DStv Premiership

Teams: AmaZulu v Kaizer Chiefs

Date: 13 January 2023 

Venue: Moses Mabhida Stadium

Chiefs could not build momentum to make a case for their league title ambitions after a 1-0 loss to Sekhukhune United last Saturday ended their two-game winning run.

Amakhosi find themselves in fourth place on the standings, three points behind second-placed SuperSport United but they will need to win by at least five goals to topple Matsatsantsa on the log.
