Mamelodi Sundowns v Kaizer Chiefs – Sunday 4th December – Loftus Stadium

Mamelodi Sundowns v Kaizer Chiefs

PSL football will return to the weekend after the Telkom Knockout semi-finals took centre stage last weekend. The biggest match of the weekend see’s two giants clash in Mamelodi Sundowns and Kaizer Chiefs. Both sides find themselves in good positions on the log with Sundowns sitting 2nd and Chiefs 3rd at the time of writing this article.

Sundowns’ last match (before their midweek encounter yet to be played at the the time of writing the article) was a 1-0 win against Maritzburg United which made them leap from 4th place on the log to 2nd and close the gap on league leaders SuperSport United to just 3 points and go 1 point above their opponents. A strike from Elias Pelembe was the only difference between the sides and that was the Mozambican’s 6th goal of the season. The winger will be hoping to continue his great form in this big match and is a player capable of tearing apart any PSL defence. Teko Modise is another player who will want to perform against his old foes. The midfielder is playing regularly and getting back to the form he was once at with Pirates when he was one of the best midfielders in the league. The league break served Sundowns well as two key players, Clayton Daniels and Lebogang Mokoena, both recovered from their respective injuries and are expected to start this match. The Brazilians are on a good run of going unbeaten in 6 matches having lost just 1 match this season. The Sundowns players, including the league’s top scorer Katlego Mphela, need to start putting away their chances after already drawing 4 matches this season because of wasting clear cut goal scoring opportunities.

It will prove a crucial week for Kaizer Chiefs who will have to face two top teams in the league. Their title ambitions will be tested with a match against top of the table SuperSport United on Wednesday before travelling to Loftus to face Sundowns. Chiefs have been playing well but are coming off two goalless draws with Maritzburg United and Santos. They will need to improve in front of goal and will need the likes of Bernard Parker and Lehlehonolo Majoro to start scoring. Besides missing Keeper Itumeleng Khune, Kaizer Chiefs are at full strength and Coach Vladimir Vermezovic will need to improve on his team’s tactics of creating goal scoring opportunities for their capable strikers. Arthur Bartman will again replace the Chiefs skipper in goal.

This match rarely ends in a draw and an end to end match is expected. Sundowns have been strong at home this season however Kaizer Chiefs are tipped to rise to the occasion and earn the valuable 3 points.
