Maritzburg United has always been a tricky team for Kaizer Chiefs in the past. The last time Amakhosi won in the league against Maritzburg was back in 2018. Can they end their bad run in Pietermaritzburg?
Kaizer Chiefs will be out to prove a point when they tackle Maritzburg United today in a Dstv Premiership encounter. Chiefs have struggled in away matches to beat Maritzburg United who have constantly bolstered their structures over the past decade as they have sought to spend more time in the top eight than fighting relegation. They have always been an Achilles heel for Chiefs whose record is not one to savior. Amakhosi will seek to use their last match as the perfect morale boost. Chiefs claimed bragging rights over Soweto rivals Orlando Pirates before the break and will be hoping it will give them the added confidence to see out the year's final eight scheduled fixtures before the year-end break.
Key to their success has to beinstrumental forward Keagan Dolly who has shone in the last 4 games for chiefs having scored 4 goals. There will be a lot of familiar faces none other than former coach Ernst Midderndorp who won the league with the mighty Amakhosi. It will be interesting to see the type of tactics used to try to nullify the Chiefs attack. Amakhosi have won four times in their 14 trips to the KwaZulu-Natal capital.
I personally believe it's going to be a tough challenge for Kaizet Chiefs to break down Maritzburg United. When a team stays compact in defence, such as Stellenbosch, Chiefs finds it very difficult to break down. Billiat is still underperforming and needs to step up his game so that his quality can shine.
Do you think Chiefs will win and go into the top 4?
