Chiefs welcome Maritzburg United

Amakhosi will host the Team of Choice in a weekend of the penultimate fixtures of the 2017/18 Absa Premiership season.

The match will be played at FNB Stadium on Saturday, 28 April. Kick-off is at 15:00.

Kaizer Chiefs and Maritzburg United are in a tight race for third position on the log. The Pietermaritzburg-based side are presently holding third place, having collected 43 points from 28 games. The Glamour Boys are in fourth spot, one point behind Maritzburg.

This much anticipated clash takes place at the backdrop of contrasting outcomes in their last two games. Amakhosi were edged by Golden Arrows on Tuesday, while the Team of Choice gained a point from Mamelodi Sundowns on Wednesday.

On 20 September 2017, Gustavo Páez produced blows in the 13th and 61st minute to help Chiefs to a first round 2-0 victory over Maritzburg at a sold out Harry Gwala Stadium.

It’s third against fourth – there is a lot at stake, as third position will mean qualification for the CAF Confederation Cup.

Tickets for the match are on sale at Computicket and Shoprite/Checkers outlets nationwide. Cost per ticket is R40.
