First and foremost, here is one thing to remember, SuperSport United coach Gavin Hunt was sacked by the Soweto giants in 2021 and he will be out to prove a point against his former employers.

Matsatsantsa are currently in fine form, winning two DStv Premiership matches in a row following a bad start to the new season.
On the other hand, Arthur Zwane‘s side sits just above the relegation zone and are seeking to bounce back after a slow start too.

THREE THINGS CHIEFS SHOULD DO TO AVOID A FALL
- Don’t allow the wingers to run behind defence
Hunt has found the new strategy of attacking with his quick wingers – Iqraam Rayners, Thapelo Maseko and Ghampani Lungu – who waste no time in bringing in dangerous crosses seeking target men Bradley Grobler or Thamsanqa Gabuza.
They have already hurt Mamelodi Sundowns and Maritzburg United with this approach.

- Cut the supply of long balls to the sides
Hunt is well known for his long-ball approach and it works for him.
When the Swanky Boys win the ball at the back, short passes take too long to get the ball to the wings, hence you’ll see a lot of long passes. For the Glamour Boys, to cut this supply, they have to press the defenders.
However, if it’s the SuperSport United goalkeeper who has the ball, Kaizer Chiefs have to close the spaces quickly.

- Don’t keep the ball too much at the back
As much as Hunt’s side prefers to stay in their own half and watch you play sideways, they can take the advantage of you when you’re too comfortable on the ball at the back.
They have a quick front three and when they start pressing, they can force you to commit errors and that is Chiefs’ weakness nowadays.
