Team News Kaizer Chiefs

This season has been a disaster for Soweto’s tradition-steeped Kaizer Chiefs. They failed to capitalise on their good squad, did not play a major role in the national championship and were eliminated early on the international stage. As a result, their coach, Scotsman Stuart Baxter, was now relieved of his duties as head coach. His successor Arthur Zwane must now get Amakhosi back on track: Qualification for the CAF Champions League is still within reach. However, old and new champions Mamelodi Sundowns must be defeated on Sunday to move a step closer to second place, which entitles them to take part in the Champions League. With three matches remaining, Kaizer Chiefs are three points behind Real Kings and Cape Town City. Lately, however, Kaizer Chiefs’ results have been subterranean, especially at home. Of their last six home games, only the last one against Marumo Gallants was won.

Team news Mamelodi Sundowns

Mamelodi Sundowns are already confirmed as the old and new Premiership champions. This match in Johannesburg, the derby against the Chiefs, is therefore of little importance to Mamelodi Sundowns. But Mamelodi is not a team that rests on its laurels. Especially because of the great rivalry with neighbour Kaizer Chiefs. Besides, Kaizer Chiefs have no home advantage as Mamelodi itself plays most of its home matches at the FNB-Stadium. The champions are led by their outstanding midfielder Jali and can rely on the goal-scoring qualities of striker Peter Shalulile.

Head-to-head & statistics

  • In 18 matches, Kaizer Chiefs have won 6 times, Mamelodi 7 times
  • Kaizer are without a home win against Mamelodi since 2017
  • Mamelodi have scored the first goal in 78% of their games
  • Mamelodi score 30% of their goals in the last 15 minutes
  • Mamelodi’s Peter Shalulile has scored 22 goals (Kaizer’s top scorer is Keagan Dolly with “only” 8 goals)

Our betting tip for Kaizer Chiefs vs Mamelodi Sundowns

Of course, the new champions are favourites against the recently weak playing Kaizer Chiefs. But the coaching change has given new hope to Kaizer Chiefs’ lofty ambitions. They will be fighting for their lives in this top-of-the-table South African League match to keep their dream of qualifying for the CAF Champions League alive. We are betting on a win for Kaizer Chiefs in this match. In the event of a draw, the stake will be refunded. This bet is available with odds around 2.6 and even more at most books, for example at Interwetten.com.

Even as a child, I started typing the results of the Bundesliga with my friends at school. The stakes were modest back then: The lunch, a few marbles or maybe a milk slice. Then, at the age of 9, I played the penalty bet once - and immediately got 10 right. The previous week I had won 500 DM and in my childish imagination I was already imagining how many football pictures I could buy at the kiosk on the corner. Unfortunately, it was one of those match days when everything turned out as expected and I only won DM 8.10. Nevertheless, I followed the game with great interest. Nevertheless, the passion to correctly predict the outcome of sporting events haunted me for the rest of my life. I would have loved to own the sports almanac that Marty McFly bought in Back to the Future II. Much later, when I was already working as a journalist for newspapers and as a writer for television, I came across an international betting forum with over 100,000 members - and found out that a lot of people there were giving their tips on German football, but nobody seemed to have a real clue, so I wrote a few English-language preliminary reports with a few tips - and was right about everything. After that, an avalanche started. I got offers from bookmakers, sports papers and even betting syndicates to work for them - and I accepted a few of them too, experiencing the ups & downs of sports betting and travelling halfway around the world in the years that followed. There I met Chinese multimillionaires betting five to six figures, amateur players in Serbia or Turkey supporting their families with small stakes, South Africans gambling away half their fortune, Brazilians who could only leave their favelha and become rich by making the right tips. At one point my life was similar to Matthew McCaughaney's in the film Two For The Money - and far too much stress. I subsequently moved to another continent and ran an English-language football epaper about the Bundesliga from there. After the birth of my son, I devoted myself for many years only to artistic projects in the field of photography and literature. However, I am happy to share my knowledge and passion with the readers of bettingtipsafrica.
