Bloemfontein Celtic vs Maritzburg United Predictions


Celtic have struggled all season and are far from their best right now. They are hard to beat at home in the league though. Maritzburg United have been playing well but not getting the results their performances deserve. I am tipping this match to end with a share of the spoils.

  • Bloemfontein Celtic have drawn 3 of their last 5 home matches (Premier Soccer League).
  • Bloemfontein Celtic have seen under 2.5 goals in 8 of their last 9 home matches (Premier Soccer League).
  • Maritzburg have drawn 1 of their last 2 away matches (Premier Soccer League).
  • Maritzburg have seen under 2.5 goals in 4 of their last 5 away matches (Premier Soccer League).

Maritzburg United hold a 14-6 leader against Bloemfontein Celtic over their previous 31 meetings with 11 draws.

Their last match was in January as Maritzburg United beat Bloemfontein Celtic 2-1 at home.

Bloemfontein Celtic Form


Celtic find themselves 11th in the PSL table and just six points above the relegation places having played a match more than the teams around them.

After 4-3 and 4-0 away defeats to AmaZulu and Cape Town City, Celtic beat SuperSport United 2-1 at home. A 1-1 home draw with Chippa United was next before a 1-0 defeat at TS Galaxy.

Bloemfontein Celtic Injuries & Team News


Celtic have Tshepo Rikhotso and Thato Lingwati back from suspension in defence. Captain and top striker Ndumiso Mabena is banned after being sent off against Pirates.

First choice goalkeeper Jackson Mabokgwane returned from long term injury in the last match but made a mistake. He should keep his place for this match though.

Maritzburg United moved off the bottom of the PSL table into 15th place after winning their last match. They have struggled this season with 10 defeats in 16 league matches.

After a 3-0 home defeat to TS Galaxy and then a 1-0 loss at home to Orlando Pirates, Maritzburg lost 2-1 away at Golden Arrows. They then lost 1-0 at home to TTM and 3-1 at home to Pirates in the Nedbank Cup.

In their last match, Maritzburg dominated Black Leopards and eventually scored in added time to win 1-0 at home.

Maritzburg United Injuries & Team News


Nazeer Allie is suspended in defence for this match and Kwanda Mngonyama is doubtful in the backline too. Ryan Rae could drop into a right back role with Daylon Claasen selected in midfield.

Judas Moseamedi may be set for a recall up front after making a big impact as a substitute against Black Leopards.
