Kaizer Chiefs will renew their rivalry with SuperSport United when the two sides go head-to-head in their next DStv Premiership clash at the Lucas Moripe Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
Kaitano Tembo’s men head into this clash on a seven game unbeaten run in the DStv Premiership after Ghampani Lungu bagged a brace to inspire Matsatsantsa to a 2-0 victory over Baroka last weekend.
Meanwhile, Stuart Baxter’s side are looking for back-to-back wins in the league following their commanding 4-0 win over Chippa United at the FNB Stadium over the weekend as Keagan Dolly netted a first half brace before Khama Billiat and Lazarous Kambole found the net in the second half.
Matsatsantsa currently sit in second place and one point behind log leaders Mamelodi Sundowns after winning four games and drawing three, while the Soweto giants occupy eighth place on the table with nine points from their first seven matches.
In the last meeting between the two teams, SuperSport and Chiefs were forced to settle for a point apiece after they played out to a 1-1 draw at the FNB Stadium on Saturday, 20 February 2021 when Bradley Grobler second half equaliser cancelled out Reeve Frosler’s first half opener.
SuperSport United: Thamsanqa Gabuza
Gabuza has played a crucial role in the team’s success so far this campaign and has helped the club to claim 15 points by scoring three goals in seven games. The 34-year-old will be determined to add to his goal tally against a side he once called rivals during his time at Orlando Pirates.
Kaizer Chiefs: Keagan Dolly
The 28-year-old will be gunning to end SuperSport’s unbeaten run and will be high in confidence after bagging a brace in his previous appearance for Amakhosi.
