Eyes will be firmly fixed on the potentially explosive encounter between struggling Kaizer Chiefs and high flying SuperSport United at FNB Stadium when DStv Premiership action resumes on Saturday. Amakhosi goes into this clash with coach Gavin Hunt and his players under unbearable pressure as they have failed to win in their last five matches in all competitions. On the other hand, high on the agenda for SuperSport United will be to narrow the gap on log-leaders Mamelodi Sundowns to two points with all the three points. Elsewhere, Baroka host Black Leopards in the anticipated Limpopo derby and the other interesting match of the weekend sees Swallows visiting Cape Town City with both teams desparate for a win.

 

Kaizer Chiefs vs SuperSport United

Date: Saturday, 20 February 2021

In simple terms, Kaizer Chiefs cannot afford to lose this match because coach Gavin Hunt and his misfiring players are under increasing pressure from the hard to please Amakhosi fans. A third successive defeat in the league may see them drop to the relegation zone on the table and leave them with a challenging job to revive their campaign. It is not going to be an easy task for them to return back to winning ways as SuperSport United, who are favourites to bag all the three points, are looking at closing the gap on Mamelodi Sundowns to two points at the top of the standings.

 

Chippa United vs TS Galaxy

Date: Saturday, 20 February 2021

Chippa United and TS Galaxy have blown hot and cold this season and this is an opportunity to start their respective revival plans. 11th placed TS Galaxy are better positioned on the log going into this clash that could go either way as they won their last outing against Black Leopards. On the other hand, Chippa could only manage a draw with Bloemfontein Celtic in their last match but they will be hopeful of getting a positive result because they are playing at home.

 

Baroka vs Black Leopards

Date: Saturday, 20 February 2021

Sparks are expected to fly at the Peter Mokaba Stadium in Polokwane where Baroka and Black Leopards will lock horns in the anticipated Limpopo derby. Over the past few seasons, these two teams have often managed to produce interesting battles whenever they met and this one is not expected to be any different. Baroka will be slight favourites to walk away with the three points as they recently managed two draws and as many losses compared the poor record of Leopards who have lost all their last four matches. As a result of those four losses, Leopards are sitting dangerously at the bottom of the log.

 

 

Tshakhuma Tsha Madzhivhandila (TTM) vs Stellenbosch

Date: Sunday, 21 February 2021

In their last match, TTM snapped a poor run of ten matches without a win when they shocked Maritzburg United to move to third from the bottom on the log. Their main aim will be to register their second win in a row for the first time this season when they take on Stellenbosch who have problems of their own. Stellenbosch are on a two match losing run and coach Steve Barker will know better than anyone that another defeat is going to be detrimental to their difficult mission of getting out of the bottom half of the table.

 

Cape Town City vs Swallows

Date: Sunday, 21 February 2021

This match has the potential to be explosive if both sets of players rise to the occasion. They go into this match having lost some momentum in recent weeks with hosts Cape Town City losing their last two league matches to AmaZulu and Golden Arrows. On the other hand, Swallows have dropped points eight points in recent matches as a result of their four successive draws. Those draws with Chippa United, Mamelodi Sundowns, SuperSport United and AmaZulu have seen them lose touch with log leaders Sundowns.
