“GU will win the match although it would not be an easy game. The team has been winning games consecutively and I don’t think that Jwaneng Galaxy will disturb their momentum. The past glory days are surely back at Moyagoleele.”
“I predict that GU will bag this cup. The team is currently strong and playing good football. Jwaneng Galaxy is not that strong as compared to GU. It would be difficult for the diamond mining town team to defeat GU now,” he said.

“Although I am a Township Rollers supporter, I place my bet on GU to lift the Mascom Top 8 Final trophy. GU is currently on top form, which put it in good stead to win against Galaxy. GU will win the game 2-1 on Saturday,” Mokgethi said.
“GU’s coach Phillimon Makwengwe has a bag full of tricks that he will unleash against his opponents on Saturday. Makwengwe is a very good analyser of the game.

On their day, these two players are deadly. GU would also be overwhelmed by Galaxy because their defence has a tendency to unnecessarily panic.”
