Kaizer Chiefs will need to overturn a 3-0 deficit in the second leg of the MTN8 semi-final against Orlando Pirates to advance to the final. The Soweto Derby is the biggest match in Africa and Chiefs will hope to perform better at the FNB Stadium on Sunday.

Kaizer Chiefs Form


Kaizer Chiefs have struggled to get going this season under new coach, Gavin Hunt. They have only scored once in the last four matches which will be of great concern.

Chiefs lost their opening league match 3-0 to Mamelodi Sundowns before beating Chippa United 1-0 away. Last weekend Chiefs suffered a humiliating 3-0 loss away to arch-rivals, Orlando Pirates in the first leg of the MTN 8 semi-final.

In midweek Hunt’s charges could only manage a 0-0 draw against newly promoted TS Galaxy.

It will take some time for Hunt to get Chiefs playing the way he wants and given the short pre-season, the latest run of form isn’t that surprising. They will however need to find form soon as another loss to Pirates may be too much to bare.

Right-back Reeve Frosler is a doubt for this match while the only other injury in the Chiefs squad is that of forward, Samir Nurkovic.

Prior to that, Pirates drew 1-1 against Stellenbosch FC and AmaZulu before beating Pirates in their last match on Wednesday night 1-0. Siphesihle Ndlovu hit the winner 12 minutes from time.
