- However, the team's third consecutive loss to the Durban side has not concerned coach Arthur Zwane
Kaizer Chiefs must be tired of Royal AM.
The Amakhosi lost 1-0 to Thwihli Thwahla courtesy of a Ricardo Nascimento goal at the Chatsworth Stadium in the opening match of the 2022/23 DStv Premiership season. This was the third consecutive defeat Chiefs have suffered at the hands of Royal, having been whitewashed by them last season.
Despite this, head coach Arthur Zwane said:
“If you look at the game today, they were just lucky to get maximum points. So I'm not even worried about that (Royal becoming a hoodoo for Chiefs). Come the second round they’re not going to come back with points at FNB Stadium.

“If you checked the game, the better part of the second half they couldn’t come out of their own half and it’s unlike the team of Royal AM calibre. They’re very good on the ball, but how many chances did they create in the second half? There’s no doubt that if we can put them on their back foot for the better part of the second half, then we’re on the right track. We’re going to get them.”
Royal AM's DStv Diski Challenge team also completed a home and away sweep over Kaizer Chiefs last season.
