Mamelodi Sundowns vs TP Mazembe Predictions


Both teams have already qualified but top spot is up for grabs. Sundowns need to win and I’m backing them to get the job done. A win with a clean sheet looks the smart bet here. 

  • Mamelodi Sundowns have kept 9 clean sheets in their last 11 matches.
  • Mamelodi Sundowns have won 5 of their last 8 matches (3 draws). 
  • TP Mazembe have lost to nil in 3 last away matches vs Mamelodi Sundowns.
  • TP Mazembe have just 1 win in their last 8 away matches (CAF Champions League).

Head to Head


Sundowns hold a 5-3 advantage over TP Mazembe across eight previous meetings. 

The Congolese side won 1-0 when the sides last met in December. 

Mamelodi Sundowns Form & Team News


Sundowns are 11 matches unbeaten since losing to TP Mazembe in December. They’ve kept nine clean sheets in that run. 

After a 0-0 home draw vs Polokwane City to end 2023, Sundowns drew 1-1 at home to ten-man Orlando Pirates. A resounding 6-1 win vs lower league La Masia in the Nedbank Cup was followed by a 2-0 win at Nouadhibou.

In midweek, they scored three goals in the second half in a 3-0 home victory over AmaZulu. 

Defenders Mothobi Mvala and Khuliso Mudau are out injured. Mosa Lebusa is available at the back after a suspension.

Peter Shalulile is set to start up front. Lucas Ribeiro scored a hattrick vs AmaZulu and will keep his place.

Mamelodi Sundowns Predicted Lineup


Williams; Kekana, Lebusa, Lungu, Modiba; Mokoena, Zungu, Allende; Zwane; Ribeiro, Shalulile.

TP Mazembe Form & Team News


The Congolese giants have lost just two of their past 25 matches. 

After a 2-0 home win vs Nouadhibou, they drew 0-0 away at Panda B52. Four Ligue 1 victories followed with 25 goals netted. 

Last weekend, they beat TP Mazembe 3-0 at home in the CAF Champions League. 

Coach Lamine N’Diaye is set to name an unchanged XI. They have no suspensions or injuries to deal with. 

Midfielder Patient Mwamba may have to settle for a place on the bench despite scoring last time out. 

TP Mazembe Predicted Lineup


Faty; Keita, Ntambwe, Mundeko, Luzolo; Likonza, Oladapo, Ngimbi; Beya, Traore, Fofana.

Verdict

I'm backing Sundowns to win at home with a clean sheet.
