Golden Arrows vs Kaizer Chiefs match preview

Golden Arrows

Golden Arrows will be hoping for a repeat of their 3-1 thrashing of the Citizens in the Knockout Cup in the team's last outing.

Back to league action, Mabhuti Khanyeza's men will look to string a seventh unbeaten run across all competitions and extend their PSL unbeaten streak to six matches.

Ahead of kick-off, Arrows are 3rd on the log with 17 points accrued from eight league matches.

Kaizer Chiefs

After suffering a disappointing loss in their previous game against AmaZulu in the Knockout Cup, Cavin Johnson's side will look to return to winning ways.

Kaizer Chiefs and their travelling supporters will be hoping that they can get a better result in a potential tough clash with Golden Arrows.

They're currently on the back of two defeats, one win and one draw in the last four league games. Chiefs have 11 points and are placed 8th on the table after nine matches.

Away from home, AmaKhosi will battle to take all three points against an in-form side with current performances suggesting otherwise.

Golden Arrows vs Kaizer Chiefs team news

Golden Arrows manager Khanyeza will be happy not to have any fitness concerns to worry about before this match, thanks to an injury-free squad ready to go.

Similarly, coach Johnson will be pleased to have a fully injury-free squad to pick from with zero fitness concerns to speak of before this match.

More good news for the team is the signing of a talented defender Luke Fleurs on a two-year deal with an option to extend for a further season, as announced on the club's X handle.

The addition of Fleurs will strengthen the defensive unit of the team as they look to return back to their best under a new interim manager.

Golden Arrows vs Kaizer Chiefs predictions

Both teams will come into this clash with the mindset of avoiding defeat; interestingly, though, this fixture has not ended in stalemates since 2020 with five matches played between them since that time.

We anticipate a very tough game for both sides while we dish out three predictions.

Prediction 1: Kaizer Chiefs to not go home empty-hand

Golden Arrows are coming into this game as the bookies' favourites to win; they're backed at 2.45 odds to 2.80 odds for Kaizer Chiefs on 1xbet at the time of writing.

We know Arrows have beaten Chiefs in three of their last four meetings and are currently on a run of five wins and a draw in their previous six matches across all competitions. Still we back AmaKhosi not to lose.

Every now and then, we have seen teams turn a new leaf following the sacking of their former coach.

We fancy a good showing from Kaizer Chiefs away from home like they did last season with either a win or draw to conclude Johnson's first game in charge of the team.

Prediction 2: Goals at both ends

Neither of these teams have been pushovers when it comes to finding the back of the net. As a matter of fact, both teams have scored in four of the last six meetings between them, with their most recent skirmish ending 2-3 for Golden Arrows.

While Golden Arrows have scored in their last three outings this season, Chiefs have failed to score in two of their last three games. However, we strongly back both teams to score at the Mpumalanga Stadium.

Prediction 3: Over 2.5 goals

Golden Arrows have been involved with at least three goals in six of their last eight matches this season, while just two of Chiefs' last eight have ended with at least three goals scored.

Having pointed that out, these teams have given us high-scoring results in their last six encounters, with 20 goals scored. In those six clashes between them, four have ended with at least three goals scored. We anticipate Saturday's affair to end with over 2.5 goals.
