KaizerChiefsOur headline DSTV Premiership match taking place on Saturday sees Kaizer Chiefs host Swallows FC, the home side have an outside chance of a top two finish whilst the visitors are battling to avoid relegation




Kaizer Chiefs


Chiefs have given themselves some sort of chance of finishing in the top 2 with 2 wins and a draw in their last 3 league games. The wins both came by a 1-0 scoreline, at home to Gallants and away at Sekhukhune and in between those matches they drew 1-1 with Sundowns who have long since secured the DSTV Premiership title.


Coming into their final game of the season Chiefs are fourth, level on points with Royal AM and 3 shy of second placed Cape Town City. Royal AM still have 2 games to play (Sundowns on Saturday and Pirates, probably next week) whilst City finish their campaign on Saturday away to fifth placed Stellenbosch. Essentially to finish as runners up and qualify for the CAF Champions League Chiefs need a win and Cape Town City would have to lose and Royal AM would also have fail to win both their final matches.


Swallows FC


Swallows played out a 0-0 draw at home to Chippa last time out, a result which means Chippa are safe but Swallows remain on the edge. Swallows are second from bottom but only goal difference is keeping them ahead of Baroka who's final fixture is a visit to Maritzburg on Saturday. Looking up Swallows are 2 points shy of TS Galaxy who's final game comprises of a visit to Chippa on Saturday.


Swallows have drawn 4 of their last 6, winning 1 (3-2 at home to Baroka) and losing 1 (1-0 at home to Amazulu).

The Verdict


Given all Saturday's matches kick off at the same time it will be a nervy afternoon, especially for Swallows. With 3 sides looking for a top 2 spot and 4 still in danger of the drop, news of how other games are going could have a big impact on team tactics come half time.


One thing that is certain is that Chiefs definitely need a win and if we see an early enough goal in their game against Swallows that current price for 3 goals or more will look very attractive.


Bet: Total match goals over 2.5 at 1.75 with Betway
