Cape Town City vs Swallows Predictions


This is a tough game to call. Swallows have a very strong backline and are tough to beat but Cape Town City are very strong going forward at home. I am tipping them to inflict a first defeat of the season on Swallows.

  • Cape Town City have won 3 of their last 4 home matches (all competitions).
  • Cape Town City have scored 2 or more goals in 5 of their last 6 home matches (all competitions).
  • Cape Town City have seen BTTS yes in 11 of their last 13 matches (Premier Soccer League).
  • Swallows have drawn 5 of their last 6 matches (Premier Soccer League).
  • Swallows have scored 1 goal in each of their last 4 matches (Premier Soccer League).

Head to Head


This is the first ever meeting between these sides. Cape Town City were formed in 2016 and Swallows were only promoted to the Premier Soccer League this season.

Cape Town City Form


Cape Town City made a fine start to the season but have since had a major dip. Their last eight league matches have seen four defeats, two wins and two draws. They sit 7th in the Premier Soccer League table.

A 2-1 away defeat to Kaizer Chiefs was followed by a 2-0 win at Black Leopards and 4-2 home victory against Golden Arrows. City then drew 1-1 at Baroka and beat Bloemfontein Celtic 4-0 in the Nedbank Cup.

City have lost their last two matches as they were beaten 2-0 at Orlando Pirates and then 2-1 away at SuperSport United. They had equalised in the second half against SuperSport but conceded a goal ten minutes from time.

Cape Town City Injuries & Team News


Cape Town City are still without Edmilson Dove at left back due to injury. The side has a clean bill of health otherwise but may make changes in defence. Ioannis Potouridis could start in defence alongside Taariq Fielies.

In attack, Tashreeq Morris and Justin Shonga are pushing for a place so Craig Martin could drop into a right back role to accommodate one of them.

Swallows Form


Swallows sit in 3rd place in the PSL table after 15 matches having won seven and drawn eight matches. Under coach Brandon Truter, the side have not lost a match since March 2020.

Swallows have drawn five of their last six PSL matches. A 1-0 win at Baroka was followed by three 1-1 draws in a row, at home to Chippa United, away to Mamelodi Sundowns and away to SuperSport United.

Swallows then beat Cape United 1-0 at home in the Nedbank Cup. In their last match, Cape Town City lost 2-1 away to SuperSport United.

Swallows Injuries & Team News


Swallows were without Virgil Vries in goal for the last match. If he isn’t fit, then Thela Ngobeni would deputise.

Coach Brandon Truter has a clean bill of health otherwise with plenty of options at fullback and in the wide areas.

Verdict

In this intriguing battle, Cape Town City's attack is backed to prove too much for Swallows to handle. I am tipping Swallows to lose their first league fixture of the season.
