- Kaizer Chiefs need nothing short of a miracle if they want to bag the trophy this season
- This after the team suffered an embarrassing loss 3-0 loss against Orlando Pirates
- Kaizer Chiefs failed to back the trophy for five long years and if they fail to score 4 goals in their next match, it may become six
Kaizer Chiefs seem to be suffering a long trophy drought. It has been five years since they last had a taste of victory and with the way things are looking now, the team may just add another year to their long wait.
Last weekend the team suffered an embarrassing defeat against Orlando Pirates during an MTN8 semifinal first leg match at the Orlando Stadium. While they had a few good chances to make a comeback during the game, their efforts were not enough. A disappointed Hunt had this to say:
“We will try to win the game. That’s the most important thing to do. That will be the most important thing.
Those two big chances we had before they scored, we could have made it 2-0, then it would have been a different game,” Hunt said. “But it is what it is. We will dust ourselves off and go again.”
They do however have a chance at securing the trophy - if they manage to score 4 goals at the next leg of the game which will take place next weekend at the FNB stadium. While it is possible, it will certainly be a difficult feat to achieve.
Last weekend Briefly.co.za reported, the Orlando Pirates have defeated the Kaizer Chiefs, walking away with a 3-0 victory at Orlando Stadium on Saturday in the initial stages of the MTN8 semifinal.
Josef Zinnbauer's team seemed to click and worked together as a team and outplayed the chiefs. This is the second 0-3 defeat that the Chiefs have suffered in as many weeks after losing to Mamelodi Sundowns.
Zinnbauer is still working on his team, he made six changes to his lineup before Saturday's match, he seemed to have improved on his combinations after the stunning victory. The match was highly anticipated, it being the first Soweto Derby in a closed stadium due to Covid-19 social distancing measures.
