It’s another Wednesday with not many midweek football matches on offer as top European leagues are on hold as a result of the international break.
However, the focus of African football fans will be on the ABSA Premiership in South Africa where the penultimate round of matches for the 2019/20 season takes center stage.
It’s a tight affair at the top between Daniel Akpeyi’s Kaizer Chiefs and defending champions Mamelodi Sundowns. Both teams are tied on 53 points, but the Amakhosi are only ahead with better goals difference with just two games remaining.
Meanwhile, Super Eagles goalkeeper, Daniel Akpeyi is expected to be missing in goal for Kaizer Chiefs after going off with concussion in their defeat to Bidvest Wits, as they welcome Chidi Kwem’s Chippa United to the Orlando Stadium in Johannesburg for the first of their two must win matches.
Chiefs suffered a second successive loss – and extended their winless run to four matches – with a 1-0 loss against Wits on 30 August. The Amakhosi have claimed 24 points from 14 home matches so far this season.
Chippa extended their unbeaten run in the league to three matches, with a last-gasp equaliser from Thokozani Sekotlong securing a 1-1 draw at Stellenbosch on 28 August. The Chilli Boys have claimed 15 points from 14 away matches in the 2019/20 campaign.
There have been fewer than three goals scored in total in each of Chippa United’s last seven games. Kaizer Chiefs hold an 8-5 advantage over Chippa United in the 15 games they have played against each other with 2 draws. In the first meeting between these sides this season Kaizer Chiefs won 2-0 in November.
Elsewhere, in Sweden, young Nigerian midfielder Abdussalam Magashy is expected to lead the line for Sweden Division-1 Norra leader, Varnamo when they travel away to take on the basement team, Karlskrona.
Varnamo are unbeaten in their last eight matches [W7, D1].
