Whatever you expected, results don't always go that way. Here's a look at PSL predictions for the weekend of 6 March 2020.

The Absa Premiership continues this weekend with Kaizer Chiefs looking to build on their lead at the top of the PSL log.

The Sea Robbers have their second chance to go above the Brazilians into second, with Pitso Mosimane’s men once again on CAF Champions League duty.

They go to mid-table Golden Arrows for a contest at the Sugar Ray Xulu Stadium on Saturday (18:00).

Maritzburg United could steal a march in the upper echelons on Friday night (20:00), when they kick off the weekend’s action at home to Polokwane City.

SuperSport United are out to back up last weekend’s win over Bidvest Wits when they visit Highlands Park on Sunday for a 15:30 kick off.

Cape Town City and Bloemfontein Celtic are also pressed into Sunday service when they meet in the Mother City’s Athlone Stadium at the same time.

Bidvest Wits are back on home turf for their fixture with Chippa United on Saturday (20:15).

There’s also a relegation showdown at the Peter Mokaba Stadium on Saturday afternoon (15:30) when lowly Baroka FC and Black Leopards meet to battle it out for survival.
