Johannesburg (AFP) – Kaizer Chiefs is one of the two top half clubs to win the South African Premiership this weekend, winning 1-0 at Maritzburg United with Bernard Parker’s goal.

Only 11 games were played in 8 games on Saturday and Sunday, and there were few goals, 7 of which were 2 games.

The champion won R15 million ($ 955,000 / € 845,000) while the top eight teams in Africa’s wealthiest leagues struggled, while third of the bottom five won on Matchday 11. I did.

Short corners and crosses allowed the former International Parker to pass powerfully through German goalkeeper Marcel Engelhardt 63 minutes after the match, which started 90 minutes late due to a power outage.

The Chiefs remained in 6th place despite the victory, 8 points behind leader Mamelodi Sundowns, one match less than the other upper half clubs.

Sundowns promoted 26 points, Stellenbosch 21 promoted Sexunne United 20, and the goal difference divided Supersports United, Royal AM and Chiefs.

Orlando Pirates and Amazur each have 15 points, on the other side of the top half of the league bankrolled by Pan-African Sports Broadcasting Supersport.

Winning a record 53 national trophies and one of the wealthiest African football clubs, the Chiefs recently rehired British coach Stuart Baxter. Stuart Baxter has won four trophies in his previous stint.

After defeating Maritzburg, a former South African coach said, “I was really happy with the performance in the second half.”

“We were active and aggressive in the stadium where visiting clubs usually fight to collect maximum points. Our goal was planned during training and was well implemented.”

The Sundowns failed to secure their second maximum point on 10 Premiership outings when played 0-0 in Cape Town City.

Stellenbosch, who barely avoided relegation last season, was the only undefeated team in the league and seemed to defeat visiting Amazur after establishing a two-goal advantage.

Nigeria’s Stanley Dimgba broke the deadlock in the 59th minute and was involved in Ashley du Prez’s second goal-up.

Sphesihle Maduna halved the deficit with a low shot from the outside of the box, and the wind helped Keagan Buchanan’s corner land on the net two minutes later, saving AmaZulu’s points.
