Polokwane City vs Bidvest Wits Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips 


Polokwane City and Bidvest Wits are set to produce an open contest in their South African Premier Division clash at the Pietersburg Stadium. BTTS has been a regular outcome in their recent meetings and Wednesday’s clash is tipped to follow a similar pattern at odds of 2.03. Both teams also appear evenly matched at the moment and should battle to a draw at 3.07.

Polokwane City FC Form & Team News


Polokwane City are coming off a 1-0 victory at home against AmaZulu in their last PSL fixture. They laboured for much of the contest before Mohammed Anas struck the winner in the third minute of injury time.

Zlatko Krmpotic's men are unbeaten at the start of the season and challenging near the top of the table. They are priced at 2.86 for a win on Wednesday but have conceded six goals in their last four PSL matches which makes BTTS a more likely outcome.

Mohammed Anas has impressed for Polokwane in recent matches and has scored two goals in his last three PSL appearances. He is set to retain his place in attack on Wednesday while Nicholas Motloung and Sibusiso Mbonani should continue their partnership in central defence.

Bidvest Wit FC Form & Team News 


Bidvest Wits suffered a 1-0 defeat at home against Baroka FC last time out in the PSL. The Clever Boys were unlucky to have come away empty handed as they had several chances to score with Mxolisi Macuphu and Keegan Ritchie drawing saves from the Baroka goalkeeper.

It was the first defeat in seven PSL matches for Wedson Nyirenda's men who have been in good form. A win for Gavin Hunt's men is valued at odds of 2.59 but having conceded in four of their last six matches, I am tipping BTTS here.

Terrence Dzvukamanja has scored five goals in his last seven PSL appearances and should lead the line for Bidvest on Wednesday. He is likely to be joined in attack by Mxolisi Macuphu who impressed last time out against Baroka.

Polokwane City vs Bidvest Wits Head to Head 


Bidvest Wits have claimed five wins and six draws while Polokwane City have three victories from 14 previous matches. Three of the last four matches have produced BTTS with the most recent PSL meeting ending 3-3.

Polokwane City vs Bidvest Wits Match Up


Mohammed Anas has been in good form and will be the one to watch for Polokwane on Wednesday. He has a good understanding with Bongile Booi, who was on target in this fixture last season and both men should trouble the Bidvest defence. 

Bidvest Wits will look to Terrence Dzvukamanja to provide the spark in attack having found the net five times in his last seven matches. With Mxolisi Macuphu also impressing in recent weeks, the visitors should have enough to get the better of the Polokwane backline.
