Chiefs – Even If They Don’t Win The League…

Kaizer Chiefs are enjoying a purple patch of a season in 2019/20 under Ernst Middendorp, and look set to win the Absa Premiership title, but…

Even if Chiefs don’t manage to go on and clinch the title then they’ve already shown a remarkable turnaround in form compared to the 2018/19 season that saw them finish ninth and without a spot in the MTN8 tournament.

Now, with nine games left to play, Amakhosi have already won more games, scored more goals, and earned more points than they did in the entirety of their last campaign, signalling a huge improvement after the disappointments last time out.

On top of that, the 1-0 win over Orlando Pirates at the weekend was their 11th clean sheet this season, beating their tally of 10 clean sheets in 2018/19, showing another area of improvement that Middendorp has overseen over the course of the last year – even more impressive given the fact that Itumeleng Khune has been missing for most of it.

2018/19 (so far) -
Wins: 9
Goals: 33
GD: 4
Points: 39

2019/20 (total) -
Wins: 15
Goals: 40
GD: 16
Points: 48

With the above stats in mind, Chiefs can be exceptionally pleased with their current efforts regardless of what happens between now and May, although anything less than a title win would of course be seen as a failure given how long they have been sitting pretty at the top of the table.

Chiefs currently lead second-placed Mamelodi Sundowns by seven points after 21 games – although Masandawana have a game in hand, while the likes of Pirates, SuperSport United and Maritzburg United are all nine points or more behind.
