The South African Premier Soccer League is back in action this week as Kaizer Chiefs take on TTM at the FNB Stadium on Tuesday. Both teams have struggled this season and need a victory in this game.

TTM are currently in 15th place in the league standings and are dangerously close to the bottom of the table at the moment. The away side slumped to a 1-0 defeat against Golden Arrows last week and cannot afford to drop points in this game.

Kaizer Chiefs, on the other hand, have staged a recovery after a shocking start to their season and are currently in eighth place in the South African Premier Division. The Chiefs have managed two victories on the trot and will want to build on their progress this week.


Kaizer Chiefs vs TTM Head-to-Head

TTM are playing their first season in South Africa's top-flight and have never played an official fixture against Kaizer Chiefs. The home side has been impressive at times this season and will want to get their record against the Glamour Boys off to a positive start.

Kaizer Chiefs will back themselves against the newly-promoted side and will view this game as an opportunity to get their season back on track. TTM have good players in their ranks and will want to pull off an upset this week.
