Polokwane City v Mamelodi Sundowns betting tips, prediction & odds; PSL preview
Welcome to our Polokwane City v Mamelodi Sundowns betting tips, prediction and odds update ahead of their Premier Soccer League clash on Wednesday night.
Second-placed Mamelodi Sundowns must win to remain in the ABSA Premiership title race with their opponent the lowly Polokwane City. The pair will clash at Peter Mokaba Stadium, Polokwane, from 6pm (CAT).
Downs enter the game behind league leaders Kaizer Chiefs on goal difference. They will be aware that they will move to the top of the league standings should they win and Chiefs end up dropping points against Chippa United.
Guide: Football Betting in 2020
Downs will be looking to bounce back in style after having been upset 1-0 by Baroka FC on Sunday. They looked lethargic in front of goal. Pitso Mosimane’s side might have been suffering from match fatigue in the upset loss as they beat Kaizer Chiefs three days earlier.
Mosimane could not ask for a better opposition, given the context of the season. Whilst Downs form has not been the best by their standards, they are still in better form than their counterparts.
They have claimed two victories from their last five league games. By contrast, Polokwane are winless in their last five league games, drawing their last two games and losing the other three.
Polokwane have lost a mammoth 17 games this season and Downs have tasted defeat in just five. Rise and Shine looks destined for relegation as they are on the bottom of the standings and in poor form. However, they will be hopeful that they can avoid the drop as they are three points clear of 14th-placed AmaZulu.
There is perhaps no coach in the PSL right now who has a better big match temperament than that of Mosimane. Though his side struggled at times against title rivals Kaizer Chiefs last week, “Jingles” managerially outclassed his counterpart Ernst Middendorp en route to grinding out a 1-0 win.

Polokwane v Mamelodi Sundowns tips
Our South African Premier Division expert has cast his eye over betting and found some value Polokwane City v Sundowns tips:
Correct score prediction – Sundowns v City
Downs won the reverse fixture 1-0 last December but were made to work hard by Rise and Shine who were resolute in defense. The last five games between the two teams have been fairly evenly matched given that Polokwane won two with Downs winning two and the other ending in a draw. However, Polokwane need points to improve their chances of avoiding the drop and this could make them vulnerable on the counter attack against Masandawana. A 2-0 scoreline is paying $6.29 and offers some great value in the Sundowns v City betting.
Polokwane City v Mamelodi Sundowns prediction 2/9/2020
While there is heavy pressure on both sides to gain a positive result from the game, Sundowns will enter the contest as the firm favourites in the betting. Polokwane City lack the talent of their opponent and don’t have the big-match pedigree or temperament either. We think the Downs can dominate on the counter-attack and they have enough finishing ability up front. Our final Polokwane City v Mamelodi Sundowns prediction? Mamelodi 2-0.
