Betting Tips: The Nedbank Cup Last Eight Begins!

Manchester United host Anderlecht in a UEFA Europa league encounter on Thursday, April 20. The Red Devils go into this fixture in a better form as compared to their opponents and will be seeking to progress to the next round of competition.

The Nedbank Cup challenge quarterfinals take place this weekend as Kaizer Chiefs face off against SuperSport United. Matsatsantsa will be hoping to get back to winning ways after their defeat against Mamelodi Sundowns in a league encounter on Wednesday. However, Amakhosi are in good form and will not be an easy task for Stuart Baxter’s charges.

Orlando Pirates battle out against Bloemfontein Celtic on Saturday, April 22, in a Nedbank Cup tie. The Sea Robbers have not won any silverware this season and with the league title also out of their reach, their only hope is winning the Nedbank Cup, but they will have to face an unpredictable Celtic side.

 

Man Utd v Anderlecht (Europa League)

League rankings: Man Utd 5th (Premier League) & Anderlecht 1st (Belgian Jupiler Pro)

Useful facts: With one win for each team and a draw coming from the last three games between these two, it’s tough to pick a winner. Mourinho’s men will be desperate to go all the way in the competition to secure a place in next season’s Champions League and having gone undefeated in their last seven Europa League games, there’s no doubt that they have the pedigree to progress. Add to that the confidence that will be drawn from their convincing win over Chelsea last weekend, they might be able to edge it, especially considering that they have an away goal.

Kaizer Chiefs v SuperSport United (Nedbank Cup)

League rankings: Chiefs 2nd & SuperSport 5th (Absa Premiership)

Useful facts: Chiefs come into this game as the in-form team, having last lost a game way back in December last year, while SuperSport won only two of their last five in all competitions.  But the historical record is almost entirely equal, with Chiefs winning eight and SuperSport winning nine of their previous 21 encounters in all competitions.

Siyabonga Nkosi: SuperSport

 

Orlando Pirates v Bloemfontein Celtic (Nedbank Cup)

League rankings: Pirates 9th & Celtic 13th (Absa Premiership)

Useful facts: Pirates have seen their form finally start to turn around as they approach what could be a season-defining game with three wins from their last five in all competitions. Celtic have only two wins in that timeframe, but have tasted defeat only once since Luc Eymael’s appointment. Historically, Siwelele are just edged out by the Buccaneers, winning eight, but losing 10 of their last 23 matches against them.

Siyabonga Nkosi: Pirates
