Golden Arrows prepare for this game after a 1-1 Premier Division drawn result versus Baroka.
It has been all too rare in recent times that Golden Arrows have shown defensive steel. In fact, Abafana Bes'thende have failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 5 of their previous 6 matches, leaking 8 goals along the way. Previous results aside, we will just have to wait and see whether that pattern will be maintained in this match.
In their last game, Kaizer Chiefs drew 0-0 in the Premier Division match with TS Galaxy.
In 5 of the past 6 clashes involving Kaizer Chiefs, a notably low volume of goals have been struck between them and their opposition. The overall average number of goals per game in that period is a mere 1.33, with the average goals for Amakhosi equalling 0.5.
Head to head
Looking at the statistics for their head to head duels dating back to 23/09/2017, neither club has come out on top overall with Golden Arrows winning 2 of those games, Kaizer Chiefs 2 and 2 being drawn in regulation time.
An aggregate of 12 goals were yielded between them in these games, with 6 from Abafana Bes'thende and 6 for Amakhosi. That is an average goals per game value of 2.
Team News: Golden Arrows
Golden Arrows boss Steve Komphela will be grateful to have no fitness concerns at all before this clash owing to a completely injury-free squad to pick from. Divine Lunga cannot play in this game through suspension.
Team News: Kaizer Chiefs
Due to a fully healthy group available to select from, Kaizer Chiefs manager Ernst Middendorp has no fitness concerns to speak of ahead of this game. Eric Mathoho is ineligible for this match because of suspension.
In our opinion, Golden Arrows may well find it hard to find the net against this Kaizer Chiefs outfit who we think will do enough to score at the other end and edge ahead.
We’re therefore seeing a very competitive game with a 0-1 victory for Kaizer Chiefs at the end of the match.
Expecting it to be tight.
