Betting Tips: Downs On The Run For Second Star

On Friday, June 2, Mamelodi Sundowns will host Esperance in a CAF Champions League encounter. Downs are hoping to retain their title after losing out in the league, however, they face an Esperance side that is in good form.

Platinum Stars travel away to Tunisia as they take on CS Sfaxien in the CAF Confederations Cup. Dikwena lost their previous match against Mbabane Swallows, so a win in this match is a must if the South African club wishes to progress in the tournament.

 

Mamelodi Sundowns v Esperance (CAF Champions League)

League rankings: Sundowns 2nd (Absa Premiership) & Esperance 1st (Tunisian Ligue 1 Group B)

Useful facts: With only one loss from their last eight games, Esperance comes into this tie in blistering form, while Sundowns will hope to get over their disappointment in the Absa Premiership and return to their best, having won only one of their last five games in all competitions. However, that win was a vital away victory against AS Vita, which shows they have what it takes to rise to the occasion.

CS Sfaxien v Platinum Stars (CAF Confederation Cup)

League rankings: Sfaxien 1st (Tunisian Ligue 1 Group A) & Platinum Stars 9th (Absa Premiership)

Useful facts: Dikwena are yet to win a game in this year’s tournament, but have lost just two of their last eight in all competitions. For Sfaxien, it is a different story, with the Tunisian club currently second in Group B, but winning just twice in their last eight in all competitions. It seems likely that this game will ultimately be the key to whether Platinum Stars progress any further in the competition, so they will be going all out.
