Teams: AmaZulu v Black Leopards
Date: 04 November 2020
Venue: Jonsson Kings Park
AmaZulu and Black Leopards will both be gunning for their first victory in the DStv Premiership at Jonsson Kings Park Stadium this evening.
Usuthu had a promising start to the season after holding Orlando Pirates to a 1-1 draw in their opener. However, their performance levels as they lost 1-0 to newcomers TS Galaxy on the road at Mbombela Stadium last Wednesday.
Meanwhile, Lidoda Duvha, who survived the chop by winning the promotion/relegation play-offs, are yet to register a point on the table after losing back-to-back matches.
New coach Patrick Aussems was not on the bench when Leopards lost their opener 2-0 to SuperSport United as he was still awaiting his work permit but the Belgian was present on the touchline when they lost 3-1 to Baroka FC in the Limpopo derby last Tuesday.
Usuthu edged Leopards 1-0 recently in the bio-bubble last term and got away with four points from their two meetings after the first round clash ended in a goalless draw.
