Find out who our in-house tipster is backing at this year’s KwaZulu-Natal Premiers Cup.
AmaZulu have been given a bye to the semi-finals, whilst defending champions, Royal Eagles, will be looking to make history by winning three in a row after successfully defending the title last season.
Real Kings 14/10
Uthongathi FC 2/1
The Cane Cutters began their pre-season preparations in June and they will be looking to build on the Ndwedwe Mayrol Cup win when they beat PSL outfit AmaZulu FC. This is a tough game to call, but back Real Kings at 14/10.
Royal Eagles 17/10
Royal Eagles were disappointing last campaign, a lot was expected from them after they had signed experienced players like Katlego Mphela, Phumelele Bhengu, Masibusane Zongo and Philani Zikalala. The star-studded side finished the season at a disappointing ninth position on the standings. Roger Sikhakhane was appointed towards the end of the season and he will look to do what he did twice with Chippa United, promoting them to the PSL. Back Sikhakhane and his star-studded side to triumph here at 17/10.
Golden Arrows 2/1
Golden Arrows will play in the MTN8 again this season, where they will look to emulate the class of 2009 that won the trophy beating Ajax 6-0 in the final. These sides have shared the spoils in each of their last two meetings, whilst Maritzburg have not beaten Arrows since 2016. I’ll go against the stats here and back Maritzburg to win at 14/10.
