Cape Town City vs Baroka Predictions


Cape Town City are usually very strong and free scoring at home. Baroka are in dire form and are very leaky in defence. I am tipping Cape Town City to end their winless run with three points at home.

  • Cape Town City have won 10 of their last 16 home matches (all competitions).
  • Cape Town City have scored 2 or more goals in 5 of their last 8 home matches (all competitions).
  • Baroka have lost 7 of their last 14 matches (2 wins, 5 draws) (Premier Soccer League).
  • Baroka have kept 1 clean sheet in their last 22 matches (Premier Soccer League).
  • Baroka have failed to score in 3 of their last 6 away matches (Premier Soccer League).

Head to Head


Baroka hold a 4-3 advantage against Cape Town City across the 11 previous matches played between these two teams with four draws.

Their last meetings was in January as the Baroka drew 1-1 with Cape Town City at home.

Cape Town City Form


After a very strong start to the season, Cape Town City have hit a slump that has seen them go seven matches without victory in the league and drop to seventh in the table.

After away defeats to Orlando Pirates and SuperSport United, City drew 1-1 at home with Swallows and then drew 0-0 away at Chippa United. A 2-1 defeat at home to Stellenbosch came next.

In their last match, City drew 1-1 away at Golden Arrows having taken an early lead through Abdul Ajugan.

Cape Town City Injuries & Team News


City welcome back top scorer Mduduzi Mdantsane in midfield from suspension for this match. Forward Justin Shonga missed the Arrows game with injury but should return to contention.

Edmilson Dove remains absent in defence whilst Abbubaker Mobara will hope to be recalled at centre back after an injury knock.

Baroka Form


Baroka are in very poor form. Their strong start to the season is long forgotten after a run of just two wins in 14 league matches. They sit 11th in the Premier Soccer League table, six points above the relegation zone.

Having earned draws against Kaizer Chiefs and Cape Town City, Baroka lost 2-0 away to Mamelodi Sundowns and then won 2-1 at home against Black Leopards. A goalless draw away to Golden Arrows followed and then a 3-1 home defeat to Stellenbosch.

Their last result was a 1-1 home draw with Bloemfontein Celtic thanks to a late equaliser from Richard Mbulu despite being down to ten men and playing the final 20 minutes with an outfield player in goal.

Baroka Injuries & Team News


Goalkeeper Elvis Chipezeze is suspended to their match so Oscarine Masuluke will start. Richard Mbulu’s goal from the bench against Celtic should see him handed a start up front with Nhlanhla Mgaga hoping to play in support.

Both Denwin Farmer and Vusi Sibiya returned from injuries in defence for the last match and should line up in the back four.
