Kaizer Chiefs will be hoping for back-to-back victories in the DStv Premiership when they travel to the Harry Gwala Stadium for their next fixture against Maritzburg United on Sunday evening.
Ernst Middendorp’s side are currently on a two-game winless run in the league after they were forced to share the spoils with Chippa United in their previous game, which saw the game ended goalless at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium on 7 November 2021.
Meanwhile, Stuart Baxter’s men are high in confidence heading into the clash after they claimed a famous 2-1 victory over arch-rivals Orlando Pirates in the first instalment of the Soweto derby at the FNB Stadium on 6 November as Keagan Dolly bagged a brace for Chiefs, while Linda Mntambo’s 87th minute equaliser proved to be a consolation goal.
Amakhosi are in sixth place with 15 points from 10 games after they won four, drawn three and conceded three defeats, while the Team of Choice are three points behind them in 11th place on the log with 11 points after they picked up three wins, two draws and five defeats from 10 matches.
In the last meeting between the two sides, Chiefs and Maritzburg shared the spoils after they played out to a 1-1 draw at the Harry Gala Stadium on Wednesday, 10 March 2021 when Lebogang Manyama cancelled out Thabiso Kutumela’s opening goal.
The two teams will one again tussle at the Harry Gala Stadium in the first meeting between Amakhosi and the Team of Choice in the 2021-22 DStv Premiership campaign, with kick-off scheduled for 5:30pm on Sunday.
