Cape Town City have won eight of their last 11 and are unbeaten in 11. They have also kept eight clean sheets in their last 12 fixtures so goals should be at a premium in this encounter. AmaZulu will sit back and be tough to break down, but the momentum is with City.

Cape Town City vs AmaZulu Predictions


City are strong at home but AmaZulu will be tough to break down. I am tipping this match to be low-scoring with City favoured to nick a narrow win.

  • Cape Town City have won 8 of their last 11 home matches (3 draws)(PSL).
  • Cape Town City have kept clean sheets in 8 of their last 12 matches (PSL).
  • AmaZulu have failed to score in 2 of their last 3 matches (PSL).
  • AmaZulu have scored under 1.5 goals in their last 5 matches (PSL).

Head to Head


Cape Town City hold a 9-8 advantage across 21 previous meetings with four draws.

The reverse fixture ended 2-0 at AmaZulu in November. AmaZulu have lost just once in their last seven matches against City.

Cape Town City Form


City are on a 12-match unbeaten run in the PSL with seven wins and eight clean sheets. They sit second in the PSL table with a three point lead over Royal AM having played one match more.

A four match winning streak was followed by a run with a single victory and three draws in four matches. A solid 0-0 draw at Mamelodi Sundowns preceded a 2-1 win at Kaizer Chiefs.

They then drew 0-0 at Chippa United having dominated the match. They bounced back with a 2-0 home win against TS Galaxy last time out.

Cape Town City Injuries & Team News


City welcome back midfielder Brice Ambina from suspension. Thato Mokeke could be recalled in midfield too.

Nathan Fasika was given a partial rest against TS Galaxy and should return at centre back.

AmaZulu Form


Since sacking Benni McCarthy, AmaZulu have seen some improved results under new coach Brandon Truter. He has overseen a six match unbeaten run.

A last-minute goal sealed a 1-0 win at Baroka before beat Maritzburg United 1-0 at home. They followed that with a 0-0 draw at high-flying Royal AM before winning 1-0 at Swallows.

Their last match saw a dull 0-0 home draw with Sekhukhune United. AmaZulu played without a front-line striker and carried little threat.

AmaZulu Injuries & Team News


Brandon Truter could hand a start to Siphelele Mthembu up front against his former club. He used a false nine last time out and will surely select a genuine striker for this one.

Top winger Augustine Mulenga is still out injured. Veteran striker Lehlohonolo Majoro remains doubtful as does another forward in Abraham Majok.
