The curtain may be slowly closing on the current Premier Soccer League season, but clubs will already have one eye on the next campaign.
So too will the players and with individual honours to play for, we can expect some rivalry between opposition players. Here are some potential one-on-one battles that we could expect to see next season between Kaizer Chiefs, Mamelodi Sundowns and Orlando Pirates.
Khama Billiat vs Mandla Masango
Both speedy wingers, Billiat and Masango can be regarded as two of the quickest players in the PSL. Not only that, but they are also their most creative minds on the flanks. A battle to better one another may be on the cards next season.
Thabo Rakhale vs George Lebese
Jomo and Lebese are the skilful crowd pleasers in their respective teams. They are all about that deft touch as well as the known ‘Kasi flavour’. Let’s hope to see a healthy battle develop between the two showmen.
Thabo Qalinge vs Keagan Dolly
With Dolly having signed for Sundowns, it remains to be seen what impact he will have at an already star-studded Downs outfit. Qalinge is yet to impress the Pirates technical staff and with both players being flying wingers, they could be in a similar position next season with regards to fighting for a place in the team.
These could be three interesting attacking battles for Amakhosi, Bucs and Downs, who will come out on top?
