The Clever boys take on the Absa Premiership log leaders Amakhosi at the Orlando stadium tonight. It will be Chiefs’ first game since the lifting of coronavirus match ban while it will be Bidvest’s second game at the Nedbank quarter-final last weekend.
This is another important match between two competitive teams, Chiefs’ league title dream remains under threat as they do need to maintain the top position while Mamelodi Sundowns is slowly closing in.
The Clever Boys could also rise to the 4th position if they secure a win at tonight’s game. We have seen a determined spirit and resilience in Gavin hunt’s men in their previous match with Sundowns.
“We have Akpeyi on the starting line up, the challenge right there is at the back, Sasman and Ngezana. It is a difficult one from the coach to select these back lines, the chemistry between Cardoso and Ngezana is also questionable. Wits are also not strong in the mid-field, They are likely to use the same strategy that was played against Sundowns knowing Amakhosi is also a tough team. The clever boys will take advantage of Maluleka’s absence in the squad and also having played previously over the weekend. I see a 1-1 draw between the two teams,” said Aubrey Mashinini.
Looking into the previous clashes between the Soweto giants and the students, The Glamour Boys have dominated this fixture before with 19 wins, six draws and 10 losses in their last 35 matches against the Students.
