Al Ahly vs Mamelodi Sundowns Predictions


Al Ahly are having a tough run of form with consecutive draws at home and just three wins in their last seven. Sundowns are in excellent shape and will fancy their chances of an away goal considering the hosts have been leaking goals at home under their former coach Pitso Mosimane. I am tipping a score draw.

  • Al Ahly have drawn their last 2 home matches (all competitions).
  • Al Ahly have kept 1 clean sheet in their last 7 home matches (all competitions).
  • Mamelodi Sundowns have won 9 of their last 13 matches (3 draws)(Premier Soccer League).
  • Mamelodi Sundowns have kept 6 clean sheets in their last 7 matches (all competitions).

Head to Head


Al Ahly hold a 3-1 advantage over Mamelodi Sundowns across their previous six meetings with two draws.

Their last meeting saw Sundowns host Al Ahly in March 2020 as the match finished 1-1.

Al Ahly Form


Pitso Mosimane’s side have just three wins in their last seven Egyptian Premier League matches as they sit four points behind Zamalek with two matches in hand. They reached this stage having finished second in their CAF Champions League group behind Simba after losing 1-0 in Tanzania.

After a disappointing 1-1 home draw with El Gouna after conceding late, Al Ahly lost 1-0 at Ghazl El Mehalla. A 2-1 win came next at Al Ittihad as Badr Banoun and Mohamed Magdi Kafsha scored.

In their last match, the Egyptian giants drew 1-1 at home with title rivals Zamalek as they conceded a late equaliser.

Al Ahly Team News


Al Ahly coach Pitso Mosimane has three long-term injuries to contend with as Ali Maaloul misses out as left back and Junior Ajayi is injured on the wing. Central midfielder Mohamed Mahmoud is also unavailable.

Striker Mohamed Sherif will be a key players with 12 goals this season even though he is overperforming on Expected Goals.

Mamelodi Sundowns Form


Sundowns sit top of the Premier Soccer League table and are one win from retaining their league title. They reached this stage having topped their group with two matches to spare before a draw and a defeat in two dead rubbers.

After a run of four matches without victory, Sundowns have won their last three matches in a row. A shock 2-1 defeat to Kaizer Chiefs was followed by a 0-0 draw against Golden Arrows and then a 3-0 win at Orlando Pirates.

Their last two matches saw a 2-0 win against Maritzburg United before winning 1-0 at TS Galaxy through Peter Shalulile’s goal.

Mamelodi Sundowns Team News


Sundowns have a doubt over attacking midfield Themba Zwane, but he is expected to be fit after missing the last couple of matches. Sphelele Mkhulise should also return to play in midfield after a knock.

In attack, Kermit Erasmus and Gaston Sirino are fit after knocks and will be vying to start alongside Peter Shalulile in attack. Denis Onyango returns to start in goal after missing a flight and being unavailable for the last match.
