Kaizer Chiefs will look to extend their unbeaten run in the Absa Premiership when they host Baroka FC at FNB Stadium on 6 April 2019, kick-off at 18h00.
Chiefs have gone five league matches without defeat after holding SuperSport United 1-1 away from home on March 15. The Soweto giants have racked up nine draws this season.
The Amakhosi have claimed 18 points from 12 home matches this season, with their last result as hosts a 1-0 win over Maritzburg United in early March.
Baroka suffered a third successive loss when they were beaten 1-0 at home by Golden Arrows on March 13. The Limpopo side has claimed just one win in their last nine matches.
Bakgaga have claimed 12 points from as many away matches this season, with their last result on the road a 2-1 loss at Highlands Park on March 9.
In head-to-head stats, Baroka and Chiefs have met in five league matches since 2016/17. The teams have a dead-even record: one win apiece, three draws and six goals scored each. Amakhosi have yet to win a home game in the rivalry, with one draw and one defeat from their two turns as hosts.
When the teams met earlier this season, at the Peter Mokaba Stadium in August 2018, they played out a 1-1 draw, with an own goal from Daniel Cardoso cancelled out by a strike from Siphiwe Tshabalala.
Chiefs’ line-up from their 1-1 draw with SuperSport on March 15: Bvuma, Mphahlele, Moleko, Cardoso, Ntiya-Ntiya (Hadebe 64'), Katsande, Maluleka, Ngcobo (Zulu 76'), Billiat, Parker, Castro (Moon 82').
