The match was highlighted by Mduduzi Shabalala’s decisive goal in the 76th minute, breaking the deadlock and ensuring Chiefs walked away with all three points. SuperSport United, on the other hand, faced their second consecutive loss of the week, leaving them to reflect on their recent performances.

The early minutes saw Kaizer Chiefs dominating possession, pressing SuperSport United into their half but struggling to penetrate the solid defensive line set up by the Tshwane team. SuperSport United, led by coach Gavin Hunt, appeared sluggish, taking time to find their rhythm in the game.

The deadlock was broken in the 19th minute when Christian Saile put Amakhosi ahead, capitalizing on a loose ball inside the box to score after a quick counter-attack. The goal marked a significant moment, providing Chiefs the upper hand early in the game.

Despite SuperSport trying to claw their way back into the match with a few scoring chances, Chiefs’ defense held firm. However, the game took a dramatic turn early in the second half when SuperSport United was awarded a penalty. Terrence Dzvukamanja stepped up to the challenge, slotting the ball past the goalkeeper, bringing the score level.

As the match progressed, Kaizer Chiefs intensified their search for a winner, maintaining pressure on the SuperSport defense. Their efforts were rewarded when Shabalala, seizing on a pass from Saile, found the net with a precise shot, sealing the victory for Kaizer Chiefs.

The final whistle marked a significant turn in fortunes for the Glamour Boys, securing their place back in the top 8. For SuperSport United, the defeat serves as a reminder of the competitiveness of the DStv Premiership and the need for improvement.


  • Kaizer Chiefs played a strategic game, with notable performances from Bvuma, Solomons, and Shabalala. Substitutions in the second half, including Frosler and Vilakazi, added fresh legs, helping Chiefs maintain their lead till the end.
  • SuperSport United saw some tactical shifts, with Dzvukamanja coming off the bench to score. The team struggled to create significant chances towards the end, ultimately succumbing to Chiefs’ relentless attacks.

This match not only rekindles hope for Kaizer Chiefs in their quest for Premiership glory but also underscores the unpredictable nature of football, where fortunes can change in the blink of an eye. As the DStv Premiership season progresses, fans will be keenly watching to see if Amakhosi can build on this victory to mount a serious challenge for the title.
