Moses Mabhida Stadium will host Kaizer Chiefs vs Sekhukhune United Premier Soccer League fixture in a midweek clash on Wednesday evening. The match kicks off at 19:30 South African Standard Time, 27 September 2023.

Chiefs suffered a 2-1 defeat to Sundowns in the MTN 8 semi-final second leg last Saturday to miss out on a chance for a silverware this season. They've now gone four games without a win and are on the back of two consecutive defeats ahead of the visit of Babina Noko.

On the other hand, Brandon Truter's men come into this clash in fine form following back-to-back wins in the CAF Confederation Cup and Royal AM in the league last Wednesday.

Kaizer Chiefs vs Sekhukhune United predictions

Kaizer Chiefs will battle Babino Noko for all three points and try to pick themselves up after some disappointing run of results in the past few weeks. Here's how we think the game will play out

Prediction 1: Sekhukhune United Win or Draw

Brandon Truter's side have not lost in their last six games, a run of three wins in the CAF Confederation Cup and two wins and a draw in the PSL pits them in fine form coming to Moses Mabhida Stadium. On the other hand, Chiefs have two losses and two draws in their last four games and are not in the best possible form to beat Sekhukhune United. It'll interest you to also know that the visitors have triumphed over Chiefs in their last two meetings. We back them to not go home empty-handed.

Prediction 2: First Half Goal

Kaizer Chiefs and Sekhukhune United come into this clash on the back of witnessing at least a goal in their last two games. This fixture also saw a goal scored in the first half in their most recent encounter. From the aforementioned facts, we fancy there'll be a goal before the break as both teams lock horns on Wednesday evening.

Prediction 3: Less Than Three Total Goals

It's worth remembering that this fixture has not been a high-scoring one judging from precedent. Only five goals have been scored in the last four clashes between both teams; as a matter of fact, their last three skirmishes have seen just one goal scored. On one hand, four of five Kaizer Chiefs' last matches have ended on a low-scoring note while three of five Sekhukhune United's last matches have also followed a similar pattern. We expect the trend to continue in this clash.

Kaizer Chiefs vs Sekhukhune United Head-to-Head

This fixture has taken place four times since December 2021. Chiefs have won two games while Sekhukhune United have won two. Will there be a draw this time around?
