The General Teko Modise is back to give us his insights into the MTN8 Final!
“Orlando Pirates are the favourites to win the MTN8 with odds of 2.03 on them to win. Neither them nor Bloemfontein Celtic (4.01) have won a trophy in over five years.
“Orlando Pirates are still struggling to score goals. They are creating a lot of chances, but not finding the back of the net. They also particularly struggle against ball-playing teams and that’s exactly what the underdogs Bloem Celtics are – a ball playing team.
“Celtics have everything to gain and nothing to lose and while they aren’t doing well in the PSL they have had a fantastic run in the cups. This is their second cup final in two months and they will be feeling this is the one for them to win.
“I think this is going to be a very tricky game for Orlando Pirates. I’ve seen in the way they played against Cape Town City where they were not convincing and they might not be as confident as they could be heading into the final.
“Bloemfontein Celtic will be very, very confident and they will be playing without fear. This makes them a very dangerous opponent.
“That said, I still think Orlando Pirates will win the MTN8 this weekend. I just give them the narrow win based on their experience, but expect an exciting game.”
