Kaizer Chiefs football club suffered a narrow 1-0 defeat to Royal AM in the opening fixture of the 2022/23 DStv Premiership campaign on Saturday.
The Soweto-based giants was not off on a good start with Arthur Zwane as the club's head coach in his first league match.
However, despite their defeat on matchday 1, the club looks set to maintain their home and winning record against Maritzburg United in the top flight.
The Naturena base side will be facing Maritzburg United on matchday 2 of the newly commenced DStv Premiership campaign on Women's Day on Tuesday, their first home fixture for the new campaign.
Kaizer Chiefs wants to pick up their first points against The Team of Choice who already have one point on the log standings after their 1-1 draw against Sekhukhune United at home.
Chiefs has the home ground advantage against their next opponent and aslo a home record as the black and gold won 10 out of their last 16 home matches against the Pietermaritzburg side.
The other six matches was four wins in favour of Maritzburg United and two draws. With good home win statistics like this, Chiefs should gather three points as their chances of making it 11 wins at home against Maritzburg is highly likely.
However, Maritzburg United should not be underestimated as they've added a few new signings and their league opener was a very competitive fixture with their players performing remarkably well.
Despite Kaizer Chiefs defeat to Royal AM, their new signings also performed as Yusuf Maart was outstanding in the club's midfield.
The club's next match will not be easy but a win ahead of their weekend fixture against Sundowns would be a good start at home.
