How Kaizer Chiefs might start against Mamelodi Sundowns

Kaizer Chiefs have plenty riding on their match against PSL champions Mamelodi Sundowns on Sunday.

Arthur Zwane has been charged with getting something out of this campaign for Amakhosi and has a few ways he could do that.

Here we look at how Kaizer Chiefs might line up in their match against Mamelodi Sundowns.

Kaizer Chiefs starting XI prediction

Having kept a clean sheet last time out we would expect Bruce Bvuma to be retained in goal despite the apparent promotion of Brandon Petersen to No 1.

At left back Reeve Frosler is the man in possession of the shirt and there is no reason to think he will be dispossessed of it.

The days of consideringNjabulo Blom a makeshift right back appear to be past as he consistently shows himself to be Kaizer Chiefs best option in the position.

As a centre back pairing Siyabonga Ngezana and Ramahlwe Mphahlele are considerably more mobile than Amakhosi’s other options.

Tantrums aside we expect to seeNjabulo Ngcobo return to anchor the Kaizer Chiefs midfield.

Zwane could then renew the partnership between Cole Alexander and Phathutshedzo Nange and look to the fullbacks for width.

The pace and creativity of Keagan Dolly and Khama Billiat will be required up front but against Sundowns its likely that they will play either side of target man Leonardo Castro.

Kaizer Chiefs will also get utility from Castro when it comes to defending the setpiece.
