Classy Chippa Dash Chiefs' Title Hopes

Absa Premiership 

Result: Kaizer Chiefs 0-3 Chippa United

Date: 07 April 2018

Venue: FNB Stadium

Kaizer Chiefs' slim Absa Premiership title hopes were seemingly ended as the Soweto giants lost 3-0 to Chippa United at the FNB Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
There weren’t any opportunities for both sides in the opening ten minutes, apart from glaring errors at the back by the Chilli Boys which almost gifted Amakhosi the lead but the hosts failed to capitalise.
Steve Komphela was forced to make a change in the 14th minute as Ramahlwe Mphahlele pulled up earlier in the match and was replaced by Bongolethu Jayiya.
In the 25th minute, Thabo Rakhale gave Vladislav Heric’s side the lead after skipping past Erick Mathoho before slotting past the on-rushing Itumeleng Khune with a low shot at the near post, 0-1.
Ryan Moon almost equalised for Amakhosi two minutes before half-time but goalkeeper Daniel Akpeyi made a point-blank save as Chippa went into the break leading.
Steve Komphela made an alteration at the start of the second half as Teenage Hadebe made way for Bernard Parker.
Leonardo Castro had the first shot at goal for Amakhosi in the second stanza but could not find the target with a half-volley from the right side of the box.
Dumisani Zuma was unfortunate not to have found the equaliser for Amakhosi 15 minutes from time with a diving header inside the box that missed narrowly wide following a brilliant cross from Hendrick Ekstein.
Mxolisi Macuphu punished the hosts 12 minutes before time, beating the offside trap before lobbing  Khune, who had committed himself to the ground following a defence-splitting pass from Linda Mntambo, 0-2.
Zuma had another chance three minutes from time for the home side with a sliding shot inside the box but United shot-stopper Akpeyi made a good save.
Former Chiefs striker Edward Manqele rounded off the scoring with a simple finish to make it 3-0 to Chippa.
Here's how they lined up:
Chiefs: 32. Khune, 2. Mphahlele (Jayiya 13'), 22. Zulu, 20. Hadebe, 4. Cardoso, 3. Mathoho, 13. Katsande, 27. Ekstein, 14. Tshabalala, 29. Moon, 8. Castro.
