SSU V AmaZulu In Numbers

Absa Premiership: SuperSport United vs. AmaZulu

Date: 28 January 2014

Time: 19h30

Venue: Lucas Moripe Stadium

After what coach Cavin Johnson described as a 'steal' following their 2-1 win over Orlando Pirates in their opening Absa Premiership game in 2014, SuperSport United are looking to wrap up another win against AmaZulu tonight at the Lucas Moripe Stadium.

Matsatsanta a Pitori could move well into second place if they overcome Craig Rosslee's stubborn side that held Bucs to a 1-all draw during midweek. Usuthu themselves are capable of overtaking SuperSport United with a win, though they have played more games.

Key Stats:

With Matsatsantsa at home tonight against Usuthu, it seems that the hosts have another reason why they could walk away with all the three points. Cavin Johnson’s team boast amazing stats compared to the visitors tonight. They have shots on goal that stand at 13.1 as well as a successful pass rate of 313.4. However, AmaZulu will bank on their impressive entries into the final third that stands at 68.5, with SuperSport United managing a low 63.2.
