Ed Malyon's Sure Thing: Sundowns tipped for away win at Bloemfontein


Bloemfontein Celtic vs Mamelodi Sundowns

A trip to the South African Premier Soccer League is in store for today’s bet, where the table-topping Sundowns go to Bloemfontein expecting to return with all three points.

Their defence is solid and the best in the league, but their real strength lies in their forward line, which boasts several internationals, and has given them a goal difference that is sixteen goals better than Orlando Pirates who are back in second.

Teko Modise is the creative hub, while Katlego Mphela’s ability to score from anywhere means that no-one has scored more league goals than him this season.

The real kicker though, is the Sundowns’ away form.

If the league were defined by only results gained at home, they would be down in the bottom half of the table in 9th position. It’s their startling run of results on the road which has kept them top of the pile, and they can currently boast seven wins from their last eight games, conceding in just three of those, and winning one game 24-0.

Celtic on the other hand, have lost four of their last five games without even scoring, meaning that they will struggle to overcome their trigger-happy visitors.

The price for an away win is a generous 2.05.
