DStv Premiership 2022-23 predictions: season preview
Mamelodi Sundowns won the 2022-22 South African Premier Division title as they secured their fifth championship in a row. The 2022-23 Premier Soccer League will be contested among 16 teams, and the one with the most points at the end of the season is getting the crown. Premier Division teams that finish in the top 2 automatically qualify for the CAF Champions League. The third-placed team and the champions of the Nedbank Cup qualify for the CAF Confederation Cup. If the winner of the Nedbank Cup finishes in the top 3, the runners-up qualify for the other spot of the CAF Confederation Cup.
The team that finishes bottom of the table is automatically relegated to the National First Division. The last relegation spot is decided in the mini-league play-offs. The 15th team of the DStv Premiership competes with the second and the third of the National First Division.
Mamelodi Sundowns are still the strongest in the league and are looking to win their fifthsixth title in a row. However, the 2022-23 season may be one of the most competitive in years. Takebet Ghana offers outright predictions of the DStv Premiership winner and the top 3 as well as South African Premier Division betting tips on all top matches in the course of a season.

How experts analyse DStv Premiership games for sure predictions
The experts of Takebet Ghana make objective predictions based on our experience in following and analysing the South African Premier League as well as on statistical data and facts.
South African teams combine contrasting styles of play into their own unique style.
Let’s take the champions of the 2020-21 DStv Premiership, Mamelodi Sundowns, as an example. They are nicknamed “the Brazilians” for a reason. The Sundowns play with flair and passion, combining the Italian and the Spanish styles, and that happens to be quite entertaining. Mamelodi Sundowns are also called “Shoe Shine and Piano” as they use quick short passes to find pockets of space which is linked to the famous Tiki-taka style of play.
Teams such as SuperSport United and Orlando Pirates love to widen the pitch. The Pirates are up for playing high-intensity football as they use high pressing to win the ball back in the attacking third. Other teams sometimes love to sit back and hit their rivals on the counter.
This is the kind of knowledge we turn to when analysing matchups for DStv Premiership tips.
And here are some stats our experts use for South African Premier Soccer League tips:
- Goals scored and conceded
- Big chances created and conceded

- Shots on/off-target
