Kaizer Chiefs hosted the MTN8 runner up Bloemfontein Celtics at FNB Stadium on Saturday evening.
Chiefs, in the similar fashion as per their previous two games, against Black Leopards and Supersport United, respectively, have started like a house on fire with opponents hardly keeping up, although Chiefs conceded goals in the first half of these games, Chiefs has a lion’s share on ball possession and match control.
Looking at all the 3 games, Chiefs seem to lose the spark when they get back from half time, some analyst speculate that it could be that players-coach discussion that take place during half time or it could be that the opponents coaches easily spot the Chiefs strength and manage them well in the second half.
Celtic controlled the entire second half of today’s game after Chiefs controlled the first half.
In the second how Glamour Boys could hardly string 3 passes, most of the balls were easily intercepted by Celtic players.
Daniel Akpeyi came in Itumelng Khune’s place and Akpeyi did a good job to save Chiefs from few Celtic shots.
Chiefs have only won one game since the opening of the new league, drew four and lost three.
Chiefs and Celtic have played their final PSL game for 2020, and both will open their 2021 calendar with Ernst Middendorp’s Maritzburg United in January on different days.
