Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs will look to dent the Absa Premiership title hopes of Bidvest Wits when the teams meet at Cape Town Stadium.

Chief recorded their sixth draw of the season (the most of any team) when they were held 1-1 at Maritzburg United on November 21.

The Soweto side has claimed 10 points from five home matches this season.

The Amakhosi are placed fourth on the Absa Premiership log with 18 points from 11 matches.

Wits claimed their eighth win of the season, and a third in succession, when they defeated Golden Arrows 3-2 at home on November 21.

The Johannesburg side has claimed 10 points from five away matches this season.

The Clever Boys are placed first on the Absa Premiership log with 26 points from 11 matches.

In head-to-head stats, Chiefs and Wits have met in 58 league matches since 1985.

The Amakhosi have 28 wins compared to 11 for the Clever Boys, while 19 matches have been drawn.

Chiefs have won 11 of their 28 home matches against Wits, suffering nine defeats in the process.

The Amakhosi beat the Clever Boys 3-0 away last season, but lost 2-1 at home in the return game.

These teams have played to just one goalless stalemate in their last 21 league meetings.

Kick-off is at 18:00 on Saturday, December 19.
