Orlando Pirates will welcome Golden Arrows to Orlando Stadium for a matchday 0 fixture in South Africa Premier Soccer League. The last meeting on 20th November 2021 ended in a 0-0 draw. Both sides have met fifteen times in the most recent seasons. Orlando Pirates has won 6 matches, and Golden Arrows triumphed in 3. Recent outings average 1.87 goals, while both teams score 40% of the time.
Orlando Pirates’s last game in the South Africa Premier Soccer League against AmaZulu at home ended in a 2-1 win. Although The Buccaneers played less with the ball than their opponent, it was enough to get the result they were hoping for. Orlando Pirates played much better in the first half and scored in the 37th and 48th minute.
Golden Arrows’s previous game in the competition versus Moroka Swallows ended in an away 2-2 draw. The whole team didn’t turn up, so in the end the draw was a good result. Golden Arrows outshone Moroka Swallows early on and scored in the 49th and 75th minute.
Since the start of the season, Ezikamagebhula is more dominant at home. They have five wins out of 9 games on home soil. Although Orlando Pirates is among the most solid home teams in the league, they are far from perfect. Their defence is not as good as expected with just 33% home clean sheets.
Golden Arrows has picked up 10 points from the previous six league games. They still have a lot to prove when playing away from home. Golden Arrows wins 1.00 points per away game, a bit less than their home record shows. To improve results, they have to be more compact in defence. Golden Arrows kept a clean sheet in just 25% of their visits.
It is not a surprise that the hosts stand out as a favourite to win this one. Recently they enjoy playing at home, having won three consecutive matches. The Bucs is currently unbeaten at home in six games. Since the start of the season, they have lost at home on just one occasion.
Abafana Bes’thende (The Backheel Boys) failed to win in two consecutive away games. It will be a big surprise to turn up on Wednesday and win against The Bucs.
I am confident that the hosts will prove their worth and triumph with another home victory. Orlando Pirates wins on average 2.00 points per home game, compared to 1.00 points per away game for Golden Arrows. My prediction is Orlando Pirates to win.
Lately, there are not that many high-scoring games for both sides. I am confident that the tendency will keep going and at least one team will keep a clean sheet. A bet that both sides will score wins in an average of 66% of Orlando Pirates’s home and Golden Arrows’s away games. My prediction is Both Teams to Score: No.
