The once mighty Amakhosi will host Orlando Pirates at FNB stadium on Saturday in another edition of the Soweto derby.
Going into this game, all is not well at Naturena, following last weekend’s defeat to Arrows, which saw Amakhosi faithful booing their beloved team off the pitch and calling for coach Arthur Zwane’s head to roll.
That has led to a lot of football fans not giving Arthur Zwane’s men any hopes of beating the inform Amabhakaniya.
But Amakhosi faithful need not to stress much, as they will be all smiles come the end of the match on Saturday, and here are the reasons why:
Amakhosi want it more!
When you have hit rock bottom, the only way to go is up!
Right now Amakhosi have their backs against the wall, they can’t go lower than they are at the moment.
The Soweto derby gives them a perfect opportunity to appease their supporters.
Expect them to dig deep and come out firing from all cylinders on Saturday.
They have it within themselves to rise up and upset their arch rivals, as they proved the last time the two sides locked horns, with Yusuf Maart scoring a wonder goal.
Nothing can stop Chiefs from doing it again.
The head-to-head factor.
Kaizer Chiefs have won four of the last five encounters against their bitter rivals.
This means they have been having the upper hand over Bucs, despite their bad fortunes in recent times. When they play Orlando Pirates, they always find motivation to perform above themselves.
This should inspire them to pull another great victory from the depths of the dark cloud engulfing them at the moment.
The unpredictable nature of the Soweto derby.
South Africa’s biggest soccer game has no regard for current form, it’s a different beast altogether, that behaves according to its own rules.
That means Amakhosi will not have to worry about their performance last weekend. The Soweto derby gives them a clean slate to turn their fortunes around and rewrite their story for the remainder of the season.
