Polokwane vs Kaizer Chiefs stats and predictions

As it stands, hosts Polokwane are 10th on the Premier Soccer League table with 17 points from 13 league matches. While they are tied on points with Kaizer Chiefs, it's worth mentioning that Amakhosi are two points ahead in eighth place. With that in mind, these are our Polokwane vs Kaizer Chiefs predictions:

Prediction 1: Draw

It can be said that Polokwane have no wins in their last five league matches. However, they actually lost just one of those games. The reality is, four of Polokwane's last five PSL matches ended in stalemates.

We would also like to point out that recent clashes between these teams have not been one-sided, especially at this stadium. As a matter of fact, in Amakhosi's last six trips to this stadium, the spoils were shared four times, with both teams winning one game apiece. All things considered, we believe that this match will end in a draw.

Prediction 2: Both teams will not score

Polokwane have not just struggled to win matches lately, they've also found it difficult to score goals. Phuti Johnson Mohafe's men failed to score in three of their last four matches, scoring just once in that stretch.

In like manner, Kaizer Chiefs blanked in three of their last six matches across all competitions. At least one team did not score in eight of Polokwane's last 11 matches, four of Kaizer Chiefs' last six games too. Considering both teams scored in just three of Amakhosi's last nine trips to this stadium, we shouldn't expect goals at both ends.

Prediction 3: Less than three total goals

For our last Polokwane vs Kaizer Chiefs prediction, let's take a look at the over/under goals market. These teams squared off against each other a fair few times in the past, and most of those encounters were on the low-scoring side.

It may interest you to know that five of the last seven skirmishes between these teams produced less than three goals. Similarly, four of Kaizer Chiefs' last six matches went below the 2.5 goal mark, nine of Polokwane's last 11 games too. On that note, this should be a low-scoring affair.
