02/03/2021 Daily Predictions: South African DSTV Premiership-Orlando Pirates Vs Bloemfontein Celtic

Welcome to our Orlando Pirates vs Bloemfontein Celtic betting tips, prediction and odds analysis ahead of their DSTV Premiership clash on Tuesday.

Inconsistent Pirates will be looking for a victory in order to exert pressure on the three teams above them whilst struggling Celtic will also be looking for some points in order to increase the gap between themselves and the relegation zone. Phunya Sele Sele are just three points above perennial strugglers Black Leopards who are in 15th place on the log and occupy the relegation playoff position.

Pirates enter the game in fourth spot and are seven points adrift of league leaders Mamelodi Sundowns. Both sides enter the game in similar form having won two out of their last five league games each. Based on current form, I expect Pirates to win this game.

Head to Head Stats

Pirates are unbeaten against Celtic in their last five games.

Pirates have won their last two consecutive games against Celtic. Their most recent victory over Phunya Sele Sele was in the MTN 8 final last December which they won 2-1.

The last time that Celtic defeated Pirates was back in August 2018 when they defeated the Sea Robbers 1-0.

Prediction

Orlando Pirates should control this game for large periods. The probable result is a 1-0 victory for them. Celtic are undergoing a difficult run of form and will find it hard to penetrate their defence. I do not see Phunya Sele Sele causing problems to the Pirates defence.

Anytime goal scorers

Orlando Pirates- Deon Hotto. Hotto has been in good form this season, chipping in with three league goals so far. He has proven that he can be a threat to any team in the league when called upon to assist for his team as a forward.

Bloemfontein Celtic- Ndumiso Mabena. The veteran striker is still able to cause trouble against any side in the league due to his football intelligence. He will quickly find the back of the net if opposition defenders are napping.
