Buoyed by their back-to-back wins against AmaZulu and Stellenbosch in the PSL for the first time this season, AmaKhosi will be looking to maintain their streak and steer clear off their today opponents and up to fourth on the table.
On the other hand, Royal AM will also be aiming for a win against a Chiefs' side they've not had the best results against in recent times, and will be confident of their form having beaten TS Galaxy and Chippa United ahead of this clash.

Kaizer Chiefs vs Royal AM predictions
This fixture has been a fascinating one in the past and fans will hope to watch yet another thrilling contest from both teams.
Prediction 1: Kaizer Chiefs to Emerge Victorious
Molefi Ntseki's side almost handed Sundowns their first loss of the season in the MTN 8 semi final first leg to show that the team's resurgence has come to stay; they'll be eager to prove this as they take on Royal AM. However, both teams are in good form coming into this bout, as such we expect a keenly contested match; but be that as it may, Chiefs have all it takes to string their third straight victory over the visitors.
Prediction 2: Both Teams to Score
Two of the last three meetings between both teams witnessed goals scored by either side. Chiefs and Royal AM are also coming directly into this clash on both teams scoring affairs in their respective last outings. AmaKhosi played out a 1-1 draw with Mamelodi Sundowns, while Royal AM defeated Chippa United 3-2. You can see that both teams will try to score each other and we're fairly confident this clash will produce goals for either side.
Prediction 3: Over 2.5 Total Goals
The last three matches between Kaizer Chiefs and Royal AM have averaged three goals on two occasions. It's also important to point out that the visitors have been involved in high-scoring encounters in three of their four previous games; although Chiefs have not particularly been involved in over 2.5 affairs lately, we still fancy a high-scoring battle between them and Royal AM.
Kaizer Chiefs vs Royal AM Head-to-Head
These two teams have met six times from 2021 from the data that we have of them. The head to head record shows that out of the six meetings they've had, Kaizer Chiefs has won two times and Royal AM has won four times; while zero fixtures have ended in a draw.
Kaizer Chiefs recent form
Since losing 1-0 to TS Galaxy on 20 August, Molefi Ntseki's outfit have gone unbeaten in three straight games; with two wins and a recent draw against Mamelodi Sundowns.
Royal AM recent form
After back-to-back heavy defeats to Orlando Pirates and Stellenbosch in the league, Royal AM have now picked up two wins in their last two outings.
