With 16 top tier teams competing for a spot in the African Champions League, the ABSA PSL promises lots of thrilling moments to South African soccer fans. This season, South Africa’s big three are expected to be at each other’s neck for the league title, with new entrants like Highlands Park doing their best to remain in the league. The three teams, Kaizer Chiefs, Orlando Pirates, and Mamelodi Sundowns are already at the top of the table, with less than ten games left.
Here’s a laydown of this week’s upcoming fixtures and odds of games in the ABSA Premiership titles to help you make the most when betting at Betway.
Maritzburg Vs. Polokwane
While Maritzburg United was eliminated in the Nedbank Cup, the team has had a great season, beating Kaizer Chiefs and Bidvest Wits in the same month. On Friday, 6th March, United will welcome relegation-threatened Polokwane at the Harry Gwala Stadium, hoping to continue with their winning form. In their last five head-to-head matches, Maritzburg has won three times, while Polokwane has managed a single win and one draw.
Baroka Vs. Black Leopards
After losing their away game 2-1 against Polokwane last weekend, the Black Leopards will be looking to redeem themselves this weekend while playing against Baroka. According to the ABSA Premiership preview, the Leopards have a better form than Baroka, currently sitting in the 14th position. Baroka also lost their last match against Bloemfontein Celtic on Sunday.
Golden Arrows Vs. Orlando Pirates
Following their loss in the Soweto derby, Orlando Pirates will attempt to secure an away win in their bid to secure the most prestigious title in South Africa. The Pirates are currently standing two points from the second-place Mamelodi Sundowns, though they’ve played two games more than them.
On the other hand, Golden Arrows are standing at the 8th position after ending their last game on a 1-1 draw against Highland parks on Saturday. The two teams will meet at the Sugar Ray Xulu Stadium on Saturday 7th March.
Kaizer Chiefs Vs. Amazulu
With 48 points and less than ten games left for Kaizer Chiefs, you can expect to see more brilliant performances from this South African giant before the season ends. The Chiefs will meet AmaZulu at the FNB Stadium on Saturday, hoping to continue with their winning streak. As such, the teams are the bookie’s favorite for anyone considering placing a wager at Betway.
Highlands Vs. Supersport Utd
As a new entrant in the ABSA premiership league, Highlands Park started the season as the bookie’s favorite team to finish last. However, the team has gone a long way to defy the odds, currently sitting at the 7th position as they wait to welcome the 4th place Supersport United at the Makhulong Stadium. Both teams have played 23 matches ahead of their Sunday game, and each team has managed to record two wins in their last five games. However, Highlands Park seems to be in a better form since they haven’t lost any match in their last four games.
