The Premier Division tie at King Zwelithini Stadium on Wednesday sees home team AmaZulu taking on opponents Kaizer Chiefs.
Our predictions, user poll and statistics for AmaZulu v Kaizer Chiefs can be found here including the latest game odds.
AmaZulu enter this match following a 1-1 Premier Division draw versus Bloemfontein Celtic.
It’s been a rare occasion in recent times that AmaZulu haven’t conceded. The reality is that Usuthu have failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 6 of their previous 6 matches, shipping 10 goals in the process. That kind of trend won’t necessarily follow through into this match, of course.
After tasting defeat last time out to Maritzburg United in Premier Division action, Kaizer Chiefs and their travelling fans will hope for a better result here.
The stats tell the story, and Kaizer Chiefs have been scored against in 6 of their last 6 games, seeing opposing sides hit 10 goals in all. In defence, Amakhosi certainly have room for improvement.
Coming into this contest, Kaizer Chiefs haven’t won away from home in the past 3 league matches.
Head to head
An examination of their most recent head-to-head meetings dating back to 22/11/2017 shows us that AmaZulu have won 1 of these and Kaizer Chiefs 3, with the tally of drawn results standing at 2.
In all, 10 goals were scored between them in this period, with 3 for Usuthu and 7 netted by Amakhosi. The average number of goals per game works out to 1.67.
Team News: AmaZulu
AmaZulu boss Jozef Vukušič has a full complement, with no fitness concerns to speak of before this game with a fully healthy group available for selection.
Team News: Kaizer Chiefs
Owing to a fully injury-free squad available to select from, Kaizer Chiefs boss Ernst Middendorp has no fitness concerns whatsoever coming into this game.
We think that AmaZulu could find themselves struggling to hit the back of the net against this Kaizer Chiefs lineup who we think will likely do enough to score at the other end and edge ahead.
We’re therefore seeing a 0-1 advantage for Kaizer Chiefs at the end of this one.
