IT’S A GAME everyone would cherish to live and see as both Kaizer Chiefs and Mamelodi Sundowns are on their winning streak.
They clash on Saturday (January 27) evening at FNB Stadium for the PSL encounter, and as the saying goes ‘let the best man win’ its gonna be epic!
AmaKhosi-the host- face this game having won their latest matches -serving as a confidence booster.
In their last outing in the first season, Chiefs beat Downs 1-0 at Loftus Stadium and would like to hang on that mentality.
Perched third on the log, Chiefs would want anything but a win to better their chances of competing for the league honours.
Yes, the team has made significant changes in the squad and the signings prove to be a quality ‘gamble’. The combination of Siphelele “Champagne Pass” Ntshangase and former Downs’ striker Leonardo Castro will prove hard to contain, should coach Steve Kompela stick to the same formation used against Baroka last weekend.
Current log leaders with 34 points, Downs’ would want to get that monkey off their back with a sweet revenge.
Khama Billiat whose future still remains uncertain at the Chloorkop side showed, letting him go will be suicidal following a resounding performance against lowly and relegation bound Platinum Stars last weekend.
Komphela’s counterpart coach Pitso “Jingles” Mosimane has been quoted that the game should produce more goals- a fact that was given high fives by the fans alike.
Whoever, comes out victorious would have wo
rked hundred times harder to manipulate the opponent.
Stadium Management SA –operators of FNB stadium- has called on fans to come early in big numbers and avoid unnecessary traffic.
Tickets are still available at Computicket outlets.
Kick off 20h00.
