Can Ea Lla Koto Steer Clear Of The Relegation Zone As They Prepare For AmaZulu?

Real Madrid might be out of the LaLiga title race, however this weekend they will be looking to earn themselves three points when they host 13th-placed Celta Vigo. With Zinedine Zidane back at the helm, the Los Blancos players will want to impress their manager as he returns to the Santiago Bernabeu. 

On the local front, an on-form AmaZulu side will travel away to face Free State Stars. For Ea Lla Koto this match is vital as they gun to move up the log standings in their quest to steer themselves clear from the bottom of the table, however, it does not get easy for them against an Usuthu side that previously secured a 2-0 victory against title contenders, Bidvest Wits.

What will be the outcome of the following matches? Former Golden Arrows midfielder, Bonang Ngaka gives his predictions. Do you agree with his choices?

 

Free State Stars v AmaZulu (Premier Soccer League)

Match 3 Soccer 6 Pool March 16 S6 V2 P2

League Rankings: Free State Stars 14th & AmaZulu 10th 

Useful facts: A win is hugely important for Free State Stars if they are to move up from the basement, but they come up against an AmaZulu side that is high on confidence after derailing Bidvest Wits in their league title ambitions last weekend. Nikola Kavazovic is a man under immense pressure after their 1-0 defeat to SuperSport United this past weekend. There will also be the small matter of revenge at play after Usuthu got the better of Ea Lla Koto with a 2-1 scoreline at the beginning of the season.  

Bonang Ngaka: AmaZulu win

 

Burnley v Leicester City (English Premier League)

Match 4 Soccer 6 Pool March 16 S6 V2 P2

League Rankings: Burnley 17th & Leicester City 10th 

Useful facts: Burnley have conceded a whopping 57 goals in 30 league games so far this season, which has seen them occupy 17th place on the log standings, and Leicester City will look to pile on more misery on the home side on Saturday. The visitors will be out to continue with their winning ways, after registering a 3-1 victory over Fulham last Saturday. Burnley, on the other hand, will want to bounce back after their 4-2 defeat to Liverpool this past weekend. The last time the two sides met, in November last year, the game ended in a 0-0 draw. 

Bonang Ngaka: Leicester City win

 

Real Madrid v Celta Vigo (LaLiga)

Match 5 Soccer 6 Pool March 16 S6 V2 P2

League Rankings: Real Madrid 3rd & Celta Vigo 18th 

Useful facts: Looking at the log table, one is tempted to term this match-up ‘men against boys’. Real Madrid are 12 points adrift of log-leaders Barcelona and could not possibly be having any title ambitions, but will want to win their remaining games of the season. The visitors have conceded 45 goals in 27 league games, the second-worst defensive record in the league, and Los Blancos should be too hot for them to handle. Just as well, Zinedine Zidane is back in charge, and the players will surely want to impress the coach that’s won so many titles as both a player and a coach at the LaLiga giants.   

Bonang Ngaka: Real Madrid win
