The Kaizer Chiefs are set to face off against Baroka on Saturday. This match is crucial as the Mamelodi Sundowns are also facing the Black Leopards today.
A single goal separates the two teams and whoever plays the best today has a chance to take the trophy. There is a lot at stake today as two teams compete against each other in separate matches.
Briefly.co.za reported that Social media has been gripped with hype at the match today with a clear favourite among supporters with #PrayForKaizerChiefs trending.
Here is what Mzansi had to say about the titanic match today:
Earlier, Briefly.co.za reported that L’vovo has joined the call of many Kaizer Chiefs fans in asking Ernst Middendorp to step aside next season.
This comes after a string of defeats which almost compromised the team’s top position on the log. L’vovo recorded a video pleading with Bobby Motaung to release the “old man” - referring to Middendorp.
The footage was met with agreement from fans and amusement from those who support rival teams.
In other news, Mamelodi Sundowns, Pitso Mosimane, is at the centre of tweets from soccer fans calling him a hypocrite. This after complaining about Boroka FC allegedly employing "time-wasting'' tactics in the game between the two teams this Sunday evening.
Pitso told SuperSport after the game that Boroka goalkeeper, Ayanda Dlamini, had been delaying the game tactics, something he claims the team is good at.
“Ja, but this one was a different one. They have got Elvis Chipezeze who was a master of sitting, of killing the game. This one I don’t know his name, I think Baroka they breed them hey.
“They breed these ones who don’t allow the play to go (on). But its okay, they have to do what they have to do to survive. It’s okay. It’s not what made us lose. What made us lose is not marking in the box. But we keep going this thing has a heartbeat. It’s still going. We’ll see how it goes."
