Celtic v AmaZulu Preview

Bloemfontein Celtic will look to jump above AmaZulu on the Absa Premiership table when they host the Durban-based team in a league match at the Kaizer Sebothelo Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

AmaZulu, in eighth place, currently sit one place and two points above Celtic on the league table, and a win for the home side will see them move as high as fifth place on the table.

The Phunya Sele Sele also come into this game in good form and are unbeaten in their last five matches, including a 1-1 draw against Maritzburg United last week.

The Bloemfontein side has claimed 17 points from 10 home matches so far this season.

AmaZulu are also in a good space at the moment after winning their last two league matches, including a 1-0 victory over Polokwane City last week.

The Durban side, however, has not been at their best away from home and has claimed 19 points from their 12 away matches so far this season.

In head-to-head stats, Celtic and AmaZulu have met in 45 league matches since 1985.

Phunya Sele Sele have 17 wins compared to 12 for Usuthu, while 16 matches have been drawn.

Celtic have won 12 of their 23 home matches against AmaZulu, suffering just two defeats in the process.

When the teams met earlier this season in Durban, they played to a 1-1 draw thanks to goals from Bongani Ndulula and Lerato Manzine.
