Kaizer Chiefs v Chippa United betting tips, prediction & odds; ABSA Premiership preview
Welcome to our Kaizer Chiefs v Chippa United betting tips, prediction & odds update ahead of their PSL clash on Wednesday.
ABSA Premiership table toppers Kaizer Chiefs will face off against 12th-placed Chippa United at the Orlando Stadium at 6pm (CAT). The Chiefs are paying $1.45 to win in the betting, with Chippa United ($5.75) not expected to trouble them. The draw is paying $3.05.
Though Chiefs lead the standings, they enter the contest in poor form and on the back of two successive defeats. Ernst Middendorp’s men have Baroka FC to thank. Had Bakgakga not upset Sundowns on Sunday, they would have relinquished top spot on the league standings to Pitso Mosimane’s men.
Chiefs have won just one out of their past six league games with the sole victory in that time having been a 3-2 victory over Polokwane City. After having dominated the league during the first half of the season, Middendorp’s side appears to be all over the place since the league’s restart.
Chippa United are not in good form themselves. They claimed a 1-1 draw in their last game against Stellenbosch FC on Friday and have won two out of their last six games in the league (against Baroka and struggling AmaZulu). Chiefs will have good memories of playing against the Chilli Boys. They won the reverse fixture 2-0 in November as Dumisani Zuma notched a brace.
Chippa are five points clear of 15th-placed Black Leopards who occupy the relegation play-off position and they are probably safe from the drop for this season. This may mean that Chiefs will have somewhat of a psychological advantage.
With that being said, Chiefs cannot afford to underestimate their opposition. They appear to not have big match temperament. That is something which Mosimane’s Sundowns possess after having dominated the Absa Premiership in recent seasons. Chippa are a team that is difficult to break down. While they have won just two out of their past six games, they have not conceded more than one goal in each of their games.
Chiefs’ finishing has been woeful recently and if Middendorp’s charges do not up their game, they could be in for yet another night of frustration.
Kaizer Chiefs v Chippa United injury report
Chiefs’ first-choice goalkeeper Daniel Akpeyi suffered a concussion whilst playing against Bidvest Wits on Sunday and has been ruled out of his side’s next two matches, as per the club’s official Twitter account.
This means that Middendorp will have to select either Bruce Bvuma or veteran Itumeleng Khune to start in goal. Whilst Bvuma is considered to currently have better reflexes by many, die-hard Chiefs fans want to see the vastly experienced Khune. who has been there and done. that start the game.

Kaizer Chiefs v Chippa United tips
The league leaders are heavy favourites in the Kaizer Chiefs v Chippa United betting, but we have managed to find some value tips.
First-half correct score betting
We think the Chiefs are primed to score in the first half and then shut up shop for the game. Chippa United have struggled to score in recent outings and we can’t see that changing here. Their defence has stood firm, however, and should be able to restrict their opponent to just the one first-half goal. This option is paying $1.85 with Hollywood Bets.
Kaizer Chiefs v Chippa United match prediction? 2/9/2020
Even though the Chilli Boys are not easy to break down and Chiefs have been struggling lately, the Amakhosi’s barren run surely has to come to an end at some point. On paper, Chiefs do have a better team. One can expect the men from Naturena to grind out a 1-0 win over their counterparts. As the Chiefs are not in strong form, there is a good chance that they will play a conservative brand of football should they end up scoring early. Our final Kaizer Chiefs v Chipper United prediction? Chiefs 1-0.
