It has been a hectic start to the season for the Amakhosi. Their first three games of the PSL were matches the Amakhosi wants to forget quickly.

They drew to Chippa United before losing the following two games. The losses include a 1-0 defeat at the hands of TS Galaxy.

The loss to TS Galaxy must have been the tipping point, as Kaizer Chiefs returned to winning ways. They beat Amazulu 3-0 and humbled Stellenbosch 2-0.

Despite the wins, there is still the feeling of uncertainty with Kaizer Chiefs. There seem to be more questions about the side than answers.

Can the Amakhosi prove to their fans and critics that they remain a top dog in South Africa? Time will tell.

Sundowns in imperial form

While Kaizer Chiefs beat Cape Town City FC 1-2 to reach the semi-final of the MTN8, Sundowns scraped a 1-0 win over Moroka Swallows.

It is only a tiny indication of how domineering the Brazilians have been in this campaign.

In the PSL, they have been in imperial form with six straight wins and are bearing down the Amakhosi record of eight wins in their opening games of the season.

While Sundowns may have won the PSL more times than any other club, the MTN8 is a different ball game.

They have struggled in the competition and might be the case again.

The first leg of the Kaizer Chiefs vs Mamelodi Sundowns live in the MTN8 semi-final should be a cracker.

There is a rich history between the two sides. The Amakhosi are down in a rut. They have seen their dominance over the Brazilians whittled down.

The last two meetings between both sides saw Sundowns triumphing. The Brazilians beat the Amakhosi 2-1 in their PSL clash in week two of the PSL.

Lucas Ribeiro and Neo Maema got their goals, while Ashley du Preez scored for Chiefs.

Since that loss, Kaizer Chiefs have picked up and recovered some of their playing staff from injury, while Sundowns have also lost a few players.

However, the Brazilians have so much depth that they have not witnessed a blip in their performances.

Players to watch

Kaizer Chiefs
Edson Castillo has proven to be a shrewd buy for the Amakhosi. He will play a vital role for Kaizer Chiefs if they are to overcome Sundowns.

Pule Mmodi has been in imperial form for the Amakhosi. In the last two PSL games, he has scored three goals for the Amakhosi. The fans Amakhosi fans will expect plenty from him.

Sundowns
With Peter Shalulile out to injury, the mantle of scoring has been on Lucas Ribeiro. The Brazilian forward has proved to be a capable striker. Amakhosi need to keep a close eye on him.
