On Saturday evening, South Africa will come to a halt as Kaizer Chiefs host rivals Mamelodi Sundowns at the FNB Stadium.
On a current 11-game winning streak, the Brazilians are well positioned to defend their DStv Premiership crown.
Kaizer Chiefs, on the other hand, are winless in 2023 and trail their opponents by 19 points in the rankings.
Six of the last eight encounters between Mamelodi Sundowns and Chiefs have resulted in a Mamelodi Sundowns victory!
Khune, Frosler, Dove, Kwinika, Hlanti, Zwane, Maart, Nkosingiphile Ngcobo, Dolly, Du Preez, and Bimenyimana comprise the Kaizer Chiefs XI.
Subs: Petersen, Ngezana, Sithebe, Matlou, Mashiane, Solomons, Shabalala, Duba, Sekgota
The match will also be broadcast on SuperSport PSL, while DStv Now will provide live streaming coverage.
This weekend, Amakhosi defender Sifiso Hlanti returns from suspension against rivals Mamelodi Sundowns.
The Bafana Bafana defender has heaped praise on the fantastic form of the Brazilians.
Before moving on, we must give credit to Sundowns because they have played 10 games without a loss, which is a positive development. The Kaizer Chiefs defender was quoted by KickOff as saying.
“But we are prepared for this since we are fully aware of their capabilities.
“As players, we are not putting pressure on ourselves, but the task at hand requires mental toughness, which is something we are working on in training.”
“Because we are a unified squad, we are well-prepared. I will not argue that it is a grudge match since every game we play is competitive, especially if you play for Kaizer Chiefs.
Therefore, it is a problem that requires our unity as players. It will not be simple since we must respect the game of football and exert maximum effort.”
