Soweto Derby: Kaizer Chiefs vs Orlando Pirates
Kaizer Chiefs will face Orlando pirates today at 15:30 in what will be the last Soweto Derby of this season.
Kaizer Chiefs German coach Ernst Middendorp who as never lost a game at the Soweto Derby is confident in his team chances today even though Orlando Pirates are undefeated in their last 6 PSL games.
With no injuries or suspensions to report of, Middendorp decided to keep his strategy for the game to himself as he went on to say:
“The spirit in the camp is high… We have gone through the training sessions very well. I am satisfied with our preparations. The game is hyped up just like any other Derby match in the world. You can see with the media and the supporters that this match means a lot to people, and we are aware of that.”
“It is going to be a tight match, I cannot reveal much about the approach. Also, we have done our intelligence work, but we will play cards close to our chest. What everybody has seen is their work rate and ability to grind for results.”
Even though Amakhosi are at the top of the PSL table, the Buccaneers result string of results has put them as the betting mans favourites in today’s match.
The match starts at 15:30 today at FNB Stadium
Supersport United vs Bidvest Wits
Supersport United, who are currently 5th on the PSL log take on Bidvest Wits at 20:15 today at Lucas Moripe Stadium.
Although Bidvest Wits are currently in 6th position with 34 points but have only played 18 games this season so they still have a chance of making their way up the table.
Supersport United have gone undefeated against Bidvest Wits in their last 4 head to head encounters.
Although having lost their last three football matches in all competitions, Supersport are the bookies’ favourites today given their head to head history with Bidvest Wits.
Lamontville Golden Arrows vs Highlands Park
Lamontville Golder Arrows take on Highlands Park at Princess Magogo Stadium at 15:30 today.
Although Golden Arrows are sitting on 8thplace tied with Highlands Park who are just above on 7th position, Golden Arrows do still have a game in hand against their opponents.
These teams have both won 2 out of their previous 4 encounters. The odds in today’s match up seem to be in Golden Arrows favour or a draw.
Chippa United vs AmaZulu
Chippa United take the PSL bottom sitting team, AmaZulu at Nelson Bay Stadium today at 18:00.
Both teams have only won 1 of their previous 5 matches across all competitions with Chippa United winning the previous 2 head to head clashes between the two sides.
As a result of this Chippa United are set to be today’s favourites.
That said AmaZulu as they will be fighting all out for a win that would see them catapult in front of Chippa United, comfortably into 12th position
