Kaizer Chiefs have bagged another PSL accolade, and this has been confirmed by the League.
Following an impressive run of form by Amakhosi under German coach Ernst Middendorp, the Soweto giants have been confirmed as winners of the Q2 of this season's Q-Innovation.
“Current Absa Premiership log leaders, Kaizer Chiefs have claimed the second quarter of the 2019/20 Absa Premiership Q-Innovation,” the PSL confirmed in a statement.
This is the second Q-Innovation win for Amakhosi this season, with the club having also won the Q1 in December.
“This is second successive Q-Innovation victory for Kaizer Chiefs in the 2019/20 season. Kaizer Chiefs won Quarter Two with 16 points from seven fixtures. Going to the previous weekend, Bidvest Wits were the only side that stood a realistic chance of upsetting Kaizer Chiefs’ party but their 0-2 loss to Cape Town City on Saturday night ended their Q2 aspirations and paved a way for Kaizer Chiefs to claim top prize,” read the PSL’s statement.
“Before this season kicked-off in August 2019, Kaizer Chiefs had not won a Quarter since 2014/15 season – which happened to be the last time Amakhosi claimed the Absa Premiership title. Each side that wins a Quarter gets R1, 5 million in prize money. Quarter One (8 Fixtures), Quarter Two (7 Fixtures), Quarter Three (8 Fixtures), Quarter Four (7 Fixtures). The PSL congratulates Kaizer Chiefs for winning the Quarter,” the PSL adds.
Meanwhile, Mamelodi Sundowns finished in second place to Chiefs in Q2.
“Mamelodi Sundowns finished second on the Absa Premiership Quarter Two log standings with 14 points from seven fixtures. Bidvest Wits, who came in third, also had 14 points – but scored fewer goals than Mamelodi Sundowns. Chippa United, who have been rebirthed under Zimbabwean coach Norman Mapeza were fourth with 13 points,” the league’s statement concludes.
