Kaizer Chiefs will have the opportunity to lift their first league title after a seven season drought when they host SuperSport United at the Peter Mokaba Stadium on Wednesday night in an Absa Premiership match, kick-off at 7:30pm.
Chiefs are currently sitting at the top of the log standings with 56 points from with only two league matches remaining. Amakhosi lead second placed Platinum Stars by three points, with the Naturena based side only needing a point to confirm their status as league champions.
These two teams will also meet for the last match of the PSL season when they face off in the final of the Nedbank Cup. With United having drawn 16 of their 28 league matches so far, Chiefs right-back Siboniso Gaxa says that they will not be tempted to play out a stalemate that will be enough to seal the PSL title.
“I feel that SuperSport deserve the respect like the rest of the teams in the league because we are also going to face them in the final of the Nedbank Cup and winning this match will motivate them heading into the final,” said Gaxa.
“We know that we only need a point to win the league but we have six points remaining and we won’t go for the one point, we will play for the maximum six and win the league in the sort of fashion that league champions do.”
United, on the other hand, are fighting it out for a place in the top four but more importantly they will be avoiding a drop out of the top half of the table. There are only three points separating sixth placed United and tenth placed the University of Pretoria
When these two sides met in the league earlier this season, Lehlohonolo Majoro scored a brace as Chiefs ran out with a 2-1 victory at the very same venue where this second one will be played.
I believe Chiefs will today be crowned PSL champions and my score prediction is 3-1 to the Amakhosi.
