The defending champions, Rollers extended their 32-match unbeaten run carried from last season.

“I have always said it will take a Madinda Ndlovu-coached Chiefs to beat Rollers and a Madinda Ndlovu-coached Rollers to beat Chiefs,” Ndlovu told Monitor Sport after the game. Chiefs committed a foul just outside the 18-yard box in the third minute. Rollers hit the cross bar from that free kick and the ball was brought back into play.
