ABSA Premiership action resumes on Tuesday after a four-month break due to Covid-19, with some appetising clashes on the cards.

The battle for top spot resumes as Kaizer Chiefs will be hoping to maintain their lead at the top, with closest followers, Mamelodi Sundowns hot on their heels.

AmaSandawana who will get the ball rolling against fellow championship contender and fourth placed Orlando Pirates this Tuesday trail Amakhosi by 4 points, although with a game in hand.
Wednesday is set to see the battle of the Zimbabwean marksmen as Khama Billiat’s Kaizer Chiefs take on Terrence Dzukamanja’s Bidvest Wits at the Orlando Stadium.

Dzukamanja was on terrific form despite being on the losing end as his double could not help his side progress in the Nedbank Cup when they were deposed by the Brazilians, Mamelodi Sundowns.

Friday will see former FC Platinum defender Kelvin Moyo’s Chippa United squaring off against Cape Town City in what will be a relegation zone escape mission for both sides as they are only 4 points away from the drop zone.

Highlands Park needs to bring their best form and experience as the Tapuwa Kapini captained outfit takes on a super charged Mamelodi Sundowns in Friday’s late encounter.

Saturday sees Zimbabwean players in opposing dugouts as Ovidy Karuru’s Stellenbosch hosts Amazulu who are home to Knox Mutizwa, Divine Lunga, Danny ‘Deco’ Phiri and Edmore ‘ZiKepeer’ Sibanda.

Baroka captain Elvis Chipezeze will have to bring his safest pair of gloves if they are to avoid a difficult relegation fight with the season drawing to a close as they visit Amazulu in what is set to be a thriller considering they are both hanging by a thread in the top flight.
Gauteng was selected as the preferred location for the bio-bubble as action resumes in the 2019/20 season.

The Premier Soccer League (PSL) also confirmed that a moment of silence will be observed ahead of kick-off for those who lost their lives to the Covid-19 pandemic.
