Baroka vs Black Leopards Predictions


Both of these sides are really struggling in terms of performance levels and results. I am tipping this Polokwane derby to end with a point apiece.

  • Baroka have drawn 2 of their last 3 matches (Premier Soccer League).
  • Baroka have seen under 2.5 goals in their last 4 matches (Premier Soccer League).
  • Black Leopards have drawn their last 2 away matches (Premier Soccer League).
  • Black Leopards have seen under 2.5 goals in 4 of their last 5 away matches (Premier Soccer League).

Head to Head


Baroka hold a 6-5 lead over Black Leopards across their previous 16 matches with five draws.

Their last meeting was in October 2020 as Baroka won 3-1 away at Leopards.

Baroka Form


Baroka are in very poor form with just one win in their last 10 in the league. Coach Thoka Matsemela must be close to being sacked.

A 2-0 home loss to AmaZulu was followed by a 1-1 draw at Kaizer Chiefs and a 1-1 home draw with Cape Town City. Baroka then lost on penalties to Cape Town Spurs in the Nedbank Cup after a 1-1 draw at home after extra time.

In their last match, they were beaten 2-0 by Mamelodi Sundowns away from home.

Baroka Injuries & Team News


Baroka were without two central defensive options for the last match as Vusi Sibiya and Denwin Farmer were absent with injuries. Neither is expected to be back for this match.

Joslin Kamatuka is staking his claim to start on the left wing after some lively outings since being signed in January. Striker Richard Mbulu was missing against Sundowns but should be fit to return against Black Leopards.

Black Leopards Form


Leopards are in poor form in the league and they sit bottom of the PSL table with just one win in their last ten Premier Soccer League matches.

A five match winless run was surprisingly ended as they beat Orlando Pirates 2-0 at home in January. Four consecutive home defeats followed as they lost 2-0 to Cape Town City, 3-0 to Chippa United, 2-1 vs Mamelodi Sundowns and 3-0 to TS Galaxy.

In their last match, Leopards won 2-1 away at Jomo Cosmos in the Nedbank Cup. Ovidy Karuru scored a brace.

Black Leopards Injuries & Team News


Leopards rested goalkeeper King Ndlovu and two defenders in Sibusiso Khumalo and Khomotso Masia in their last match. All three should start this one.

Sibongiseni Mthethwa is suspended in central midfield so Thabiso Mokoena could cover.
