Pitso Mosimane and Ernst Middendorp have been in a war of words, and the stats suggest that tomorrow’s clash could be full of drama as Mamelodi Sundowns host Kaizer Chiefs.
Check out seven big stats ahead of tomorrow’s encounter in the gallery above!
Two of South Africa’s ‘Big Three’ lock horns tomorrow afternoon as they battle it out for top spot on the Absa Premiership table, and it’s a game that’s full of intrigue given the back and forth that’s been going on between the two coaches.
Chiefs got the upper hand over the Brazilians earlier in the month – albeit in a friendly game – when they put four past them in a 4-2 victory in the Shell Helix Ultra Cup, but they don’t have the best of records against Masandawana, winning just two of their last eight meetings in all competitions.
Mosimane has an impressive record over Middendorp over the course of their careers, and the German will be eager to change that on Sunday given the opportunity that has presented itself following Chiefs’ impressive start to their 2019/20 campaign.
Sundowns host the Glamour Boys at 15h00 tomorrow night, with the winner set to finish the weekend sitting pretty on top of the table.
