When the two teams clash in the last PSL game of the season, the place for MTN8 next season will be at stake
TS Galaxy and Kaizer Chiefs will meet between the two teams on Saturday, hoping to win the top eight in this season’s PSL.
The two teams are ranked eighth and ninth in the league standings respectively. The Galaxy leads the Chiefs by 3 points, but the goal difference between the two teams is the same (-4).
The state of the Galaxy has been improving as they remained unbeaten in the two games they defeated the Orlando Pirates 1-0 last weekend.
On Wednesday, the Rockets will face the rejuvenating Chiefs, who ended their five winless games in the league after defeating the Lamontville Golden Arrows 3-2 on Wednesday.
Amakhosi is eager to avoid failing to enter the top eight for the fourth time in the PSL era, while the Rockets hope to enter the first half in their first season in the Elite League.

Squad and team news
Due to the suspension of left-back Ibrahim Saidat and club captain Jiwen Msimango, the Galaxy team will lack two influential players when facing Amakosi.
Coach Irving Dagama is likely to bring in center-back Gerard Modisane and left-back David Materara as substitutes because he hopes to plan a game to defeat the attractive boys.
The 2005/06 PSL Coach of the Year will focus on Masilake Phohlongo. He tends to improve his game level in large-scale competitions. He scored two goals against the Pirates this semester, including the winning goal for the Galaxy.
On the other hand, the Chiefs will not have their club captain Ramahlwe Mphahlele, who has been suspended, while the attackers Dumisani Zuma and Khama Billiat are still missing due to injuries.
Local football legends Arthur Zwann and Dillon Shepard, after they started their lives as interim coaches and defeated the Arrows, could name a constant team for their conflict with the Rockets.
The four-time PSL champion will hope that experienced attacker Lebogang Manyama won the top eight. His hat-trick inspired Amakhosi to defeat Abafana Bes’thende in the middle of the week.
In the head-to-head statistics, the Galaxy and the Chiefs only met in a top league.
The two teams drew 0-0 in the PSL match at the iconic FNB Stadium in November 2020.
The Galaxy has accumulated 20 points in 14 home games this season, and they defeated the Pirates 1-0 in their final host game on May 30.
Although the Chiefs have accumulated 17 points in 14 away games this season, they lost 2-1 to the Panthers in their final away game on May 26.
This will be the third clash between the two teams. The Galaxy defeated the Chiefs 1-0 in the Durbank Cup final in 2019.
