Swallows vs AmaZulu Predictions


Both of these sides are on unbeaten runs and are playing well. Swallows are strong defensively but are struggling to win matches. AmaZulu will feel they can leave with something from this match. I am tipping a draw.

  • Swallows have drawn 4 of their last 5 matches (Premier Soccer League).
  • Swallows have seen under 2.5 goals in their last 6 matches (all competitions).
  • AmaZulu have drawn 4 of their last 8 matches (all competitions).
  • AmaZulu have seen under 2.5 goals in 6 of their last 8 matches (all competitions).

Head to Head


AmaZulu hold a 10-8 advantage versus AmaZulu over their previous 22 matches with four draws.

Their last meeting was in January 2016 as Swallows were beaten 2-1 at home by AmaZulu.

Swallows Form


Swallows are in superb form under coach Brandon Truter after their promotion to the Premier Soccer League. After 14 matches, they sit 3rd in the table with seven wins and seven draws. Swallows have not lost a match since March 2020.

The side have drawn four of their last five league matches by a 1-1 scoreline with a solitary 1-0 away win at Baroka. Their last three matches have seen a 1-1 home draw with Chippa United, a 1-1 draw away at Mamelodi Sundowns and another 1-1 away at SuperSport United.

Swallows beat Cape United 1-0 at home in their last match in the Nedbank Cup. Kamohelo Mahlatsi scored the goal.

Swallows Injuries & Team News


Swallows rested several players in the Nedbank Cup and all of them should return. That includes Virgil Vries in goal, Njabulo Ngcobo at centre back and Tlakusani Mthethwa in midfield.

Kamohelo Mahlatsi will be hoping his goal in the last match will earn him a fourth league start of the season on the right wing.

AmaZulu Form


After a slow start with two losses in his first four matches in charge, Benni McCarthy has AmaZulu in great form and climbing the table. The side are up to 7th in the Premier Soccer League table after three consecutive victories.

After a 1-1 draw at SuperSport United, AmaZulu beat Baroka 2-0 away before a 2-1 home win against Stellenbosch. A last-gasp 4-3 home victory against Bloemfontein Celtic followed.

In their last match, AmaZulu won on penalties in the Nedbank Cup after a 1-1 draw at Golden Arrows.

AmaZulu Injuries & Team News


AmaZulu are expected to recall Veli Mothwa in goal after he was rested in the Nedbank Cup. Tapelo Xoki will also return at centre back to captain the side after a breather.

In attack, Luvuyo Memela may need to content himself with a place on the bench having had some recent niggling injuries.
