half time : Chippa United 0-0 Kaizer Chiefs
Date: 06 November 2019
Venue: Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium
It’s been a lively affair at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium, although Kaizer Chiefs and Chippa United are goalless at the halftime break.
Ernst Middendorp rang the changes following the penalty shoot-out victory over Orlando Pirates, as Bruce Bvuma, Lazarous Kambole, Bernard Parker, Philani Zulu and Kgotso Moleko earned starts, while Khama Billiat missed out completely.
Both sides played 120 minutes in Telkom Knockout over the weekend, but it was the Chilli Boys who came out the blocks much quicker as Slias Maziya and Boikanyo Komane went close to scoring in the opening 15 minutes.
Chiefs had to wait until the 27th minute for a clear-cut opening when Siyabonga Ngezana rose well to meet a corner, but the defender’s header sailed over the crossbar from six-yards out.
Chippa started the half brightly, but they suffered a blow just before the halftime break as Frederic Nsabiyumva and Komane were both substituted due to injury, with Gregory Damons and Kurt Lentjies brought on as replacements.
Here’s how they lined up:
