The Wasps are in terrific form at the moment, and they had secured their league title in phenomenal style the last season. Not only did they have a lead of 17 points over the second-placed team, but they also had scored 20 more goals than any other squad in the whole competition.
Going on, they had also conceded a total of nine goals all through their campaign, and keep note that none of the other teams had even managed to keep it below 20. In fact, they had a goal difference of +51 by the time the season came to an end, while the next best was just +13.
Meanwhile, their counterparts are rusty as they have not played a single official game since March, and they also are on a two-match losing run at the moment. Moreover, they also have been having troubles on the road for quite some time as well.
For the reasons, expect FC Sheriff to easily win this fixture.
