Starting XI: Chippa v SuperSport

DStv Premiership

Teams: Chippa United v SuperSport United

Date: 05 June 2021

Venue: Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium

Chippa United will be fighting for their lives when they host SuperSport United in the final round of the DStv Premiership on Saturday afternoon.

The match will kickstart at 15h00.

Chippa missed the chance to go equal on points with 14th-placed Stellenbosch in the penultimate round after they were held to a goalless draw by Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila in midweek, who secured their Premiership status from that result.

The Chilli Boys will have the final chance to avoid going to the play-offs, although that fate is not entirely in their hands, lying 15th on the log with 26 points, just two points behind Stellies and need a win and the Western Cape side to lose against away to Golden Arrows, to survive the relegation play-offs.

In contrast, Matsatsantsa will be playing mostly for pride, as their top eight spot is secure and are not in the running for the CAF Confederation Cup spot either despite getting back to winning ways with a 2-0 win over Maritzburg United on Wednesday.

Kaitano Tembo's charges are lying fifth on the log with 44 points and can only go as high as fourth on the log if they win and fourth-placed Arrows lose against Stellenbosch.

The sides could not be separated in the first round meeting after sharing the spoils in a four-goal thriller in January this year at Lucas Moripe Stadium.

Here's how they line up:

Chippa: 30. Watenga, 44. Nhalpo, 10. Mdlinzo, 2. Konqobe, 18. Mthethwa, 17. Damons, 12. Sangweni, 8. Maloisane, 13. Mokhele, 28. Lebitso, 15. Kwem.

Subs: 16. Mtshali, 27. Peters, 31. Laffor, 38. Msane, 42. Manyisa, 37. Phewa, 5. Lentjies, 21. Dinge, 7. Mbenyane.

SuperSport: 30. Williams, 20. Kekana, 3. Khumalo, 6. Ditlhokwe, 11. Mahachi, 17. Lungu, 26. Donn, 12. Webber, 9. Rayners, 13. Gabuza, 7. Grobler.

Subs: 33. Pule, 25. Fleurs, 14. Bhasera, 15. Mohomi, 23. Waiswa, 38. Moralo, 19. Rusike.
