Peter Mokaba Stadium will host SuperSport United vs Kaizer Chiefs blockbuster derby clash in the Premier Soccer League on Wednesday. Kick-off is scheduled for 19:30 SAST.
SuperSport United come into this encounter on the back of a 1-1 draw with Gaborone United in the CAF Confederation Cup second preliminary round.
While Kaizer Chiefs played out a disappointing goalless draw with Royal AM in their last game, a match that highlighted much of the team's lack of cutting edge in front of the opposition goal post on the day.
With both teams looking to bounce back to winning ways, you wouldn't want to miss this clash!

SuperSport United vs Kaizer Chiefs predictions
Both teams are on a mission to end the season with a piece of silverware; however, for the Glamour Boys, the rebuilding continues under new coach Molefi Ntseki. Here are our predictions for the match.
Prediction 1: SuperSport to Win
Gavin Hunt’s men lost the last time they met Supersport by a single goal at the Peter Mokaba Stadium. Matsatsantsa have also won two of their last five games but were humbled at home by Durban side Golden Arrows, who put three unanswered goals past Goss to see them move up to second on the table. SuperSport will surely look to avoid another setback here and will go for the win especially with their crosstown rivals Mamelodi Sundowns now running away with the lead at the summit. They also have a H2H advantage in their favour.
Prediction 2: Goals at Both Ends
SuperSport United and the Glamour Boys failed to find the back of the net in their last league games respectively, and will look to return to scoring ways. It'll interest you to know that seven of the last nine encounters between both teams have yielded both teams' score results. Even though the match is going to be highly contested, we still expect goals from both sides.
Prediction 3: Over 2.5 Total Goals
The last seven matches between SuperSport United and Kaizer Chiefs have seen at least three goals scored in four encounters. It's also important to point out that Gavin Hunt's men have played over 2.5 matches in their last two PSL fixtures. With battles set to resume once more between both teams, we fancy a high-scoring game as Matsatsantsa and Chiefs lock horns on Wednesday evening.
