kchiefs150Platinum Stars host Kaizer Chiefs in the Absa Premiership on Saturday and Chiefs are under pressure after a run of five league games without a win

 

 

Platinum Stars:

Platinum Stars won 1-0 away at Polokwane in midweek and after spending much of the first half of the season at the bottom of the log, they are now fourteenth, 2 points clear of the bottom 2.

Stars are unbeaten in their last 6 league outings, a run which comprises of 2 wins and 4 draws

6 home games have delivered 1 win, 2 draws and 3 defeats and goals have been scarce with just 1 scored and 4 conceded

Only 2 of 13 league games have gone over 2.5 goals and both of those were away fixtures

Both sides have found the net in 5 of 13 league games but BTTS? (no) has been the way to go in all 6 home games

Kaizer Chiefs:

Chiefs lost 1-0 at Chippa on Wednesday night to finish the round seventh in the standings with 16 points from 13 games

Until the midweek defeat in Port Elizabeth Chiefs had been unbeaten in the previous 6 road trips with 3 wins and 3 draws with the victories coming at Cape Town City, Maritzburg and Sundowns

Overall 3 of 13 league games have gone over 2.5 goals including 1 of 7 away fixtures

Both sides have found the net in 6 of 13 league games including 2 of 7 road trips

2-3 goals in total has arrived in 8 of 13 league games

The Verdict:

Chiefs are proving expensive to follow and once again the coach is under big pressure. Stars have steadied their ship but whether they have enough to win this is another matter and a Chiefs clean sheet is the call as the visitors defence is in way better form than their attack.

Bet: Chiefs clean sheet? (yes) at 29/20
