JOHANNESBURG – Having been hot on each other’s heels in the last five seasons of the MultiChoice Diski Challenge, Kaizer Chiefs and Mamelodi Sundowns reserves will be hoping to get back to winning ways when they square-off this Sunday.
In the reserve league, since its inception six years ago, there’s only few teams in the 16-team league that go toe-to-toe with each other like Chiefs and Sundowns have done in the past.
Downs, after four successive defeats in the opening matches during the 2017/18 season, got back to winning ways by waking up against Chiefs in a sold-out affair in Ekurhuleni.
In that encounter, Amakhosi went into the break sitting on a 2-1 lead, but second half substitute Keletso Makgalwa produced a mesmeric performance that overturned the deficit, ensuring the Brazilians were 3-2 victors.
But coach Arthur Zwane’s troops got their vengeance through a 3-1 victory in the inaugural final of the MultiChoice Diski Shield early last year.
