Kaizer Chiefs will be keen to move up the log but could face a stiff test as they prepare to play against a rejuvenated Stellenbosch FC team at the FNB Stadium in Johannesburg.
Chiefs are fourth in the league with 37 points after 23 games. They will be eyeing second place which will see them enter next season’s CAF Champions League. They are two points behind second place SuperSport United. Chiefs have won their last three games on the trot and their form in recent weeks has been very impressive.
Stellies are eighth in the league with 30 points after 23 games. Their recent form has been good as they have won six out of their last seven games in all competitions. After a slow start to the season, the Western Cape based side are playing positive football and will be eyeing nothing less than a solid top eight finish this season which will see them playing in next season’s MTN 8 competition.

Chiefs last game was their 3-2 win over Maritzburg United.
Chiefs have won their last four games on the bounce.

Latest Stellies results
Stellies last win was their 3-2 win over AmaZulu
Stellies have won their last two games and are unbeaten in their last seven games.
Stellies have scored nine goals in their last three games in all competitions, conceding four.
The one thing that Chiefs have struggled with this season is consistency and when Stellies get going, they are an incredibly tough team to play against. I expect this to be a very closely fought contest but in the end, Stellies will come out with a narrow 1-0 win.

Anytime Goal Scorers
Kaizer Chiefs- Ashley Du Preez- His pace is something that can potentially cause problems for Stellies. He will also be very familiar with their defence after having played for them last season.
Stellies- Ikraam Rayners- He has been a hit since returning to Stellenbosch from SuperSport United in January. He will be keen to punish Chiefs and is dangerous on the counter-attack.
