sundowns1819Black Leopards host Mamelodi Sundowns in our featured DSTV Premiership match on Wednesday, an opportunity for the visitors to open up some daylight over their rivals in the title race.

 

 

 

Black Leopards

 

On the 17th January Leopards sprang a surprise with a 2-0 home win over Orlando Pirates, their best result of a tough season so far. However 2 subsequent home games saw them beaten by Cape Town City (2-0) and then Chippa United (3-0) and those defeats led to the news that coach Dylan Kerr has left his role. Kerr's assistants will prepare the team for this match whilst Leopards seek to appoint a third coach of the season.

 

Leopards come into the midweek program as 1 of 3 teams at the bottom of the standings and they have just 9 points from their 12 matches. Both their wins so far came in home fixtures alongside 1 draw and 4 defeats.

 

Mamelodi Sundowns

 

Sundowns remain top of the log on goal difference from Supersport and Swallows. Although they remain undefeated in the DTV Premiership they have drawn their last 3 matches, 0-0 against Supersport and Bloem Celtic and last weekend they conceded at the death in a 1-1 draw with Swallows.

 

Downs have a record of 7 wins and 6 draws and with neither Swallows or Supersport in midweek action they can go 3 points clear at the top of the log if they win here.

 

 

The Betting

 

In the early betting Leopards can be backed at around 13/2 to win the game, the draw is trading at around 29/10 and Sundowns are favourites at 9/20

 

A game of 3 goals or more in total is priced at 5/4 and its 14/10 for both sides to find the net.

Verdict:

 

The lack of goals for Sundowns recently is a concern but this is a golden opportunity to bounce back to winning ways and I expect them to find their shooting boots.

 

For a betting interest I will go with Downs to score at least twice.

 

Bet: Away team total goals, over 1.5 at 8/10
