Team Lineup News
Due to injuries, two key players for the Chiefs this season, Keagan Dolly and Edmilson Dove, are both expected to miss the game.
Dove has been a motivating leader on the pitch and a goal-scoring creative, while Dolly has been a crucial component of how coach Arthur Zwane’s squad plays because he initiates some of their assaults.
Dove’s long ball led to Olisa Ndah’s own goal in the most recent Soweto Derby game in February of this year. The Mozambican star’s passing ability will be missed by the Chiefs.
Both clubs have strong squads and will strive to perform at their highest level throughout the match despite these injury worries. The game between the two largest football clubs in South Africa promises to be interesting.
One of the Chiefs’ main weaknesses was recently exposed after they let goals from dead-ball situations in three of their last four games.

Kids break down under stress: Daniel Cardoso, a former Chiefs defender, issued a warning two weeks ago that the Glamour Boys are unlikely to win big championships while playing young players and that these players frequently falter when playing in front of a large audience.
This was made clear on April 23 when Amakhosi lost against Cardoso’s current team, Sekhukhune United. The largest stage in local football will be used to watch players like Samkelo Zwane and Wandile Duba play against Pirates in front of close to 90,000 spectators.
Riveiro should put up a strong team: Zwane was able to outperform Jose Riveiro of the Pirates, who should now be more ready for the counter-attacking style of play of the Chiefs.
Sandile Mthethwa and Thabiso Monyane have gradually joined the team in recent weeks thanks to Riveiro. Ashley du Preez and Christian Saile, two nimble attackers for Amakhosi, ought to be manageable for the quick defenders.
Additionally, Dzvukamanja and Monnapule Saleng have teamed up to form a lethal assault for Bucs, scoring nine goals between them since the most recent Soweto Derby match. They’ll be prepared to tear weak Amakhosi apart.
