AmaZulu will welcome Kaizer Chiefs to King Goodwill Zwelithini Stadium for a matchday 0 fixture in South Africa Premier Soccer League. The last meeting on 17th February 2021 ended in an AmaZulu 2-1 win. Both sides have met twelve times in the most recent seasons. AmaZulu has won 2 matches, and Kaizer Chiefs triumphed in 8. Recent outings average 2.17 goals, while both teams score 33% of the time.
AmaZulu’s last game in the South Africa Premier Soccer League against Baroka at home ended in a 1-0 win. Although Usuthu played less with the ball than their opponent, it was enough to get the result they were hoping for. AmaZulu scored before halftime in the 15th minute.
Kaizer Chiefs’s previous game in the competition versus Marumo Gallants ended in an away 0-0 draw. The whole team didn’t turn up, so in the end the draw was a good result.
Since the start of the season, AmaZulu is more dominant at home. They have one wins out of 3 games on home soil. Usuthu has one of the best defence in the league. They have kept a clean sheet in 100% of their home games.
Kaizer Chiefs has picked up 5 points from the previous five league games. They still have a lot to prove when playing away from home. Kaizer Chiefs wins 0.67 points per away game, a bit less than their home record shows. It is clear that their strikers will have to step up in the following games. Kaizer Chiefs failed to score in 100% of away games this campaign.
It is hard to choose a favourite in this one. Both teams look evenly-matched and have their strengths. I am not willing to take a risk and prefer a double chance bet. My prediction is AmaZulu or Draw.
Still, I expect a close game and don’t think that we will see a lot of goals. Both sides score and concede on average 0.5 goals per game. Over 2.5 goals were scored in an average of 0% of AmaZulu’s home and Kaizer Chiefs’s away games. My prediction is Under 2.5 Goals.
Lately, there are not that many high-scoring games for both sides. I am confident that the tendency will keep going and at least one team will keep a clean sheet. A bet that both sides will score wins in an average of 0% of AmaZulu’s home and Kaizer Chiefs’s away games. My prediction is Both Teams to Score: No.
