Kaizer Chiefs v SuperSport United (Premier Soccer League)
Match 6 Soccer 6 24 August S6 v3 P1
League Rankings: Kaizer Chiefs 2nd and SuperSport United 8th
Useful Facts: SuperSport United have been in the form of their lives recently, following their slow start to the campaign which saw them fall to a 2-0 defeat at the hands of rivals Mamelodi Sundowns. Both Orlando Pirates and Bidvest Wits, the most recent sides to face Matsatsantsa, know just how potent Kaitano Tembo’s charges can be on their day, and so Kaizer Chiefs will have to sweat for victory this coming Saturday. Bradley Grobler is currently enjoying what some consider to be the best form of his career, and will be hoping to catch the Amakhosi rear-guard, which has conceded three goals in two games in the league so far, in sixes and sevens. His strike partner and new signing Thamsanqa Gabuza, will have been buoyed by his brace against the Clever Boys in the MTN8 quarterfinal match last weekend and, being an ex-Buccaneer, will enjoy nothing more than putting one over the Naturena-based outfit. For the home side, Lebogang Manyama and Erick Mathoho, both on two goals although playing on opposite ends of the pitch, should be key for Ernst Middendorp’s lads. It will be interesting to see how man of the moment Khama Billiat does, as it’s been confirmed he will be back available for selection for this game, following all the talk about his possible move back to Mamelodi Sundowns in the current transfer window.

Black Leopards v Highlands Park (Premier Soccer League)
Match 1 Soccer 6 Pool 24 August S6 v3 P1
League Rankings: Black Leopards 15th and Highlands Park 12th
Useful Facts: The one thing uppermost on the minds of the two camps will be collecting all three points on offer on the day and nothing else, considering where they sit on the log standings. No one wants to see itself sitting where these two teams are place, even two games into the campaign. It’s clear to see that Black Leopards have been missing their talisman Mwape Musonda, last season’s top scorer in the league, as he has not been registered in anticipation of a move to bigger things. They have lost both their opening two games of the season and the sooner they find their scoring boots, the better. The one positive for them is that after all the speculation about their coach Lionel Soccoia leaving, he seems to be staying after all, thus maintaining that much-needed stability in camp. Highlands Park go to Thohoyandou Stadium high in spirits, following their 1-0 win over Orlando Pirates to progress to the semi-finals of the MTN8. This promises to be a hard-fought encounter.
Thokozani Xaba: Draw
Manchester United v Crystal Palace (English Premier League)
Match 4 Soccer 6 Pool 24 August S6 v3 P1
League Rankings: Manchester United 4th and Crystal Palace 14th
Useful Facts: Manchester United have made a perfect start to the season, emphatically beating Chelsea 4-0 on the opening day of the campaign, before being held to a 1-1 draw by Wolves on Monday evening, and will surely be looking to get back to winning ways when they host Crystal Palace at Old Trafford this Saturday. Meanwhile, the visitors are winless after two games, having lost the first game and drawn their most recent one against Sheffield United last Sunday. They won’t want to make things easy for the Red Devils though, with an aim of moving up the league table. The last time the two sides faced each other, in February this year, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s charges emerged 3-1 winners, having drawn 0-0 in the game preceding that, in November 2018.
