Ernst Middendorp will once again lead his side in the Caf Confederation Cup match in Madagascar

Kaizer Chiefs will be targeting their third win on the trot when they visit Elgeco Plus in the return leg of the Caf Confederation Cup first-round on Saturday. 

Amakhosi head into the encounter with a healthy 3-0 win from the first leg, meaning their chances of advancing to the next round look good.

Elgeco Plus need to win by the same scoreline to at least force the game to be decided on penalties, but should Chiefs score in Madagascar, then they will be home and dry. 

Ernst Middendorp's tenure has been something of a fairytale with Chiefs seemingly back to their best.    

Should he win this encounter, then this would be the perfect way to end the year for Amakhosi.

Match Preview


Kaizer Chiefs, December 2018

Chiefs have scored eight goals and conceded two in their first three matches in the competition.

They didn't concede in their previous two competitive matches, something which Middendorp would look to keep intact.

As things stand, Elgeco Plus, who are campaigning in the competition for the second time, appear to be dead and buried.

However, they cannot be ruled out altogether simply because they're playing in front of their home fans. 

Chiefs are the second South African team to face Elgeco Plus after SuperSport United. 

Matsatsantsa beat the Madagascan team 2-1 away from home.
