PSL CAF Permutations: Wits Clinch CL, Nothing For Chiefs

Bidvest Wits Have Secured A CAF CL Spot, Kaizer Chiefs Can't

By Soccer Laduma - May 23, 2017 01:00 PM

Kaizer Chiefs are the only top five side without a CAF inter-club competition to play for next season, with Bidvest Wits having already sealed their spot in the Champions League.

The top two sides in the Absa Premiership will secure a place in the 2018 Champions League competition, while third place will go on to play in the Confederation Cup alongside the Nedbank Cup winner.

Mamelodi Sundowns and Cape Town City have already ensured that they will be playing continental football next year, although it remains to be seen which team will be playing in which competition.

A Sundowns victory this weekend would guarantee them a spot in the 2018 edition of the CL, but they also have a chance of reaching it should they manage to retain the trophy this year.

Meanwhile, SuperSport United and Orlando Pirates will battle it out for the second CC position when they lock horns in the Nedbank final in Durban next month, with the victor joining third-place in the second-tier continental tournament.

Chiefs, who are currently fifth, said on their website today that a fourth-place finish would see them qualify for next season’s CC competition*, however, that is not the case and for the second year in a row, they will be without competitive games outside South Africa. 

*The club have since edited their web piece.

Pitso and his coaching staf should do a thorough introspection of their coaching methods. Looking at 2016/17 it looks like Gavin Hunt has got their number. Consider the following examples : mtn 8 final, Wits 3 Downs 0. The deciding game between the two teams for league supremacy , Wits 1 Downs 0. Eventually Wits went on to win the league. Summing it all, Gavin Hunt and his students denied Masandawana two very important cups this season.
