STATS: Wits v Chiefs


Kaizer Chiefs meet Bidvest Wits on Sunday at FNB Stadium looking to regain their momentum in the title race.

Under Gavin Hunt, the ‘Students’ have beaten Chiefs just three times in the league (Drew 4 Lost 6).

Chiefs have been top of the league without any interruption for 340 days, but could finally be dethroned if they lose and Sundowns win in the penultimate week of the PSL.

Golden Boot contender Nurkovic is available again for ‘Amakhosi’, only to face the best defence in the league.

20 – Wits have conceded 20 goals in the league this season, the fewest of all teams.

Celtic v Polokwane

Bloemfontein Celtic breached the 40 goal mark during the week, becoming just the second side this season to do so, after Chiefs. It is also the first time since 1999/2000 when the league was played over 34 games that ‘Siwelele’ have scored 40+ goals in the league.

They will beat their all-time PSL record if they can score seven goals in their last three games. On the other hand:

1 – Polokwane City have kept one clean sheet in their last 22 league games, a record stretching back to December 2019.

Sundowns v Baroka

Baroka play the current Top 3 in their final three games, and they need to find some points somewhere to have a fighting chance of survival.

The first of those three games is against Sundowns on Sunday, who are in confident mood following two successive wins. Both wins were via 1-0 score lines, but their impact on the title race may be monumental.

0 – Under Pitso Mosimane, Sundowns have never lost a league game to Baroka (Won 4 Drew 3).
