Coming into the weekend program Supersport are in fifth place and only 5 points off the summit with 7 rounds of matches still to play. Bridging the gap to league leaders Sundowns will be no easy task but Downs and second placed Pirates are not in league action this weekend so this is an opportunity to crank up the pressure.
In their most recent home game a very late goal was enough for Supersport to see off Free State Stars 1-0 and they have now won 5 of their last 6 league outings. Of 11 home games Supersport have won 7, drawn 1 and lost 3 scoring 15 goals and conceding 8.
Chiefs are 3 points behind Supersport and they can be found in seventh spot. They are unbeaten in their last 4 league games, 2 draws followed by home wins over Highlands (3-2) and Maritzburg (1-0). They would appear to have too much to do to threaten the title but victory here would take them above Supersport on goal difference. Chiefs have won 4 of 11 away fixtures, drawing 5 and losing 2 with 16 goals scored and 10 conceded.
Head to Head
The teams have already met 4 times this season. The first meetings came in the MTN8 semi finals where a 2-2 draw in the first leg was followed by a 1-0 away win for Supersport in the second and they progressed 3-2 on aggregate.
Chiefs took some sort of revenge in the Telkom Knockout with a 1-0 victory and the most recent clash came in the Absa Premiership in December and Chiefs also edged that game 1-0.
There is plenty of incentive for both sides to go for maximum points here and in the circumstances both teams to find the net gets the vote.
Bet: Both teams to score? (yes) at even money
