Free State Stars 13/10
Maritzburg Utd 2/1
Draw 21/10

Here are two teams that are capable of anything. That is, unless they’re playing each other. For mid-table sides, their inconsistency always makes a matchup like this a difficult one to call.

Free State Stars were at the wrong end of a small hiding from Supersport United on the opening weekend. After taking an early lead, a dominant second half comeback from Matsatsantsa put any early season joys to bed for Stars.

Maritzburg, on the other hand, grabbed a regulation win against PSL first timers Polokwane City. Yakubu Mohammed looked good in his first appearance for the club, and is one to watch as the season progresses, but I can’t see them making it two wins from two away in Bethlehem.

Betting Prediction:
The Team Of Choice have never beaten FSS in their ten previous meetings, with the total goals tally in favour of the hosts 17-6. Free State Stars are my firm pick for the clash, currently at a healthy 13/10. The draw is at 21/10 for those less confident.
