Welcome to our Orlando Pirates vs AmaZulu betting tips, prediction and odds analysis ahead of their South African Premier Soccer League (PSL) clash at the Orlando Stadium in Soweto on Thursday.
AmaZulu will be looking to maintain second place so that they can qualify for the CAF Champions League for the first time next season. Pirates will also be looking to finish second or third so that they can qualify for continental football next season.
Head To Head
The teams last played at the Jonsson Kings Park last October and drew 1-1.
Pirates have won three out of their last five competitive games against AmaZulu.
AmaZulu have not beaten Pirates since a 1-0 win in August 2013.
Latest Orlando Pirates results
Orlando Pirates enter the game on the back of a 4-0 defeat against Raja Casablanca in a CAF Confederation Cup quarter-final second leg match.
Pirates have lost three out of their last six competitive games.
Pirates have conceded five goals in their last four competitive games, scoring four.
Latest AmaZulu results
AmaZulu head into the game on the back of a 1-0 defeat to Baroka FC.
AmaZulu have won eight out of their last ten games.
AmaZulu have scored six goals in their last three games, conceding twice.
Despite tasting defeat against Baroka two weeks ago, AmaZulu will now be refreshed and there will be less pressure on them as compared to Pirates. Pirates will be under pressure to end the season on a high especially after they were humiliated by Raja in their CAF Confederation Cup quarter-final second leg clash.
AmaZulu have a stubborn defence and I expect them to frustrate Pirates and win this game 1-0.
Anytime Goal Scorers
Orlando Pirates- Vincent Pule- Pirates have been struggling for finesse in front of goal this season so they really do need the expertise of Pule in this game.
AmaZulu- Lehlohonolo Majoro- The veteran has delivered for AmaZulu this season and if Pirates are not on their feet defensively, he will cause them problems due to his composure in front of goal.
Our Odds And Tips In Detail
