Eymael Looking To Bounce Back After Amakhosi Defeat!

On Wednesday evening, Golden Arrows fell short in a 1-0 home loss to Mamelodi Sundowns. Abafana Bes’thende will be looking to bounce back over the weekend as they face off against Chippa United who recorded their first win last weekend.

While Free State Stars are a wounded side and will be seeking for a victory as they host Highlands Park. 

This week, former Bidvest Wits midfielder, Ntokozo Sikhakhane predicts who will walk away victorious and which teams will end their matches in a draw. Do you agree with Sikhakhane?

 

Golden Arrows v Chippa United (Premier Soccer League) 

Soccer 6 Pool: Match 2 Soccer 6 Pool 21 Sept S6 V3 

League Rankings: Golden Arrows 11th & Chippa United 14th 

Useful facts: It’s a battle between two teams that have yet to kick into gear this season, with the Chilli Boys particularly needing the points to climb up the league table. However, in Abafana Bes’thende, they face a wounded lion who will be out to claim the maximum points in front of a home crowd. Coaching is a pressure job and a good result for Clinton Larsen and his young charges will do a lot to stop the panic buttons from being pressed. Meanwhile, despite Eric Tinkler being new to the seat, he will be aware that anything less than a win could mean curtains for him in the Chippa coaching job. A 0-0 draw was the result the last time these two teams met, back in January.   

Ntokozo Sikhakhane: Draw

 

Free State Stars v Highlands Park (Premier Soccer League) 

Soccer 6 Pool: Match 5 Soccer 6 Pool 21 Sept S6 V3 

League Rankings: Free State Stars 15th & Highlands Park 6th 

Useful facts: It’s bizarre that Ea Lla Koto, who finished last season on a high by winning the Nedbank Cup, are sitting near the basement of the log table, while Absa Premiership returnees Highlands Park are inside the Top Eight. There is a point to prove at Goble Park this weekend, with Luc Eymael eager to outwit Owen da Gama, whose side is yet to be beaten so far. The two sides have struggled in front of goal, with the Bethlehem-based side having scored just five so far and the Lions of the North six. A goalless draw wouldn’t be a surprising result. 

Ntokozo Sikhakhane: Draw

 

Getafe v Atletico Madrid (LaLiga)

Soccer 6 Pool: Match 4 Soccer 6 Pool 21 Sept S6 V3 

League Rankings: Getafe 7th & Atletico Madrid 9th (La Liga)

Useful facts: It’s still early days in the season and Atletico have had a slow start, picking up only one win in their four games so far. Getafe have done slightly better and a win for them at home could see them landing in the top three bracket, depending on other results. They will definitely fancy their chances, as they have conceded only two goals thus far. Atletico Madrid, however, had the better of Getafe in the last encounter between the two teams, which was in May.    

Ntokozo Sikhakhane: Atletico Madrid win
