How will Baroka stop Castro and Billiat?

It hasn’t taken long for Kaizer Chiefs attackers Leonardo Castro and Khama Billiat to revive the partnership they formed at Mamelodi Sundowns.
The signs were there during pre-season that the pair would be a nightmare for defenders when they combined for a Castro goal in the Maize Cup against Free State Stars.
The season is well underway and they have both created goals for one another. Billiat created Castro’s goal in Amakhosi’s 3-1 defeat to Bidvest Wits last week and the Colombian striker returned the favour when he played the Zimbabwean through for a first Chiefs goal in the 3-0 MTN8 win over Ea Lla Koto over the weekend.
Next on the schedule for Amakhosi is Baroka, who should be worried about facing the deadly duo.
Bakgaga have already been punished by Castro, last season in the Colombian’s debut match for the Soweto giants at Peter Mokaba Stadium. He will no doubt be looking to build on his good start in front of goal against a Baroka side still trying to find its feet under the guidance of coach Wedson Nyirenda, who happens to be a former Amakhosi player.
One thing’s for sure, Baroka defenders will have their hands full trying to tame the two players this evening at Peter Mokaba Stadium (19h30).
