DStv Premiership: Gameweek 15 Preview

Cape Town City have the opportunity to leapfrog Orlando Pirates in the standings if the Citizens claim victory over SuperSport United

With continental football taking South Africa’s big guns out of DStv Premiership action, there’s still plenty to feast our eyes upon as Swallows and SuperSport United have the chance to mark another statement in their pursuit for the title. Elsewhere, a massive six-pointer is on the horizon when Maritzburg United welcome Tshakhuma TM to the Harry Gwala Stadium. First up though, Golden Arrows face Stellenbosch in the Winelands.

Friday 12 February

Stellenbosch 5/2
Draw 2/1
Golden Arrows 12/10
(17:00)

Stellenbosch could move up into the top eight with a win over Golden Arrows here. Steve Barkers side, however, are winless in six matches across all competitions. They did give Sundowns a scare in the Nedbank Cup, eventually losing 3-2 after extra-time. Arrows were also dumped out of the Nedbank Cup by their crosstown rivals, AmaZulu, losing 5-4 on penalties. To date, Golden Arrows have still lost just the one time in the DStv Premiership. My money is on a draw.

Maritzburg United 13/10
Draw 2/1
Tshakhuma TM 22/10
(17:00)

Maritzburg United have been going through a difficult patch under Ernst Middendorp – the club’s first slump since he’s back at the Team of Choice. In the league, Maritzburg United are winless in four games, losing their last three in a row. Tshakhuma have lost five league matches on the bounce, but somehow, managed to pull off one of the upsets of the season, knocking SuperSport United out of the Nedbank Cup. Despite that result for Tshakhuma, I still fancy Maritzburg United to get the job done and claim maximum points.

Saturday 13 February

Bloemfontein Celtic 27/20
Draw 22/10
Chippa United 21/10
(15:00)

Both Bloemfontein Celtic and Chippa United have been inconsistent this season with both clubs outside of the top eight so far. Celtic have had their ups and downs this term, but what will be encouraging for the hosts is that all of their victories came on home soil this season. Chippa have played 10 of their 13 games away from home and as a result of that, the Chilli Boys have found it hard to challenge in the top half. Siwelele have offered the neutrals some fantastic entertainment, but conceding four goals in their last two games across all competitions doesn’t sit well with me. Take Chippa United to win or draw at 5/10.

SuperSport United 19/20
Draw 5/2
Cape Town City 5/2
(17:00)

Fireworks are always on show when SuperSport United meet Cape Town City. For the past couple of years, both United and City have been South Africa’s cup kings and have competed for top honours domestically. SuperSport United are unbeaten in all eight of their home games, while Cape Town City have been the highest scorers in the DStv Premiership this season. I’m expecting this encounter to be one of the games of the season, but in terms of picking a result, I foresee SuperSport United and Cape Town City sharing the spoils.

Sunday 14 February

Swallows 12/10
Draw 5/2
AmaZulu 2/1
(15:30)

Benni McCarthy has finally got AmaZulu playing to his tune which has seen Usuthu win their last three league games in succession, while they also dumped Golden Arrows out of the Nedbank Cup via a penalty shootout. Swallows still have their cloak of invincibility on as the Dube Birds remain unbeaten after 14 games in the DStv Premiership. Swallows have been ultra-impressive with Brandon Truter on course to be one of the coaches of the season. I’m backing the Dube Birds to end AmaZulu’s winning streak this Sunday.

TREBLE @ 13/2
Maritzburg United Win 13/10
Chippa United Win/Draw 5/10
Swallows Win 12/10
