The Premiership fixtures resume on Tuesday night, with the KZN Derby at Harry Gwala Stadium just one of many intriguing fixtures.
Maritzburg United vs AmaZulu
The two League clashes between this two sides ended in draws last season and I don't think this season will be an exception. On paper, both teams are matched in all departments.
Chippa United vs Free State Stars
The Play-Offs were in some way a hindrance to Chippa's plans, because they had little time to put together a competitive team. Now some of their foreign players are still awaiting work permits, so they aren't at full strength. However, they are playing at home and they may get a point at least.
Golden Arrows vs University of Pretoria
I don't think Tuks have made astute signings if you consider the fact that some of their new men weren't regulars at their previous clubs, so they may take time to get going. Arrows, on the other hand, didn't look bad when they lost 2-1 to Orlando Pirates in their first League match and playing at home gives them an edge over the newcomers.
Prediction: Arrows win
SuperSport United vs Orlando Pirates
This will be another tight affair with the teams set to play each other for the third time in a row on Saturday in the second leg of the MTN8 semi-finals. So with that in mind, you could well expect the two teams to tread carefully for fear of suspensions and injuries ahead of the big clash on the weekend.
Kaizer Chiefs vs Mamelodi Sundowns
No-one will forget the 4-1 drubbing in a hurry, but I think Sundowns are facing a resurgent Chiefs side. Chiefs are capable of beating Sundowns this time around.
Prediction: Chiefs win
Moroka Swallows vs Ajax Cape Town
The truth is Ajax are not good travelers, especially to Gauteng ... Ajax only beat one Gauteng team – Mamelodi Sundowns – away from home last season and Swallows rarely lose in their own backyard.
Prediction: Swallows win
Bloemfontein Celtic vs Platinum Stars
Celtic have already lost two matches this season – one in the MTN8 and the other in the League, but they really are a difficult side to beat at home. They lost two League matches at home last season and the first was against Platinum Stars, but this is Celtic's opportunity to redeem themselves after faltering in their two matches this season.
Prediction: Celtic win
Bidvest Wits vs Black Leopards
Wits have obviously bolstered their squad with some big games, but Leopards aren't weak opposition especially in comparison to last season. I think Wits are still trying to find a winning combination, while Leopards can claim to have maintained some continuity. I expect a stalemate.
