All eyes are on the DStv Premiership Week 3 standout fixture between Mamelodi Sundowns and Kaizer Chiefs on Saturday. Here are three things to expect.
First and foremost, this is one of the biggest games on the African continent as a whole.
The Brazilians have earned much respect in Africa over the years for their consistent appearances and performances in the CAF Champions League.
Meanwhile, the Phefeni Glamour Boys are well-known for their huge following not only in South Africa but outside Mzansi’s boarders as well.
Three things to expect in this fixture:
1. NO GOALLESS DRAW
The two teams have played 11 games without a goalless draw, meaning they don’t sit back when playing each other.
The last five fixtures have produced 14 goals between the sides.
2. SUNDOWNS AND BACK TO BACK DEFEATS
The last time Masandawana lost back-to-back league games was in January 2018 to Cape Town City and Polokwane City as per OptaJabu.
Besides, they’re champions and they have to play like ones.
3. CHIEFS TO PROVE A POINT
For a long time now, Amakhosi have been considered underdogs when they come up against Mamelodi Sundowns considering the dominance of the Pretoria side in recent years.
But many changes have taken place in Naturena within Arthur Zwane’s era and another change might be to stop kneeling down before Sundowns.
Kick-off is scheduled for 15:00.
