Bloemfontein Celtic v Mamelodi Sundowns, Nedbank Cup Final Betting Preview & Prediction

The curtain finally falls on the South African soccer season on Saturday when the recently crowned PSL Champions, Mamelodi Sundowns take on Bloemfontein Celtic.

Celtic were too strong for Baroka in the semi-final winning 3-0, but prior to that they required penalties to beat lower league, TS Sporting.  In the earlier round they saw off Maritzburg United 3-2 and had few problems in disposing of AmaZulu 4-1.

Sundowns beat Wits 3-2 in a thrilling semi-final and they were also given a hard time in their quarter-final just edging Highlands 1-0 in extra time. Prior to that they had beaten the Vaal University of Technology 2-0 and SuperSport United 1-0.

Celtic were undefeated in the League since returning from the COVID-19 break with 5 draws and 2 victories including a 3-1 win over Maritzburg United in their last League game.

Sundowns came from well back to pip Kaizer Chiefs for the Title win, winning 4 of their last 5 games, the last 2 by 3-0 margins against Polokwane and Black Leopards.

These sides met twice in the League with Sundowns winning 2-1 on both occasions.

Bloemfontein Celtic 3/1

Draw 26/10

Mamelodi Sundowns 17/20

Suggested Bet:  Over 2.5 goals at 21/20

These sides have a history of goals between them and both of these sides are playing very well at the moment and scoring freely by South African standards. I am expecting an exciting end to the season with 3 goals or more the result.
