Chiefs & AmaZulu Starting XIs Announced

Kaizer Chiefs and AmaZulu FC have announced their starting line-ups for this evening’s DStv Premiership encounter at FNB Stadium.

Both teams are still seeking their first win of the 2023/24 DStv Premiership campaign, with Amakhosi yet to register a league victory this season after losing two and drawing one in the opening three matches.

Molefe Ntseki’s side will have to dig deep this time around when they a face stubborn Usuthu, whom themselves are desperate to get their first win. Chiefs have struggled this season but managed to book a spot in the MTN8 semi-finals.

AmaZulu haven’t scored a single goal in the campaign so far, having played three goalless draws. New coach Pablo Franco Martin has been asking for a new striker and it is evident that he needs more firepower as they are yet to score.

The KwaZulu-Natal-based side are unbeaten in seven direct clashes, winning two and drawing five.

Here is how they line up:

Chiefs XI: Petersen, Hlanti, Dithlokwe, Msimango, Kwinika, Maart, Castillo, Mdantsane, Mmodi, Du Preez, Potsane.

Subs: Khune, Nj. Ngcobo, Shabalala, Mashiane, Solomons, Radebe, Saile, Matlou, Zwane

AmaZulu XI: Mothwa, Gumede, Hanamub, Mobara, Mphahlele, Malepe, Brooks, Jooste, Moremi, Ngema, Ntuli

Subs: Mzimela, Mabiliso, Zulu, Hlangabeza, Maluleka, Ndlovu, Ekstein, Letsoalo, Kwem
