Chiefs' Defensive & Scoring Troubles In The Past Eight Years

Kaizer Chiefs suffered a defeat in their opening league fixture last Tuesday evening, and there are fears they may endure another troubled campaign. But just how badly have they deteriorated in front of goal and at the back? Let's take a look!

Steve Komphela's side has won just one fixture in 14 competitive matches, and last year, they finished the campaign in a disappointing fifth place.

What was hugely evident in last season's troubles was the club's defensive weakness and their frailty up front when it came to scoring goals.

The Glamour Boys found the back of the net just 38 times during the 2015/16 campaign – the third lowest number of goals they have scored in the past eight seasons.

Only the 2011/12 and 2008/09 campaigns saw Chiefs score fewer goals, with 35 and 37 strikes being converted respectively.

Meanwhile, in the backline, Chiefs let slip a massive 30 goals last term. Only two more were conceded in the 2008/09 campaign, while no more than 25 goals had been let in since the 2009/10 season. 

Here is a breakdown of Chiefs' defensive & offensive record in the past eight seasons:
