Kaizer Chiefs are back in action in the PSL on Tuesday night when they host Black Leopards and while it may be early days you get the feeling that 3 points for Chiefs is crucial if they are to stay in touch with the title race.
Kaizer Chiefs were in action in the Champions League on the weekend playing to a goalless draw at home to Bamenda having beaten the same side on the road less than a week before.
Chiefs have struggled at the start of this PSL season winning just 1 of their opening 5 matches with 2 draws and 2 losses. Their last PSL match was away at Swallows where they lost 1-0 and their home games have been a goalless draw against Galaxy and a 3-0 defeat to Sundowns. Chiefs matches this season have averaged 1.8 goals each with under 2.5 goal backers collecting in 3 of the 5 games.
Black Leopards are on 3 points after 5 matches with 1 win and 4 draws. That win came at home against Maritzburg United in their penultimate start and last time out they lost 1-0 away at Bloem Celtic and the other away games have seen defeats to AmaZulu and SuperSport, both by 2-0 margins. They have conceded 4 goals for every 1 they have scored this season and their matches average 2 goals each in total with 4 of the 5 games having 2 goals or less in them.
Chiefs edged this fixture 1-0 last season.

Kaizer Chiefs 11/20
Black Leopards 23/4
Suggested Bet: Correct Score: 1-0 at 39/10
It is hard to back Chiefs with any confidence at the moment but they should win this game and I am looking for them to make it 3 home wins by 1-0 in a row against Leopards. Another option I like is Chiefs to win by 1 goal exactly at 47/20 and if you fancy this one rather look for the Handicap and back Chiefs -1 the draw.
