Black Leopards vs AmaZulu Predictions

Leopards are struggling to score goals and face an in-form AmaZulu team who are eight matches unbeaten. With a relegation battle on their hands, I am tipping Leopards to be beaten at home by Benni McCarthy’s AmaZulu.

  • Black Leopards have lost 5 of their last 7 matches (all competitions).
  • Black Leopards have lost their last 4 home matches (all competitions).
  • Black Leopards have failed to score in 3 of their last 4 home matches (all competitions).
  • AmaZulu have won 4 of their last 6 matches (all competitions).
  • AmaZulu have seen under 2.5 goals in 7 of their last 10 matches (all competitions).

Head to Head

AmaZulu hold a 10-6 advantage versus Black Leopards with three draws over their previous 27 matches.

Their last meeting was in November as AmaZulu won 2-0 at home after Luvuyo Memela’s brace.

Black Leopards Form

Leopards reached the last 16 of the Nedbank Cup after a 2-1 win away at Jomo Cosmos in the last round. In the PSL, they sit 15th in the table with just two wins in their last 11 league matches.

Black Leopards lost four home matches in a row as Cape Town City (2-0), Chippa United (3-0), Mamelodi Sundowns (2-1) and TS Galaxy (3-0) all won on Leopards’ turf. They then beat Jomo Cosmos in the Nedbank Cup on their travels before losing 2-1 at Baroka.

In their last match, Black Leopards won 2-1 at Golden Arrows as Mohamed Anas scored a brace.

Black Leopards Injuries & Team News

Leopards handed a rare start to Mohamed Anas in their last match and he rewarded new coach Kosta Papic with a brace. He should keep his place.

Young fullback Tsepo Matsimibi made his debut and Tsheamo Mashoene got a rare start at left back against Arrows and both are expected to retain their spots.

AmaZulu Form

AmaZulu reached this stage of the Nedbank Cup after beating Golden Arrows on penalties after a 1-1 draw away from home. Benni McCarthy’s team are eight matches unbeaten in all competitions and have 13 points from their last five league matches.

A 2-0 win at Baroka was followed by a 2-1 victory at home against Stellenbosch and a 4-3 home win against Bloemfontein Celtic. AmaZulu then beat Golden Arrows in the Nedbank Cup and drew 0-0 at Swallows.

In their last match, AmaZulu beat Kaizer Chiefs 2-1 away with a late winner after Kaizer Chiefs were reduced to ten men. Augustine Mulenga and Lehlohonolo Majoro scored the goals.

AmaZulu Injuries & Team News

AmaZulu have doubts over two midfielders in Siyethemba Sithebe and Butholezwe Ncube but have plenty of depth in that area.

Lehlohonolo Majoro scored from the bench in the last match and is hoping to start up front whilst rookie Samkelo Mgwazela could start for the second time in defence. Siyabonga Mbatha will play in goal due to this being a cup match.
