Chiefs v Sundowns In Numbers

Absa Premiership: Kaizer Chiefs vs. Mamelodi Sundowns

Date: 5 April 2014

Time: 20h15

Venue: FNB Stadium

League leaders Kaizer Chiefs host second-placed Mamelodi Sundowns in a vital PSL match on Saturday night, with just three points separating the two teams on the log.

If the Brazilians are to stay in the race, an away win would be a major boon, but a victory for Chiefs, who have a game in hand, would be a major step to them making a defence of their title.
