Simba vs Kaizer Chiefs Predictions
Simba need a miracle to progress in this tie with a 4-0 first leg deficit. They are 12 home matches unbeaten in the CAF Champions League and have what it takes to win the match.
Kaizer Chiefs have enough firepower to score, which means Simba needs to score six. I am tipping a home win but Chiefs to progress.
- Simba have won 5 of their last 6 matches (all competitions).
- Simba have won 8 of their last 12 home matches (four draws)(CAF Champions League).
- Kaizer Chiefs have won 0 of their last 3 away matches (one loss, two draws)(CAF Champions League).
- Kaizer Chiefs have seen BTTS Yes in 12 of their last 13 matches (Premier Soccer League).
Head to Head
There has only been one previous meeting between these sides as Kaizer Chiefs won 4-0 in the first leg of tie a week ago.
Simba were in great form going into the first leg with one defeat in 18 matches in all competitions and sitting top of the Tanzanian Premier League. They reached the CAF Champions League quarter-finals by topping their group which included a 1-0 win against holder Al Ahly.
After losing 1-0 at Al Ahly in a dead rubber group match, Simba won five league matches in a row with only one goal conceded. Their last league match was a 3-1 home victory against Dodoma Jiji some three weeks ago.
In their last match, Simba were thrashed 4-0 at Kaizer Chiefs in the first leg. They conceded three goals from headers as they struggled to deal with Amakhosi’s direct football.
Simba Team News
Simba coach Didier Gomes has an injury doubt over winger Bernard Morrison for this match. If fit, he is expected to start.
One possible change in central midfield could see Meddie Kagere start in place of Jonas Mkude.
Kaizer Chiefs Form
Chiefs went into the first leg last weekend on a run of one win in nine matches before beating Simba 4-0. They sit 10th in the PSL table and still need one point from their final two matches to be safe from relegation.
After a 2-1 to Cape Town City, Chiefs beat Mamelodi Sundowns 2-1 after a fine comeback before a 1-0 loss to Chippa United. Chiefs then drew at Bloemfontein Celtic before losing 2-1 at TTM and drawing 1-1 with Swallows.
In their last match, Chiefs beat Simba 4-0 in the first leg as they battered them with crosses, set plays and long balls. Samir Nurkovic scored twice and Leonardo Castro and Erick Mathoho got one each.
Kaizer Chiefs Team News
Kaizer Chiefs remain without forward Khama Billiat due to a leg injury. Dumisani Zuma went off injured in the first leg so Leonardo Castro could partner Samir Nurkovic from the start.
Itumeleng Khune has an arm injury in goal so Bruce Bvuma in expected to get the nod once again in preference to Daniel Akpeyi.
