Kaizer Chiefs v TS Galaxy, Nedbank Cup Final Preview


Kaizer Chiefs will be looking to salvage their season when they play TS Galaxy in Durban in Saturday’s Nedbank Cup Final.  We take a look at the game from a betting angle.

Kaizer Chiefs has an incredibly disappointing League campaign finishing outside the top 8.  Their fans will settle for nothing less than victory here, but they haven’t things all their own way in this Tournament.  They battled past Lower League Tornado FC and The Magic on the extra time in the first two rounds before turning in probably their best performance in beating Cape Town City 2-0 and they followed that up with a 4-2 away win over Chippa United in the semis.

TS Galaxy ply their trade in the first division and they finished up 8th on the log with just one draw and 3 losses in their last 4 starts.  I am hoping for their sakes that one eye was on this final against Chiefs and they have been impressive to this point beating Ajax 5-2 in their opening game before 4 successive away victories including beating the PSL side Golden Arrows 3-1 in extra time in their semi-final.

There is no head-to-head form between the sides.

Kaizer Chiefs 1/4

Draw 4/1

TS Galaxy 12/1

Suggested bet:  Handicap, Kaizer Chiefs (-1), the draw at 22/10

Chiefs don’t look like a side who is going to rip through anyone and Galaxy will certainly be motivated for this. I am backing Chiefs to win this game by 1 goal exactly.
