SuperSport United are hardly the opponents Kaizer Chiefs would elect to face as they look to avoid three defeats in a row.
Gavin Hunt’s men find themselves down in ninth place after their defeat at the hands of Benni McCarthy’s Amazulu last time out. Before that, they were humbled and indeed knocked out of the Nedbank Cup by Richard’s Bay.
Heading into this contest, SuperSport are second and looking more and more like the only serious threat to Mamelodi Sundowns’ local dominance.
In all, Chiefs have earned just seven points from eight home matches this season. The statistics added onto this don’t help their cause much either … SuperSport and Chiefs have met 60 times in the league with Matsatsantsa winning 22 and Chiefs 20.
Their last encounter – December 2020 – ended 2-1 in favour of SuperSport thanks to Bradley Grobler and Sipho Mbule.
The name Grobler should be a warning sign for Chiefs’ woeful defensive unit … . he has seven goals in the last eight clashes with Amakhosi.
If the safe bet last time around was on Chiefs to beat Amazulu (and we known they didn’t), then this time around it must be betting on SuperSport to heap even more misery on Hunt and his underperforming wealth of stars.
Suggested bet: SuperSport United to win at 2.60
