Kaizer Chiefs, fresh off a 2-0 win against Stellenbosch, will be aiming to extend their winning streak, while Royal AM, currently positioned ninth on the table, hope to continue their positive form following a thrilling 3-2 victory over Chippa United.
Moreover, this game presents an ideal chance for Kaizer Chiefs to shift their supporters’ focus from the unpleasant occurrence that took place at the Mbombela Stadium after their defeat to TS Galaxy which led to supporters displaying their unhappiness through throwing objects at Kaizer Chiefs head coach Molefi Ntseki.
KAIZER CHIEFS’ QUEST FOR CONSISTENCY
Kaizer Chiefs have been steadily improving and are determined to produce consistent positive results to gather momentum leading up to their crucial semi-final clash against Mamelodi Sundowns on August 23rd. However, considering the history between the two teams, Royal AM has proven to be a challenging opponent for Amakhosi.
Out of the six meetings, Kaizer Chiefs have only managed to secure victory twice, making Royal AM one of the ‘’voodoo’’ teams for the Glamour Boys.
KEY PLAYERS RETURNING
The commencement of training for two of Kaizer Chiefs’ key players, Keegan Dolly, and Edmilson Dove, should provide a significant boost for the team. Their return will bolster the squad’s overall quality and depth, enhancing their chances of securing a positive result against Royal AM.
VENUE AND KICK-OFF TIME
The highly anticipated match between Kaizer Chiefs and Royal AM will take place at the iconic FNB Stadium on Saturday. Kick-off is scheduled for 5:30 PM, providing fans with an excellent opportunity to witness an enthralling battle between two competitive teams.
