Teams: SuperSport United v Kaizer Chiefs
Date: 15 March 2019
Venue: Mbombela Stadium
SuperSport United and Kaizer Chiefs will be fighting to keep their slim title chances alive in the Absa Premiership when they clash at Mbombela Stadium.
Amakhosi can’t afford to lose any more games if they are to have any chance of upstaging the chasing pack in the final stretch of the season.
Ernst Middendorp’s charges are unbeaten in their last four league matches, which includes back-to-back wins over Highlands Park and Maritzburg United.
The Soweto giants find themselves in seventh position on the table, eight points behind log leaders Mamelodi Sundowns both with seven matches left to play.
On the other hand, Kaitano Tembo’s troops have won four of their last five league matches, the last of which was a 1-0 victory over Free State Stars last Sunday.
SuperSport are placed fifth on the table, just five points behind Sundowns, who are not involved in domestic action this weekend.
In the first round league meeting between the sides, Amakhosi beat Matsatsantsa 1-0 thanks to an impressive strike from George Maluleka.
