Baroka FC vs University of Pretoria Predictions


This is a nervy time for both sides as PSL promotion hangs in the balance. In all three games in the playoffs to date, we have seen no more than two goals combined. I expect this to be another low scoring affair with a draw the likely result.

  • Baroka have failed to win either of their last 2 matches.
  • Baroka have scored 1 goal in their last 2 matches.
  • Baroka have seen under 1.5 goals in their last 2 matches.
  • University of Pretoria beat Baroka in their last meeting.
  • University of Pretoria are unbeaten in their last 2 matches.

Head to Head


These two met 10 days ago, a match the University of Pretoria won 1-0 at home.

Baroka FC Form


Baroka FC come into this clash under huge pressure to take all three points. In their opening two games they have only managed a draw and a defeat.

When the playoff round began on 2 June, Baroka FC suffered a 1-0 defeat away to University of Pretoria. A week ago, on home soil, they could only draw 0-0 against Richards Bay who are in the pound seat with four points at the moment.

This is a must-win game for Baroka as a draw or defeat will effectively knock them out.

Baroka FC Injuries & Team News


Baroka were poor going forward in the last game and may look to bring some speed up front. They need to get goals in this fixture.

University of Pretoria Form


University of Pretoria are not out of the running to win promotion, but they need a result in this fixture. 

In the playoff opener, University of Pretoria beat Baroka 1-0 at home, but they then lost 1-0 at Richards Bay. A draw here may be enough, but they will have to win at home against Richards Bay and hope that Baroka can upset the odd against the current table leaders.

University of Pretoria Injuries & Team News


I expect the University of Pretoria to field a similar side to their last outing. There has been a serious lack of goals, but they are generally very solid at the back.

Verdict

I am backing this fixture to end in a 0-0 draw.
