday when Maritzburg United host a Baroka FC side who were knocked off top spot in midweek.
Maritzburg are in mid table with 14 points from 11 games and in midweek they beat Cape Town City 4-2, ending a run of 8 league games without a win.
At home this season the Team of Choice have won 1 of 5 games, drawing 2 and losing 2
The win came at home to Ajax (2-0) early in the season whilst the draws came against Pirates and Wits (both 0-0) and the defeats at the hands of Chiefs (2-0) and Free State Stars (1-0)
Overall 1 of 11 league games have gone over 2.5 goals
All 5 home games have seen backers of under 2.5 goals and both teams to score? (no) collect
Baroka were thumped 4-0 at Sundowns in midweek, they slipped from first to third on goal difference as 1 of 4 teams on 19 points but they have played 3 games more than new leaders Sundowns
That was Baroka’s first defeat of the season away from home, they won 3 and drawn 3 of their earlier road trips with the victories coming at Chippa, Bloem Celtic and Chiefs
Baroka have found the net in 5 of their 7 road trips
Overall 5 of 13 league games have gone over 2.5 goals including 3 of 7 road trips
Both sides have found the net in 8 of 13 league games including 4 of 7 away from home

Maritzburg are hard to catch right but the midweek win coupled with a heavy defeat for Baroka last time out is enough to sway me to the home side.
Bet: Home win at 5/4
