- Steve Lekoelea has predicted a stunning upset for First Division side, TS Galaxy, in Saturday’s Nedbank Cup clash against Kaizer Chiefs
- The former Orlando Pirates icon insists his sentiments aren’t based on bias, but due to the form of the 2 teams
- Chiefs have only won 1 in their last 7 matches and Lekoelea likens them to the Buccaneers in taking a while to recover from a loss
Briefly.co.za earlier reported on former Bafana Bafana skipper Lucas Radebe’s concerns for Kaizer Chiefs in their contest against TS Galaxy on Saturday.
The two sides meet at Moses Mabhida Stadium in the Nedbank Cup final.
Former Orlando Pirates star, Steve Lekoelea, has now also thrown his weight behind the First Division side as he predicted an upset.
Lekoelea insisted that his prediction is not due to bias due to his former allegiance to the Buccaneers.
TimesLIVE reported that his prediction is based on the form of Chiefs and the brand of football played by TS Galaxy.
Lekoelea said, “I see an upset … maybe first half draw and maybe 1-0 in 90 minutes to TS Galaxy.”
Chiefs’ form saw them only winning once in their last seven matches, which saw them plummeting to ninth on the PSL log.
Lekoelea likened Chiefs to Pirates when it comes to recovering from a loss.
He said, “Pirates and Chiefs are the same‚ because when they lose the match before they play a final‚ they can’t come back at the same time.”
