Kaizer Chiefs and Baroka FC registered victories on match-day two of the 2020/21 DStv Premiership season on Tuesday night.

The late own-goal handed Chiefs a narrow 1-0 win over Chippa in a match which was dominated by coach Gavin Hunt’s side.
Meanwhile, Baroka defeated their Limpopo rivals Black Leopards in a four-goal thriller which was played at the Thohoyandou Stadium.
Bakgaga Ba Mphahlele opened the scoring through Richard Mbulu, who made it 1-0 to the visitors just a minute into the match.
The visitors doubled their lead in the 33rd minute when Evidence Makgopa netted with header to make it 2-0 to Baroka.
Mbulu then completed his brace in the 44rd minute to make it 3-0 and it was also his third goal of the new season.
Phelelani Shozi netted an own-goal to make it 3-1 after Leopards piled pressure on the Baroka defence 15 minutes into the second-half.
However, Baroka contained Leopards in the remaining minutes of the match and ultimately, they emerged 3-1 winners on the night.
