Kaizer Chiefs vs AmaZulu predictions

These two teams have one mission on their minds, picking their first maximum points of the league season. It will be interesting to see how they fare against each other.

Prediction 1: Full-time Draw

Our first prediction for Kaizer Chiefs vs AmaZulu bout is a full-time draw. This bold prediction was necessitated by the fact that neither team has picked up all three points in the last three meetings at Kaizer Chiefs' home ground. Also, AmaZulu have not been able to fashion out a winning strategy so far this season, having drawn all last three matches. We're backing these teams to share the spoils in this match.

Prediction 2: Both Teams to Score

Granted, AmaZulu have failed to find the back of the net in their last three games; however, Kaizer Chiefs have been involved in both teams' scoring affairs in two of their last three skirmishes. It is worth mentioning that these teams have scored each other in four of their last seven fixtures; taking all these into consideration, chances are there will be a both teams scoring occurrence here.

Prediction 3: Under 2.5 Total Goals

Our last prediction for this bout is on the low-scoring perspective. These teams have played out a less than three goals affair in five out of six last skirmishes between them. Similarly, Pablo Franco's side have put up a 0-0 result in all three matches of the season so far, while Kaizer Chiefs have been involved in two under 2.5 scoring games in their last three matches of the PSL.

Kaizer Chiefs vs AmaZulu Head to Head

These two teams have squared off against each other on 17 occasions in the last nine years. Kaizer Chiefs have seven wins, AmaZulu have three wins, while seven games ended in draws.
