Maritzburg United vs Marumo Gallants Predictions


Marumo Gallants have drawn 0-0 in four of their last five league matches. They have a strong defence but their attack has produced just 0.8 xG in total in their last two PSL matches. I am tipping a draw with Maritzburg struggling this season.

  • Maritzburg United have drawn 3 of their last 5 home matches (Premier Soccer League).          
  • Maritzburg United have failed to score in their last 2 home matches (Premier Soccer League).
  • Marumo Gallants have drawn 4 of their last 5 matches (Premier Soccer League).
  • Marumo Gallants have seen under 1.5 goals in 6 of their last 7 matches (Premier Soccer League).

Head to Head


These sides sit at 2-2 across their previous four matches with no draws.

Their last meeting saw Marumo Gallants win 1-0 at home in May.

Maritzburg United Form


Maritzburg finished just three points above the relegation places last season. They have lost six of their last ten matches.

They began this season with a 2-1 defeat at Golden Arrows despite producing 1.2 xG more than their opponents. A 2-0 defeat to Sekhukhune United followed to end a seven match undefeated home run.

Their last match saw a 1-0 win at Baroka despite having just three shots all match. Maritzburg scored through Richard Zumah before playing the final 39 minutes with ten men after Bongokuhle Hlongwane was sent off.

Maritzburg United Injuries & Team News


Maritzburg United sold top scorer Thabiso Kutumela in the off-season pacey striker Bongokuhle Hlongwane in suspended in attack.

Veteran centre back Clayton Daniels is a doubt so Nazeer Allie could start. Richard Zumah should lead the line with youngster Rowan Human in support.

Marumo Gallants Form


Marumo Gallants finished in 12th place in PSL table last season and won the Nedbank Cup. Their trophy win qualified the team for the CAF Confederations Cup.

They started the season with a poor 2-0 defeat at Baroka where they produced 0.6 xG. A solid and deserved 0-0 draw against Orlando Pirates followed despite just 0.2 xG put forward.

Their last two matches have been in the CAF Confederations Cup as they beat Futuro Kings 4-2 on aggregate. A 2-1 away defeat was followed by a 3-0 win at home as Celimphilo Ngema scored twice and Thabo Mnyamane once.

Marumo Gallants Injuries & Team News


Gallants lost centre back Alfred Ndengane in the transfer window so Ayanda Nkili should start regularly in his place.

Thabo Mnyamane should play as a false nine with striker Lerato Lamola out of favour and the other options not trusted. Coach Sebastien Migne could name an unchanged side from the Futuro Kings second leg.
