Mamelodi Sundowns continues their quest to defend their league title on Sunday when they host troubled and bottom of the log Black Leopards at Loftus.

A win for the Brazilians will see them increase their lead at the top while Leopards will sink deeper into relegation trouble.

This round of fixtures is also chance for other pacesetters Golden Arrows, Orlando Pirates and SuperSport United to maintain or improve their positions in the top half of the table.

BetXChange gives you this latest round of fixtures before the international break which has a new bonus stretch that applies to taking multiple bets where you can receive a massive 170% additional boost on your winning.

Stellenbosch v SuperSport United

SuperSport United coach Kaitano Tembo knows better than anyone that a win in the Cape Winelands against inconsistent Stellenbosch will take them from fourth spot to second.

United are on a lean patch at the moment having failed to register a win in their last four matches after a run of three draws and one loss.

On the other hand, Stellenbosch finds themselves outside the top eight bracket and they go into this clash on the back of a 2-1 defeat to rampaging Mamelodi Sundowns last weekend at home.

Stellenbosch coach Steve Barker will be aware that they can’t afford to drop more points as they lose further ground on Cape Town City and TS Galaxy who are above them on the log standings.

We go with a SuperSport win in this match as they have been good travelers while Stellenbosch have struggled at home.

Pick: SuperSport Wins 1.14 at BetXChange

 

Golden Arrows v Cape Town City

Golden Arrows is one of the form teams in the league over the last five games with three wins, one draw and one defeat and that good run has elevated them to second spot ahead of Orlando Pirates on goal difference.

Arrows are currently on a two match winning streak but their ambition of maintain their momentum is threatened by the highly unpredictable Cape Town City who are have ambitions of forcing their way into the top eight.

Our pick here is for both teams to score in what may turn out to be a highly exciting football match and but we see Arrows registering three points because of their impressive recent form.

Pick: Arrows Wins 1.14 at BetXChange

 

Chippa United v Swallows

After a good start to the season, Swallows have gone off the boil with a recent unsatisfactory run of seven matches without a win that has resulted in them losing touch with log-leaders Mamelodi Sundowns.

During this period of frustration for coach Brandon Truter, Swallows have only managed one win and six draws in the league.

They will fancy their chances of returning back to winning ways when they travel to the Eastern Cape to take on struggling Chippa United who have not won in their last five matches.

Chippa United coach Dan Malesela has overseen three draws and two losses in their last two matches to leave the fourth form the bottom and faced with a mighty battle to revive their campaign.

We think that smart money for a win is on Swallows in this match as Chippa are low on confidence and they have only managed one win after seven matches at home.

 Pick: Swallows Wins 1.14 at BetXChange

 

Baroka v Bloemfontein Celtic

This is a meeting of two teams that have endured a frustrating season so far as they have often flattered to deceive.

Baroka started the season with promise as they were in the top half of the table during the opening weeks of the season but they have lost the spark and are now fighting to keep their place in the top eight.

Celtic, who had also endured turmoil in management with a number of retrenchments to some staff members this week, have struggled to find consistency and that is illustrated by the fact that they go into go into this match fifth from the bottom.

This is a close one to call but our pick is Baroka getting all the three points at home.

Pick: Baroka Wins 1.50 at BetXChange

 

TS Galaxy v Maritzburg United

Motivation for rookies TS Galaxy and their coach Owen Da Gama is knowledge that three points that will entrench them into the top eight against Maritzburg United who have struggled to move into higher gears this season.

Galalxy players will be motivated as their last league outing yielded three points and as many goals against Black Leopards and they will be looking to continue with their winning run.

For second from the bottom Matritzburg, a win may see them leapfrog to 14th place on the log and refresh their chances of launching the great escape as they are running out of time to move out of the relegation zone.

Pick: TS Galaxy Wins 0.89 at BetXChange

 

Kaizer Chiefs v Orlando Pirates

The Soweto Derby is without doubt the match of the weekend.

Chiefs host Pirates for the 100th meeting between the bitter rivals who have experienced mixed results so far this season.

The Buccaneers are pushing log-leaders Mamelodi Sundowns at the top of the table while Amakhosi, who have not won in their last five matches, are struggling on the middle of the table.

A closer look at their recent results shows that Pirates won their last two matches while Chiefs could only managed draws in their period and this makes Pirates firm favourites to walk away from FNB Stadium in Sunday with the bragging rights.

Pick: Pirates Wins 1.26 at BetXChange

 

AmaZulu v Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila (TTM)

One of the form teams in the league at the moment is AmaZulu with four wins and a draw from their last five matches and they go into this match looking to move one place to fifth on the log. Their mission will not be a tough one as TTM have struggled all season to prove their credentials as a proper team in the paid ranks.

We predict an easy win for AmaZulu at home.

Pick: AmaZulu Wins 0.71 at BetXChange

 

Mamelodi Sundowns v Black Leopards

Log-leaders Sundowns will register their fifth consecutive win with three points against bottom of the log Black Leopards at Loftus on Sunday and at the same time further increase their lead at the top with games in hand.

If they get all the three points, the Brazilians would have competed 26 matches without defeat in all competitions this season to further illustrate their status as the best team in the PSL and among the best on the continent where they have qualified for the Caf Champions League, quarter-final stage with two games to spare.

We predict an easy walk in the park for Sundowns against this struggling Leopards side that has lost their last three matches.

 Pick: Sundowns Wins 0.28 at BetXChange
