The Key Difference Between Chiefs & Pirates This Season

Chiefs & Pirates' Different Performances In Each Half

By Soccer Laduma - Sep 30, 2017 12:36 PM

There has been one key difference between Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates this season and it undoubtedly gives us a frame of reference when looking at how they achieved their respective results this season.

Khune Cleared By Hospital: “He Fell Heavily On His Head”

The time at which goals are scored in a game is often a great indicator of the team's fatigue or a coach’s tactical prowess and, in this respect, Chiefs and Pirates have yielded far different results in the six games played so far this season.

In the Buccaneer’s respective games this season, they have scored four goals, with three of those goals coming in the first half, with one of them being scored in the first 15 minutes of the first half and two in minutes 30 to 45. However, they have managed to score only one in the second half of their games this season, with Thabo Qalinge’s winner in the 1-0 victory over Cape Town City coming in the 82nd minute.

Chiefs, on the other hand, have been able to score four goals, out of seven in the second half, meaning that the other three were scored in the first half. However, they have been less fortunate with their results compared to Pirates, having conceded two in the second half and two in the first, compared to Pirates record of conceding just twice overall, one in the first half and another in the second.

The difference between the two is a clear reflection of both Milutin Sredojevic’s and Steve Komphela’s tactical approaches, with the Serbian clearly identifying the importance of scoring early, while Komphela’s changes made at half-time clearly reaping rewards.

Who do you think has taken the better tactical approach this season? Komphela or Sredojevic?

Micho tactically his more superior to Khompela, let alone lacking aggression of his strikers. Pressure on Khompela it doesn't do him any good and not good for his team progress as well.
