With the DStv Premiership season starting in less than two weeks, here's a look at which clubs are expected to have the most difficult and easiest starts.
All 16 DStv Premiership teams will take to the pitch for their opening round of league fixtures next weekend, bringing South Africa's top-flight domestic competition back to television screens across the country.
Kick Off has assessed which clubs will have the most difficult start to the season mathematically, using a metric that assigns a difficulty rating to their particular games based on their first five opponents' league placings from the previous season.
Sundowns, the incumbent champions, have been given a difficulty rating of one, while freshly promoted Sekhukhune United have been given a rating of 16, with the lower the number, the more difficult the match.
After Usuthu were slated to meet Sundowns, Swallows FC, SuperSport United, Golden Arrows, and Baroka, all of which finished in the top 10 during the 2020/21 season, AmaZulu emerge from the analysis as the team with the most difficult start to the season.
Swallows are just behind them, with matches against Bloemfontein Celtic, AmaZulu, Orlando Pirates, SuperSport United, and Cape Town City on their schedule, while Matsatsantsa have the third most tough start to the season.
Meanwhile, despite being drawn against five of the six remaining teams from outside the top ten last season, including Chippa United, Maritzburg United, Stellenbosch FC, Baroka FC, and Golden Arrows, newcomers Sekhukhune have been given the most beneficial draw.
