Richards Bay vs Stellenbosch Predictions


On current form, there is only one winner. Stellenbosch are playing really well and are in great form on the road too. I’m backing them to reach the final with a clean sheet.

  • Richards Bay have lost 10 of their last 14 home matches (PSL).
  • Richards Bay have failed to score in 7 of their last 13 home matches (PSL).
  • Stellenbosch have won 6 of their last 7 matches.
  • Stellenbosch have won 4 of their last 5 away matches.

Head to Head


Richards Bay hold a 4-2 advantage over Stellenbosch with one draw in seven fixtures.

Stellies have won the last two meetings including 2-1 in the league in November 2023.

Richards Bay Form & Team News


Richards Bay have won just three of their last 28 fixtures in all competitions. They’ve tasted victory twice in the last six matches after just one win in 22 before that.

After A 3-1 home loss to Cape Town City in the league, they won on penalties in the Carling Knockout Cup quarter-final after a 0-0 home draw vs Orlando Pirates. 

A 2-1 loss at Stellenbosch preceded a 1-0 win at home against Cape Town Spurs. On Saturday, they drew 0-0 at home in the league with Orlando Pirates.

Coach Kaitano Tembo will start Jackson Mabokgwane in goal. Salim Magoola has not featured in the Cup this season.

Simphiwe Mcineka is set to start at centre back in preference to Austin Dube. Somila Ntsundwana is set to return on the left wing.

Richards Bay Predicted Lineup


Mabokgwane; Dlamini, Mthethwa, Mcineka, Banda; Mabaso, Komane, Mhlongo; Barns, Mbuthuma, Ntsundwana.

Stellenbosch Form & Team News


Stellies are in great form with no losses in seven matches. They have four wins in the last five league matches and sit fourth in the PSL table. 

A 2-0 win at Polokwane City in the Cup quarter-finals was followed by a 2-1 home win league win against Richards Bay. After drawing 0-0 at Chippa United, they returned from the FIFA break with a 1-0 victory at AmaZulu.

In midweek, Stellies thrashed Cape Town Spurs 3-0 away in the derby. 

Coach Steve Barker made a handful of changes in midweek. Sage Stephens will return in goal and Thabo Maloisane will start at the back.

Fawaaz Basadien and Genino Palace are also set for recalls. They will play at left back and in central midfield respectively. 

Stellenbosch Predicted Lineup


Stephens; Van Rooyen, Maloisane, Toure, Basadien; Palace, Nduli; Titus, Adams, Oura; Rayners.

Verdict

I'm backing Stellenbosch to win this match in 90 minutes. I also see them keeping a clean sheet as Richards Bay don't score many goals.
