Chiefs welcome Chippa

Kaizer Chiefs will host Chippa United in an Absa Premiership match on Saturday, 7 April at FNB Stadium. Kick-off is at 15:00.

Games between Amakhosi and the Chilli Boys are always eye-catching and much-anticipated affairs.

Chiefs lost in the corresponding fixture hosted by Chippa United in Port Elizabeth on 6 December 2017. A solitary goal early in the game scored by Abel Mabaso decided the match at Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium.

With five league fixtures remaining, Amakhosi is on a high following back-to-back wins in the Nedbank Cup and the Absa Premiership.

Chiefs beat a stubborn Free State Stars 1-0 in a league game on Wednesday evening, while the Chilli Boys were humbled by Mamelodi Sundowns, losing 2-0.

Both sides have played 25 matches. Amakhosi have collected 39 points and are on fifth position on the league table. Chippa United are in 12th spot, having 30 points.

Chiefs are still on the hunt for the league title, while the Chilli Boys would want to move clear of the relegation play-off area. It sets the stage for a spectacle of a match.

Tickets are sold at Computicket and Shoprite/Checkers for R40.
