AmaZulu vs TS Galaxy Predictions


I see this being a hard-fought match between two solid defences. A draw is my tip in 90 minutes with extra time required.

Head to Head


AmaZulu hold a 3-2 advantage over TS Galaxy across seven previous meetings with two draws.

Usuthu won 1-0 against Galaxy when the sides last met in August.

AmaZulu Form & Team News


AmaZulu have lost just three times in 14 matches in all competitions this season. Prior to losing this weekend, they were unbeaten in six at home with five clean sheets.

Usuthu won 1-0 at Kaizer Chiefs in the Carling Knockout Cup before successive league draws: 0-0 vs Orlando Pirates at home and 1-1 at Chippa United.

A 3-0 home Cup win followed over Golden Arrows preceded a 3-1 league win away at the same opponents. On Saturday, AmaZulu missed a penalty in a 1- home setback vs Stellenbosch.

Taariq Fielies is an injury doubt in defence. Thembela Sikhakhane is expected to return at right wingback.

Tshepang Moremi could be recalled up front alongside Sede Dion. Augustine Kwem will have to settle for a bench role.

AmaZulu Predicted Lineup


Mothwa: Sikhakhane, Gumede, Mobara, Mphahlele, Hanamub; Brooks, Motshwari, Ngema; Moremi, Dion.

TS Galaxy Form & Team News


Prior to their win on Sunday, The Rockets had won just once in eight league matches. They twice won in penalties to reach this Cup semi-final.

A 2-0 home win vs Sekhukhune United ended a five-match winless run in the league. A 3-2 home loss to SuperSport United and a 0-0 draw followed at Sekhukhune in the Carling Knockout Cup quarter-finals (won on penalties). 

After losing 1-0 at Moroka Swallows in the league, they bounced back after the FIFA break. TS Galaxy won 3-0 at home against Polokwane City on Sunday. 

Coach Sead Ramovic is without Bernard Parker in midfield after a broken leg. Rwandan goalkeeper Fiacre Ntwari is set to be recalled. 

Serbian striker Samir Nurkovic is pushing for a start. He scored from the bench on Sunday.

TS Galaxy Predicted Lineup


Ntwari; Munyai, Sanoka, Mahlangu, Mvelase; Sebelebele, Mbunjana, Khiba, Mahlangu; Vidal; Nurkovic.

Verdict

I'm tipping this match to be low-scoring with a draw during 90 minutes. These sides are evenly matched.
