The South African Premier Soccer League is back in action with another set of matches this weekend as Kaizer Chiefs take on TS Galaxy on Sunday. Both teams can be impressive on their day and will want to win this game.
TS Galaxy finished in ninth place in the league last year and have been inconsistent in recent months. The home side suffered a narrow defeat to TS Sporting last week and will need to step up this weekend.
Kaizer Chiefs, on the other hand, have not been at their best over the past year and finished in eighth place last season. The Chiefs have a good squad and have a point to prove in this match.
TS Galaxy vs Kaizer Chiefs Head-to-Head
Kaizer Chiefs have a good record against TS Galaxy and have won two out of four matches played between the two teams. TS Galaxy have managed only one victory against Kaizer Chiefs and will want to level the scales this weekend.
The previous game between the two teams took place in November last year and ended in a 0-0 stalemate. Both teams wasted several chances on the day and will need to be more clinical in this fixture.
