Bloemfontein Celtic vs Chippa United Predictions


Bloemfontein Celtic are strong at home but are in a poor run of form. Chippa United have seen an upturn in results since they changed coach and I am tipping this match to end in a draw.

  • Bloemfontein Celtic have drawn their last 2 home matches (Premier Soccer League).
  • Bloemfontein Celtic have drawn 4 of their last 6 matches (Premier Soccer League).
  • Bloemfontein Celtic have seen under 2.5 goals in their last 6 home matches (Premier Soccer League).
  • Chippa United are unbeaten in 4 of their last 5 away matches (Premier Soccer League).
  • Chippa United have seen under 2.5 goals in 3 of their last 4 away matches (Premier Soccer League).

Head to Head


Bloemfontein Celtic lead 7-4 over the 16 matches played between these sides. Five matches had ended in draws.

Their last meeting was in January 2020 as it ended 1-1 in Bloemfontein. Ndumiso Mabena gave Celtic the lead before Chippa levelled through William Twala’s penalty.

Bloemfontein Celtic Form


Celtic are in a poor run of form as their CAF Confederations Cup commitments continue to take a toll on the squad. Their last eight matches in all competitions have seen four defeats and four draws. 

Celtic's most recent results have seen them draw 1-1 at home to Stellenbosch and 0-0 at Mamelodi Sundowns.

In their last match, Celtic were humbled 3-0 away to Rivers United in the CAF Confederations Cup having had an arduous travel route to Nigeria.

Bloemfontein Celtic Injuries & Team News


Siwelele have been without some important players in recent matches due to injury. 

Jackson Mabokgwane has been absent in goal and Sifiso Ngobeni has been injured at left back. Key striker Ndumiso Mabena is another question mark for this match.

All three players are doubtful and would be a major loss as their replacements are not at the same level. Celtic had to fly back from Nigeria on Sunday and may need to rotate the side as fatigue will be a factor.

Chippa United Form


After one win in their first eight leagues, Chippa United changed coach and Dan Malesela took over. His first game saw a 2-2 draw at SuperSport United before a 1-0 defeat at Golden Arrows.

Chippa then won 1-0 at TS Galaxy before taking a point at high-flying Swallows with a 1-1 draw.

In their last match, Chippa United thrashed Black Leopards 3-0 away. Their opposition had ten men for the final 40 minutes but Chippa already led 2-0 at that stage. Andile Mbenyane, Maloisane Mokhele and Kurt Lentjies scored the goals.

Chippa United Injuries & Team News


The Chilli Boys have two injury doubts for this match in Nyiko Mobbie at right-back and Ryan Rae in midfield. Gregory Damons and Ayabulela Konqobe should deputise.

Kurt Lentjies has scored as a substitute in the last two matches and is pushing hard to start in support of the main striker.
