'I Can’t See Chiefs Beating Chippa'

Kaizer Chiefs could struggle to beat Chippa United in their Nedbank Cup semi-final match this coming weekend, according to former midfielder Junior Khanye.

Chiefs will visit Chippa at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium for their eagerly-awaited semi-final clash on Saturday.

Amakhosi beat Cape Town City 2-0 in the quarter-finals of the prestigious competition, while the Chilli Boys advanced through by defeating Bidvest Wits 5-3 on penalties in the previous round. 

With Chippa having also eliminated Mamelodi Sundowns, as well as NFD side Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila earlier in the competition, the Port Elizabeth-based outfit could cause yet another upset against Chiefs, according to Khanye.

“Kaizer Chiefs are still not on top of their game. Against Cape Town City in the previous round, it was individual performances of certain players that helped them to go through. Cape Town City matched them pound for pound, but luck was on Chiefs’ side and that helped them. I didn’t see Chiefs winning that match until it happened, because, for me, they didn’t deserve that win. Cape Town City didn’t take their chances and that cost them the match,” said Khanye.

Prior to defeating the Citizens, Chiefs beat ABC Motsepe League teams Tornado FC and The Magic in the earlier rounds of the competition.

“I can’t see Chiefs beating Chippa United in their upcoming match. They didn’t win convincingly against Cape Town City. I expect Chippa to cause a major upset. Chiefs are very defensive and that is what is costing the team in my opinion,” added the ex-youth international.
