Mamelodi vs Ajax Cape Town by Dajkula

In round 5 of the PSL Mamelodi welcome Ajax Cape Town. Mamelodi has been underperforming so far with only 4 points from 4 matches. The score is 1-1-2 and 5:5 goal difference. For a runner up and the title holder from 2 seasons back it is a lousy start. The team is star studded and for sure should finish top 3 who ever is in charge. Ajax was a leader before this round but as they have a game less they can jump to first again. It is an unlikely position for Ajax and even the players have quality as a team they always lack something. They are a team that produces players so they have to rebuild every season which of course makes it hard to compete with the big teams that have money.


But Ajax has shown that they might be a contender for something this year. They have 9 points from 4 matches played and 3-0-1 score. Truth is that they played 3 matches at home while have lost the only one vs Wits 2:1 away. Still a win over Chiefs in the 8 Cup finale last saturday shows that the team is in form.


Mamelodi has played just one match at home and 3 away. But again such a team should not lose points against Black Aces, Golden Arrows and Platinum Stars. The only home win came against strong Bidwest Wits 4:2 which again is a very good result but the only one so far.


When Mamelodi hosts Ajax we can see goals. It is a strange thing for this league but all of the last 8 meetings here ended over 2 goals scored and even 6 of those 8 games ended over 3 goals scored. It is a totally different result when Ajax is the host.


There are some missing though that might not favour the over today. Mamelodi is without Bongani Zungu(att.4-0) while Khama Billiat (att.4-1), Anthony Laffor(att.3-0) and Thabo Nthethe (def.3-0) are doubtful. Ajax misses the suspended Coetzee(def.3-0).


I can see at least 3 goals scored today.
