To Win (90mins)
AmaZulu 15/10
Maritzburg United 16/10
Draw 22/10

The Usuthu will be licking their wounds on the back of their embarrassing 7-1 drubbing midweek.

They’re still a good side and hopefully can strike a line through the result and move on.

Maritzburg United will be gutted after holding out for 89 minutes against Supersport United and conceding when it seemed a deserved draw was on the cards.

Midweek aside, this is a Natal derby, and there’s pride at stake. A short trip down the N3 for the Team Of Choice and their followers means both sides should be well supported.

They hold the upper hand in this fixture, despite only one win for either side in their last five meetings.

A draw seems the obvious way to go then, but both sides have had credible starts to the season, and neither of them will want to leave this one with just a point.

Betting Prediction: UNDER 2.5 GOALS
With that in mind, we’re probably going to see a tight game either way, so the under 2.5 goals seems the safest bet here.
