JOHANNESBURG. – The Soweto giants Kaizer Chiefs, and the Tshwane-based Mamelodi Sundowns are set to lock horns this weekend in the Gauteng Development League in what will be a season-defining clash in the u19 division.
Kaizer Chiefs are five games away from wrapping up their u19 division of the GDL, and sitting at second-place on the log, every fixture is a massive opportunity to finish the season on a high.
Their Tshwane rivals, the prolific Mamelodi Sundowns, are placed third and have seven games left in their GDL campaign.
The two clubs will meet this weekend with Kaizer Chiefs playing hosts and fireworks are anticipated as the league draws a step closer to its conclusion.
A defeat to Chiefs this weekend could put an end to their title hopes, while Sundowns will be relying on their remaining games to further make a case for a top-seat in the league.
Sitting at the top, nine-points clear of Chiefs, Highlands Park will welcome Randburg AFC at the Balfour Alexandra Football Club on Saturday, while the School of Excellence will travel north to face TS Galaxy.
TS Galaxy, currently sitting at sixth-place on the log, are fresh from a monumental upset of Supersport United last weekend where Galaxy’s solitary goal in the match was enough to earn them three points away from home.
