Casric Stars vs Maritzburg United Predictions

Stars can no longer be promoted and therefore may not be fully focused. Maritzburg know the task is to simply win their next two matches. I am tipping an away win to nil.

Head to Head

These sides have met on one previous occasion. 

They faced off 10 days ago as Maritzburg United won 2-0 at home.

Casric Stars Form

Casric have lost all three promotion playoffs and can no longer reach the top flight. They ended the league season with three draws, which saw them finish third in the National First Division.

A 2-2 draw at All Stars FC on the final day cost them top spot and a place in the top flight. They were beaten 1-0 at home by Cape Town Spurs in their opening promotion playoff fixture.

After losing 2-0 at Maritzburg United, they were beaten again in midweek. They lost 1-0 at Cape Town Spurs despite facing ten men for the final 25 minutes.

Coach Bucs Mthombeni has no suspensions and just one injury concern in forward Keletso Sifama. 

There could be a number of changes to the XI with their fate already sealed. 

Maritzburg United Form

Maritzburg took four points from their final two league matches to finish 15th. They’ve got three points from two playoffs and will be safe with wins in their final two matches.

After a 1-0 home win against Stellenbosch, they drew 1-1 at a heavily-rotated Mamelodi Sundowns in the final PSL match. Their opening playoff saw a 2-0 home win against Casric Stars. 

Their most recent playoff was last Saturday as they were beaten 1-0 at Cape Town Spurs. Thanks to goal difference, even two 1-0 wins will see them remain in the top flight.

Coach Fadlu Davids will go all out to win this match, knowing that a draw sees them relegated. Attacking Kimvuidi Karim is sure to be recalled for this one. 

There are no injury concerns nor suspended players for this must-win fixture.


I am backing Maritzburg to win this one as Casric have nothing to play for. I will be backing a win to nil as well.
