Will Chiefs Exploit Shaky AmaZulu Defence?

Cavin Johnson and his technical team will have to come up with a better defensive plan against Kaizer Chiefs if they are to have any chance of winning the game and taking the three points. 

AmaZulu will host Chiefs in a league game at the King Zwelithini Stadium tonight and while Usuthu have been one of the top scoring teams in the league this season, they have also been conceding goals at an alarming rate.

AmaZulu's defence has let them down this season as they scored 12 goals but conceded a whopping 13 and now sit with a minus one goal difference going into the game against Chiefs.

There are only two games where AmaZulu did not concede this season – against Free State Stars in the first game of the campaign (AmaZulu won 1-0), and against Bidvest Wits (AmaZulu won 3-0).

AmaZulu have conceded the second highest number of goals in the PSL this season behind Polokwane City. Usuthu are tied with Bidvest Wits with 13 goals conceded. They will need to be cautious against the likes of Siphiwe Tshabalala and Gustavo Paez who can be clinical in front of goal when a chance to score go their way. Of the 83 shots conceded by the KZN outfit this season, 25 have been on target for the opponents. Usuthu are conceding 3.6 shots on target per match.
