Kaizer Chiefs’s pressing game has proven too much for their opponents and Cape Town City can attest to this after their 3-0 defeat to Amakhosi at FNB Stadium on Sunday afternoon.
From the first minute, Chiefs’s attack is relentless and it helps their cause that they have Leonardo Castro and Samir Nurkovic upfront, who are two workhorses that keep the defenders on their toes.
Not only are Chiefs relentless moving forward, but their PSL opponents still haven’t picked up that Chiefs’s strength lies on set pieces.
The three goals scored by Chiefs were all headers coming from set pieces.
Highlands Park also fell victim to the same game when they were also beaten by the same scoreline at the same venue during the week.
Pitso Mosimane of Mamelodi Sundowns when he pointed out some months ago that Chiefs are a real fighting team compared to last season.
“The difference with Kaizer Chiefs is that they have more spirit now; they have more fight, they pack a good fight, we have to be honest,” said Mosimane in October.
If Chiefs continue to show the same fighting spirit, they could well end their trophy drought that has gone on for a few seasons now.
