Wits will look to put a halt to Kaizer Chiefs’ PSL title charge when the two sides meet at Soccer City on Sunday. Kick off is at 15:30 South African time.
Wits are on an eight-game unbeaten run in the league, though that includes six draws – the most recent of which was 1-1 away to Bloemfontein Celtic. The Clever Boys have claimed 22 points from 13 home matches so far in the 2019/20 season.
Chiefs have won just once in five league outings since the restart and suffered a sixth defeat of the season when they were beaten 1-0 at home by title rivals Mamelodi Sundown. The Amakhosi, however, have claimed an impressive 29 points from 13 away matches in this campaign.
It’s a crunch clash for Kaizer Chiefs. Like defending champions Sundowns, also in action later on Sunday, Chiefs have just three PSL fixtures remaining. The two sides are level on points with Amakhosi leading on goal difference, so every match is vital heading into the season’s conclusion.
