Our football match prediction:
Jeonbuk Motors and Mamelodi Sundowns face each other in the 5th place play-off at the 2016 FIFA Club World Cup in Japan. Despite taking the lead in the game against Club America, the South Korea outfit eventually suffered a 2-1 loss to the Mexican team at Suita City Football Stadium. Mamelodi Sundowns, on the other hand, were beaten by Kashima Antlers in the quarter-finals, but it has to be noted that Pitso Mosimane’s men had 14 shots on goal during the match. Both teams are eager to give fans some cheer after failing to make it to the semis of the tournament and we predict that both sides will go for a win in Wednesday’s football match. Taking everything into account, Jeonbuk Motors and Mamelodi Sundowns, who meet for the first time ever in a competitive match, are both likely to score in the Suita City Football Stadium clash.
Highlighted Team (Mamelodi Sundowns):
Mamelodi Sundowns are an African football club that was founded in the early 1960s. In 1970 Mamelodi Sundowns became an official club and they have won seven African Premier League titles since then. The Bafana baStyle play their home games at Loftus Versfeld Stadium in Pretoria and the capacity of the venue is 51.762. In 2016 the club won the CAF Champions League, with the team beating Zamalek of Egypt in the title game. Mamelodi recorded a 3-0 win over the Egyptian outfit in the first leg, but they were beaten by Moamen Soliman’s team (0-1) in the reverse fixture in Borg El Arab. As a result, the Bafana BaStyle booked their place at the 2016 FIFA Club World Cup in Japan. Nonetheless, they failed to record a good result at the showpiece tournament as they were beaten by Kashima Antlers in the play-offs. It has to be noted that Bulgarian football star Hristo Stoichkov was in charge of the club from July 1, 2009 to March 17, 2010.
