Stellenbosch 11/10 Draw 2/1 Marumo Gallants 33/10
Stellies are one of 2 unbeaten sides in the DSTV Premiership. Their record of 4 wins and 3 draws still puts them 6 points behind runaway leader Sundowns but if they win here they would jump from fourth place to second. Their record is even more impressive given only 2 of 7 games have been home fixtures and Stellies won both of those matches, against TS Galaxy (1-0) and Chippa (2-1). More recently road trips to Baroka and Swallows both finished all square at 1-1.
Gallants most recent league outing saw them pass up a golden opportunity for a first league win of the season. They led Royal AM 2-0 heading into the final 15 minutes of a home fixture but conceded twice, the second deep into injury time and had to settle for a 2-2 draw. Gallants have played just 6 league games and now have 3 points against their name. Their 3 road trips saw them go down at Baroka (2-0), Maritzburg (1-0) and Arrows (3-1). Although they have games in hand on other early season strugglers only TS Galaxy are below them in the standings.
Gallants might be better than their log position suggests but this is a tough test against an unbeaten side. Preference is for the goals markets and 2-3 in total will suffice.
Bet: Total match goals 2-3 at 19/20

Sekhukhune 24/10 Draw 2/1 Amazulu 14/10
Sekhukhune are looking for a third successive win after seeing off TS Galaxy with a 1-0 away win and then beating Cape Town City by the same scoreline in a home fixture. Their only other victory so far came early in the season at Maritzburg but with 3 wins, 2 draws and 2 defeats they occupy sixth place in the standings and victory here could see them rise as high as third place.
Amazulu's 7 league matches have delivered 2 wins, 1 defeat and 4 draws and in their most recent DSTV Premiership outing they also won 1-0 at TS Galaxy. Their only other victory came at home to Baroka (1-0) and the only loss came by the same scoreline at Sundowns at the start of the season. Progress in the CAF Champions League suggests their season is gaining momentum after a quiet start which saw them fail to score in the first 3 league games.
I can see this being a tight and perhaps low scoring affair and my play os for Amazulu to score exactly 1 goal.
Bet: Away team exact goals, 1 at 1.55/1
