Happy Mashiane, Kaizer Chiefs, August 2022
Amakhosi are desperate to avoid their third successive defeat and coach Arthur Zwane will have to field a team capable of stunning Masandawana.

Kaizer Chiefs will be the underdogs when they square off with Mamelodi Sundowns at FNB Stadium in Saturday's blockbuster PSL clash.
Amakhosi have never lost twice to Masandawana in the league in the same season since 1996 when the PSL era started.
The Soweto giants will be keen to avenge their 4-0 loss to Sundowns in the first round clash which was played last August.
GOAL predicts how Chiefs could start against their Tshwane rivals.

  • Itumeleng Khune Kaizer Chiefs.

    GOALKEEPER - Itumeleng Khune

    The Chiefs captain endured a poor game against AmaZulu FC as the Glamour Boys suffered an embarrassing 4-0 loss last week Friday and he will be looking to make amends in the Gauteng Derby clash.

  • Reeve Frosler of Kaizer Chiefs.

    RIGHT-BACK - Reeve Frosler

    The former South Africa under-17 international has re-established himself as Amakhosi's first-choice right-back ahead of Dillan Solomons who tends to struggle defensively.

  • Sifiso Hlanti, Kaizer Chiefs, September 2022

    LEFT-BACK - Sifiso Hlanti

    Chiefs were exposed in the left side of their defence during the game against AmaZulu with Hlanti missing, but he is now back from suspension having proved to be a reliable left-back for the Naturena side.

  • Edmilson Dove, Kaizer Chiefs, September 2022

    CENTRE-BACK - Edmilson Dove

    The left-footed defender is now coach Arthur Zwane's first-choice centre-back and his ball-playing ability is vital to the team's build-up play from the back.

  • Erick Mathoho, Kaizer Chiefs, October 2022

    CENTRE-BACK - Erick Mathoho

    With Amakhosi have conceded five goals in their last two games as the team struggles to defend against aerial balls, Mathoho is most likely to be handed his maiden start of the season due to his aerial prowess.  

  • Samkelo Zwane Kaizer Chiefs.

    CENTRAL MIDFIELDER - Samkelo Zwane

    The promising midfielder was outclassed by George Maluleka in their midfield battle during the game against AmaZulu, but Samkelo could start once again with Phathutshedzo Nange out injured. 

  • Yusuf Maart, Kaizer Chiefs, September 2022


    The former Orlando Pirates midfielder is the heartbeat of Amakhosi's midfield and he will be eager to stamp his authority in the middle of the park against an in-form Sundowns side.

  • Keagan Dolly of Kaizer Chiefs.


    The talented playmaker missed the game against AmaZulu due to a concussion he sustained during the defeat to Sekhukhune United on January 7, but he resumed full training with his teammates this week. 

  • Kgaogelo Sekgota, Kaizer Chiefs, August 2022

    LEFT FORWARD - Kgaogelo Sekgota

    Sundowns should be wary of Sekgota who caused havoc for Downs' backline last August which led to Chiefs being awarded a penalty after the tricky winger was fouled in the box.

  • Ashley Du Preez of Kaizer Chiefs.

    RIGHT FORWARD - Ashley du Preez

    With Khama Billiat unavailable due to an injury, Du Preez looks set to start and the Cape Town-born attacker will be hoping to use his explosive speed to unlock the Masandawana's stubborn defence.

  • Bonfils-Caleb Bimenyimana Kaizer Chiefs.

    CENTRE FORWARD - Bonfils-Caleb Bimenyimana

    The towering frontman missed a penalty last weekend and he will be determined to make amends by scoring against Masandawana and help his side secure a win.
