Kaizer Chiefs vs AmaZulu predictions
This will be the second time fans will see this fixture take place this season. Their last encounter was a thrilling one. As such, the fans will look to watch another entertaining game between AmaKhosi and Usuthu.
Prediction 1: Kaizer Chiefs to emerge victorious
Both teams squared off on 26th August at the FNB Stadium in their first clash of the season.
Chiefs played their best game on the day, defeating AmaZulu 3-0 from a Pule Mmodi double and Edson Castillo scoring the third goal. We're backing Ntseki's men to once again put Usuthu to the sword and advance to the next stage of the competition.
Prediction 2: Both teams to score
Encounters between both teams have ended with goals on both sides in 4 of their 8 previous meetings.
Although this fixture has not given us goals on both ends in their previous three games, it's important to note that both teams come into this clash on the back of two both teams scoring games this season.
We're fairly confident that goals will be scored by these teams as they lock horns in the Carling Knockout.
Prediction 3: Over 2.5 goals
Our last prediction for the Kaizer Chiefs vs AmaZulu game is on the over 2.5 goals market.
The Previous two games between them ended 3-0 and 4-0, respectively, with Chiefs winning one and AmaZulu winning the other. Also, these teams come into this clash from high-scoring matches in two of their last three games, these facts increase another high-scoring chance we fancy to occur as both teams try to outdo each other.
