Mouloudia Alger host Platinum Stars in a CAF Confederations Cup tie on Friday, June 30. Dikwena have no chances of progressing in the tournament after a winless run, while their opponents have a fairly good record in the group.

St George takes on Mamelodi Sundowns in the CAF Champions League. Masandawana is looking to retain their African title, however, this encounter will not be an easy match for both sides.

SuperSport United travel away as they battle out against Horoya. United need a win to ensure that they secure a spot in the knockout stages. However, Horoya is on a winning streak and will be looking to continue with their positive form.

Mouloudia Alger v Platinum Stars (CAF Confederation Cup)

League rankings: Alger 1st & Platinum Stars 4th (Group B)

Useful facts: Alger have had a relatively easy run in Group B, with two wins and two draws, with both wins coming from their home games. However, Dikwena, who are winless in the tournament thus far and have no chance of progressing, will be looking at their 1-1 draw at home against their opponents as a source of inspiration and will hope to bow out of the tournament in style.

Steve Lekoelea: Platinum Stars are going to lose. They’re not doing well.

St George v Mamelodi Sundowns (CAF Champions League)

League rankings: St George 3rd & Sundowns 2nd (Group C)

Useful facts: Sundowns have actually fared better away from home than in front of their own fans in this year’s tournament, with a win and a draw, as opposed to a draw and a loss. Nonetheless, the Brazilians are winless in their last two games in this tournament and the Ethiopians are undefeated at home, which includes a win over AS Vita on 4 June. Furthermore, with both clubs level on points, having played out a draw in Pretoria already, the stakes will be high and the game will not be easy to call.

Steve Lekoelea: Sundowns have been doing well in their away games. They’ll win or draw, at least.

Horoya v SuperSport Utd (CAF Confederation Cup)

League rankings: Horoya 1st & SuperSport 2nd (Group D)

Useful facts: A top of the table clash will see SuperSport motivated after their Nedbank Cup win over the weekend, but they know that anything but a win could cost them a place in the knockout rounds, with TP Mazembe level on points with them and playing bottom-placed Mounana. However, playing Horoya, who won both of their last two games, will not be an easy task at all. Having scored nine goals so far in the tournament (the highest return in the group), Matsatsantsa will be confident of scoring an away goal at the very least, which could be crucial as the group stages draw to a conclusion.

Steve Lekoelea: That one will be a draw.
