Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs will begin their defence of their Absa Premiership title when they face Chippa United at Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium.

Chippa finished last season in 14th place, with 30 points from as many matches. They finished above Moroka Swallows only on goal difference.

The Eastern Cape side won six of their first 12 matches in 2014/15, but then won just once more in their remaining 18 fixtures.

Chiefs romped to the top flight championship last season, picking up a record 69 points from 30 matches.

They lost just three matches all season (after recording a 19-match unbeaten streak) and conceded only 14 goals along the way.

In head-to-head stats, Chippa and Chiefs have met in four league matches since 2012/13.

The Amakhosi boast a 100 percent record in the sequence, with four wins from as many matches.

Chippa’s two previous home matches against Chiefs have both ended in 2-0 defeats.

Last season the Amakhosi beat Chippa 1-0 at home in the first half of the campaign, before ending their 2014/15 work with a 2-0 victory at the very same venue this match will be played at.

Of the seven different players who have scored against the Chilli Boys, only two (Parker and Katsande) remain on Chiefs’ books.

The match is scheduled for Sunday, August 9.

Kick-off is at 15:00.
