SuperSport United vs Mamelodi Sundowns Prediction

Mamelodi are on a positive run of form and come into the game as favourites to leave with all three points.

Despite this game being a derby, SuperSports have a poor record against Sundowns, having failed to win their last seven games. The visitors should claim a comfortable victory.

Prediction: SuperSport United 0-2 Mamelodi Sundowns
