Absa Premiership leaders Kaizer Chiefs have helped themselves to the Q2 Q-Innovation.
The Premier Soccer League announced the winners via social media. The accolade meant Chiefs pick up their second running Q quarter.
“Current Absa Premiership log leaders, Kaizer Chiefs have claimed the second quarter of the 2019/20 Absa Premiership Q-Innovation,” the PSL said in the statement.
“This is second successive Q-Innovation victory for Kaizer Chiefs in the 2019/20 season. Kaizer Chiefs won Quarter Two with 16 points from seven fixtures. Going to the previous weekend, Bidvest Wits were the only side that stood a realistic chance of upsetting Kaizer Chiefs’ party but their 0-2 loss to Cape Town City on Saturday night ended their Q2 aspirations and paved a way for Kaizer Chiefs to claim top prize,” added the PSL.
“Before this season kicked-off in August 2019, Kaizer Chiefs had not won a Quarter since 2014/15 season – which happened to be the last time Amakhosi claimed the Absa Premiership title. Each side that wins a Quarter gets R1, 5 million in prize money. Quarter One (8 Fixtures), Quarter Two (7 Fixtures), Quarter Three (8 Fixtures), Quarter Four (7 Fixtures). The PSL congratulates Kaizer Chiefs for winning the Quarter.
The league also confirmed that CAF Champions League campaigners Mamelodi Sundowns have finished second. “Mamelodi Sundowns finished second on the Absa Premiership Quarter Two log standings with 14 points from seven fixtures. Bidvest Wits, who came in third, also had 14 points – but scored fewer goals than Mamelodi Sundowns. Chippa United, who have been rebirthed under Zimbabwean coach Norman Mapeza were fourth with 13 points,” concluded the statement.
