All roads lead to Athlone Stadium as Stellenbosch vs Kaizer Chiefs go head to head in the Premier Soccer League on Wednesday evening. Kick-off is set for 19:30 South African Standard Time on 30 August 2023.

Chiefs are a long way off the top of the standings as a result of the team's poor start to the league season. At the time of writing, Stellenbosch ranked 7th and have made steady progress with their game strategies. On the other hand, Kaizer Chiefs currently hold 11th position on the league table, way below their usual standard.

Stellenbosch vs Kaizer Chiefs probable lineups

Here are our probable lineups of how we think these teams will start this Premier Soccer League clash.

Stellenbosch

Goalkeeper: Oscarine Masuluke
Defenders: Deano van Rooyen, Thabo Moloisane, Ismael Olivier Toure, Fawaaz Basadien
Midfielders: Genino Palace, Sibongiseni Mthethwa, Jayden Adams, Devin Titus, Qobolwakhe Sibande
Forwards: Iqraam Rayners

Stellenbosch will begin the clash as the better placed team over the opponents; but with no favoured formation used in their last games, it's unclear what setup coach Steve Barker will employ this time. Nevertheless, Iqraam Rayners is expected to spearhead the attack for the host.

Kaizer Chiefs

Goalkeeper: Brandon Petersen
Defenders: Zitha Kwinika, Spiwe Msimango, Thatayaone Ditlhokwe, Sfiso Hlanti
Midfielders: Mduduzi Mdantsane, Yusuf Maart, Edson Castillo
Forwards: Tebogo Potsane, Ashley Du Preez, Pule Mmodi

The Glamour Boys put up their best performance of the current season as they recorded their first league win over AmaZulu last week to halt a worse start to the campaign. Molefi Ntseki will now hope his side continue the resurgence with Pule Mmodi inspiring the team to more wins.

Stellenbosch vs Kaizer Chiefs predictions

It's important to point out that both teams have played each other on many occasions, and we should expect an end-to-end affair in this much anticipated clash at the Orlando Stadium.

Prediction 1: Kaizer Chiefs Win or Draw

It's important to note that Stellenbosch has not won in 5 of the last 6 home games against Kaizer Chiefs; AmaKhosi have picked up 4 wins on that stretch while the Stellies defeated them only once. Also, Molefi Ntseki's side have won 6 of 11 encounters between them, losing on just two occasions. By these, we're backing Kaizer Chiefs to not go home empty-handed.

Prediction 2: Stellenbosch to Score

The Stellies have scored over 0.5 goals in each of their last 6 games against Kaizer Chiefs. They've also netted in 4 of their 5 games across all competitions so far this season. Furthermore, Stellenbosch have scored over 0.5 goals in each of their last 8 Premier Soccer League home games; they should be able to score in this fixture again.

Prediction 3: Minimum of Three Goals

Our last prediction for this anticipated clash is on the goals market. Stellenbosch have been involved with goals in their last two games coming into this battle just like their opponents who themselves have played over 2.5 in three of their last four games. It's worth knowing that the last three encounters between these teams have seen both sides scoring to produce at least three goals. Great choice!
