To Win (90 Min)
Bloem Celtic 7/2
Kaizer Chiefs 7/10
Draw 5/2

Are the kings back? 

The AmaKhosi saw off an average Maritzburg United on Saturday, breaking a winless streak against the Team of Choice dating back to 2011.

It was good to see their class come through at home, and the 2-0 result a fair showing of proceedings.

What remains to be seen is their ability to do this against teams of equal class.

Wins like those build momentum, but with a hefty defeat to Supersport United and a tough draw with Swallows, they’re yet to show their mettle when the stakes are high.

Playing Bloem Celtic away from home gives them this opportunity.

Whilst they’re no league winners, they’re still considered big dogs in the PSL, and the only relief Chiefs will get from a road trip to Bloem is their hosts’ start to this season.

Their only win has come from against a shoddy Polokwane City outfit, and their only other yield from a home draw to provincial rivals Free State Stars.

Betting Prediction: Chiefs
It makes this clash an important one for both sides, but I see this only going one way. Chiefs, Chiefs and Chiefs at 7/10 for me please.
