Put aside recent form or head to head as whenever Orlando Pirates and Kaizer Chiefs meet in a friendly, cup or league encounter, fireworks are almost always expected. On Saturday Amakhosi and the Sea Robbers meet in the biggest encounter in South African Football.
Saturday’s encounter will be one of wounded lions after Pirates and Chiefs both lost their last encounters. The Bucanners slumped to a 1 nil loss at the hands of Jomo Cosmos while the glamour boys crashed to a 2-1 loss against Platinum Stars.
Kaizer Chiefs head into tomorrow’s battle on fourth position with 25 points, 8 behind log leaders Mamelodi Sundowns. On the other hand struggling Orlando Pirates are in eleventh place with 16 points.
Chiefs head into Saturday’s game eager for maximum points that will be critical in keeping them withing touching distance of early pace setters Mamelodi Sundowns.
The Bucaneers however have the task of working their way up the log as they are unexpected in 11th place, a position few would have expected the Seas Robbers to be in at this stage of the season.
