Doc: It Is A Tricky Situation

This past week, the action in the ABSA Premiership continued to take to the stage. SportPesa ambassador, Doctor Khumalo recently spoke in his weekly clubhouse column about the first round of fixtures and pointed out a few players as well as clubs that caught his attention. However, this weekend there are no league fixtures on the cards but fear not because the MTN8 Wafa Wafa quarterfinal encounters will be in full force. Khumalo previews the matches that we will be eager to watch this weekend.

Check out Doc Khumalo’s SportPesa Betting tips for this week

“If any of the teams involved in the tournament lose their games during the week, there might not be enough time to fix their mistakes before the weekend games, as the tournament approach is completely different to the league’s.

“The teams that are not taking part in the competition will have time to work on their shortcomings but miss out on competitive football that would have been gained by those who will be playing in the MTN8.

“It is a tricky situation because you need time to sort out your problems just as much as you need competitive football. The game is a teacher like we always say, and it is only through playing competitive games that you can gauge your improvement.

“Practice matches are completely different to competitive football, although they’re both equally important. I’d like to wish all the teams everything of the best for their weekend games.”
