Kaizer Chiefs began the season on a good note by defeating Free State Stars 1-0 at the Charles Mopeli Stadium in Qwa Qwa today. George Lebese scored the only goal of the match on 55 minutes.
Free State Stars endured a challenging season in 2013/14, ending 14th on the league table, just one point above the danger zone.
The Amakhosi got into the clash following a confidence boosting victory over Black Aces last weekend in the MTN8 Cup.
In head-to-head stats, Stars and Chiefs have met in 30 league matches since 1996.
The Amakhosi have 19 wins compared to three for Ea Lla Koto, while eight matches have been drawn. Stars have won just two of their 14 home matches against Chiefs down the years, suffering eight defeats in the process.
