Kaizer Chiefs starting XI prediction: The Glamour Boys are back in action on Wednesday evening when we will be treated to another Soweto derby.

Arthur Zwane has favoured an attacking 4-3-3 formation in recent league matches, eschewing the 4-2-3-1 and 3-4-3 systems which he turned to on a few match days.

Given the defensive effort put in by Chiefs over the weekend it is quite likely that veteran stopper Itumeleng Khune will start ahead of Bruce Bvuma and Brandon Petersen.

Since becoming available to Zwane, Edmilson Dove has started both matches and he should resume his centre back partnership with Zitha Kwinika.

When it comes to fullbacks, Kaizer Chiefs have two standouts who should hold onto their places with Sifiso Hlanti and Dillan Solomons likely to be deployed on the flanks

In a three man midfield Siyethemba Sithebe needs a big performance but could still retain his place alongside favourites Yusuf Maart and Njabulo Blom who appears to have put his contract conflict behind him.

Up front Ashley du Preez might not be so lucky and we might see Keagan Dolly take his place on the left side of the three-pronged attack which should also include Kgaogelo Sekgota, who has been brilliant this term and target man Bonfils-Caleb Bimenyimana.
