Kaizer Chiefs didn’t have an easy evening, but the 2-0 win over Maritzburg United was well-deserved. Striker Gutavo Páez scored a brace, with a goal coming in each half.
The young and lively midfielder Khotso Malope was handed his debut wearing the Gold & Black jersey. The 23-year-old is a product of Amakhosi’s youth development structures. He replaced George Maluleka in midfield, who is struggling with a thigh injury.
