'Ke dezemba boss' - A South African term that sums up the cheerful mood in the country over the holiday period, and the football action coming up in December is going to live up to the festive cheer.  

The Absa Premiership fixtures and the Telkom Knockout are going to ensure that all South African football lovers are entertained throughout the final month of the year. Here’s a look at the five key matches to look out for in December.

Kaizer Chiefs vs Bloemfontein Celtic

Absa Premiership 

Saturday 7 December SS4 (SA) & SS9 (ROA) Kickoff at 20:15 (CAT)

Chiefs come into this fixture on the back of seven straight wins in the league. In that time, they’ve scored 16 goals with their biggest win in that run being a 4-0 victory over Stellenbosch FC. Celtic, on the other hand, have been grinding out draws in the Absa Premiership and will need to fight hard as they look to stay in the top half of the table.

 

Maritzburg United vs Mamelodi Sundowns

Telkom Knockout Final

Saturday 14 December SS4 (SA) & SS9 (ROA) Kickoff at 18:00 (CAT)

On the day of this year’s Telkom Knockout final, it is going to be a year and six days since David slew Goliath with Baroka lifting the trophy for the first time. This year, the #BlueArmy of Maritzburg United will look to achieve a similar feat and win their first trophy when they take on the #KaboYellow of Mamelodi Sundowns. The tournament has had nine different winners in the last nine seasons. Could that trend continue?

 

Bidvest Wits vs Mamelodi Sundowns

Absa Premiership

Tuesday 17 December SS4 (SA) & SS9 (ROA) Kickoff at 19:30 (CAT)

Two teams in the top four of the Absa Prem go head-to-head in a mouth-watering clash with both teams battling busy schedules with their CAF Champions League and Confederation Cup commitments. Sundowns play Wits three days after their TKO final, while Wits have more room to breathe between fixtures. The match could be significant in deciding who will be best placed to challenge Kaizer Chiefs for the title this season.

 

Bidvest Wits vs Cape Town City

Absa Premiership 

Friday 20 December SS4 Kickoff at 20:00 (CAT)

The entertaining fixtures keep rolling in for South African football fans with the Students going head-to-head against the Citizens at the Bidvest Stadium. The last five league matches between the sides have seen both teams win twice with one stalemate.

 

Orlando Pirates vs Black Leopards

Absa Premiership

Saturday 21 December SS4 (SA) & SS12 (ROA) Kickoff at 15:30 (CAT)

Orlando Pirates have had a mixed bag of results so far this season. For Black Leopards, it’s been a struggle to get favourable results and it seems like they could be involved in a relegation battle. History is on the Buccaneers side for this fixture having won their last six league encounters with Lidoda Duvha.
