Ajax Cape Town v Mamelodi Sundowns (Absa Premiership)

League Rankings: Ajax 15th & Sundowns 8th

Useful facts: Ajax managed their first win of the season last weekend, but the chances of them beating an in-form Mamelodi Sundowns are slim at best, given the Brazilians’ incredible performances that have seen them win three on the trot. Historically, however, both teams have eight wins and five draws from their last 21 encounters.

Tapuwa Kapini: Downs, because of their form.

Manchester united v West Ham (EFL Cup)

League Rankings: Man Utd 6th & West Ham 16th (Premier League)

Useful facts: After an intense 1–1 draw at Old Trafford on Sunday, these two sides meet yet again in the League Cup for what will undoubtedly be a cracker. Both teams have only won one of their last six meetings, with four of them ending in a stalemate. United are on a run of four home games without a win, their worst in the Premier League era, and have won just two of their last six, while West Ham haven’t recorded a win in over a month.

Tapuwa Kapini: I think Manchester will win this one.

Baroka v Orlando Pirates (Absa Premiership)

League Rankings: Baroka 10th & Pirates 6th  

Useful facts: With three wins from their last six and three out of three in the league, Pirates will feel confident about beating their opponents, who have only won one of their last six. However, winning in the Peter Mokaba Stadium will not be an easy task for Augusto Palacios’ men after their defeat to SuperSport United in the Telkom Knockout and, if they are complacent, the team known to be giant killers could cause an upset.

Tapuwa Kapini: I think Pirates will win.

Arsenal v Southampton (EFL Cup)

League rankings: Arsenal 4th & Southampton 10th (Premier League)

Useful facts: Surprisingly, it’s the Saints who have a better record in this encounter in recent years, with them having won three of the last six, compared to Arsenal’s two. However, Arsenal haven’t lost in their last six, with Southampton losing three in that timeframe. So as far as form is concerned, all signs points to another win for Arsene Wenger’s men.

Tapuwa Kapini: Arsenal will win.

Free State Stars v Platinum Stars (Absa Premiership)

Useful facts: Dikwena have had their struggles this season and have only won one of their last eight in the league. However, Ea Lla Koto have yet to win any games this season and have only scored three goals in total. However, the head-to-head record is totally even, with six wins apiece and seven draws coming from the last 19 matches between these teams.

Tapuwa Kapini: Draw.
