We take a look at the big DSTV Premiership clash taking place on Saturday between Kaizer Chiefs and Cape Town City.
Kaizer Chiefs have fallen to 5th on the table after a poor run that has seen them take just 1 point from the last 12 they have played for. They have lost their last 3 matches most recently 2-1 away at Golden Arrows and their last home game was a 1-0 defeat by SuperSport United.
Overall at home this season Chiefs have played 11, winning 5 and drawing 2 and their last 3 home games has seen them lose 1 and draw 2.
Cape Town City have been on a strong run of form and are undefeated in their last 9 matches they currently sit 3rd on the log, 2 points ahead of Chiefs having played the same number of matches. Their last game was a goalless draw at Mamelodi Sundowns in midweek and although only been able to win 3 out of 12 matches on the road they are undefeated in their last 4 away games.
Kaizer Chiefs home matches have averaged 2.2 goals this season and the last 5 games have failed to reach the 3 goal mark. Cape Town City were known for playing high scoring fixtures last season, but on their travels this year goals have been hard to come by. Their away matches average 1.4 goals each with only 3 of the 12 matches delivering you a profit had you backed over 2.5 goals.
These sides played to a goalless draw at Cape Town City earlier in the season and last season it was the away side winning 2-1 in each of the matches.

Kaizer Chiefs 27/20
Cape Town City 26/10
Suggested Bet: Cape Town City win at 26/10
Kaizer Chiefs seem to be going through some problems at the moment and an in form Cape Town City can take advantage and bag 3 points.
Looking at some of the other popular markets for punters, over 2.5 goals is trading at 15/10 and it would have arrived in the last 2 head-to-heads hosted by Kaizer Chiefs.
Both teams to score, yes, is priced at 21/20 and this bet would have arrived in both League matches last season. The correct score market is one I enjoy getting involved in especially if I am not having a big bet on the match result and here a speculative play that Cape Town City will repeat last year’s 2-1 victory is priced at 11/1.
