Black Leopards vs AmaZulu Predictions


Leopards look set to be relegated this season with their run of five consecutive home defeats an indicator of their struggles this season. They are struggling to score goals and face an AmaZulu side built on a solid rearguard.

The visitors have won seven of their last eight in the league and I am tipping them to continue their sublime form with a victory.

  • Black Leopards have lost 8 of their last 10 matches (Premier Soccer League).
  • Black Leopards have lost their last 5 home matches (Premier Soccer League).
  • Black Leopards have failed to score in 4 of their last 6 matches (Premier Soccer League).
  • AmaZulu have won 7 of their last 8 matches (Premier Soccer League).
  • AmaZulu have kept 4 clean sheets in their last 5 matches (Premier Soccer League).

Head to Head


AmaZulu hold a 10-7 advantage over Black Leopards over their previous 20 meetings with 10 draws.

The teams last met in February as Black Leopards beat a second string AmaZulu 1-0 at home in the Nedbank Cup.

Black Leopards Form


Leopards sit at the foot of the Premier Soccer League table and have lost 13 of their 20 matches. They have lost eight of their last ten league games and looked likely to be relegated.

After five league losses on the trot, Leopards won 2-1 away at Golden Arrows before a 1-0 loss at Maritzburg United. A 3-1 defeat at home to Arrows and a 3-1 defeat away at TS Galaxy followed.

Black Leopards were then knocked out of the Nedbank Cup after losing 2-0 at home defeat to TTM before a fine 1-1 draw away at Mamelodi Sundowns in their last match.

Black Leopards Injuries & Team News


After his crucial equaliser from the bench against Mamelodi Sundowns in their last match, Rodrick Kabwe will hope to have earned himself a start in midfield.

Kenneth Nthatheni was taken off injured in the last match so Khomotso Masia could start in his place at centre back.

AmaZulu Form


AmaZulu are 10 matches unbeaten in the league with seven wins in their last eight. Under coach Benni McCarthy, they sit fifth in the PSL table.

The side beat Stellenbosch 2-1 and then Bloemfontein Celtic 4-3 at home before a 0-0 draw away to Swallows. A 2-1 win at Kaizer Chiefs and 1-0 at home against SuperSport United followed before beating Chippa United 1-0 away.

Their last match saw a 2-0 home victory against TTM.

AmaZulu Injuries & Team News


AmaZulu have two suspensions for this match with right Thembela Sikhakhane and central midfielder Xola Mlambo both missing out.

Sphesihle Maduna will hope to replace Mlambo in midfield having scored as a substitute against TTM.
