Kaizer Chiefs FC will travel to Lucas Moripe Stadium to play Mamelodi Sundowns on Wednesday, August 9, 2023. The two will be trying to improve on their performance in their opening game of the season.
Mamelodi Sundowns are the defending champions and have won the league six times in a row, but they have suffered a surprise defeat to Kaizer Chiefs, which means that despite their winning mindset, they do not have a clear winning record versus Amakhosi.
When they face the defending champions, Kaizer Chiefs FC will be trying to capitalize on their heritage and make a statement. They will rely on the ability of their midfielder Castillo to subdue Sundowns’ midfielders for 90 minutes and take control of the game.
Sundowns, on the other hand, defeated the Chiefs twice last season and will be eager to continue their winning streak.
Kaizer Chiefs had five August fixtures.
Chiefs are under pressure to win after failing to score in their opening game of the season, which ended in a 0-0 tie.
