Bucs Have The Edge Over Sundowns

Head-to-head statistics suggest that Orlando Pirates go into Wednesday night’s game against rivals Mamelodi Sundowns as slight favourites.



In the last 25 matches between the two sides, Bucs have won 10, Sundowns eight, and the other seven having ended in draws.

The Buccaneers were also the last team to win a match between the two sides, when they ousted Sundowns from the Nedbank Cup in April this year.

A sixth minute penalty by Oupa Manyisa and a second-half goal by Daine Klate saw the mighty Buccaneers downing Sundowns at the same venue. Elias Pelembe scored the consolation goal for Sundowns.

Who will win the game for Bucs?

Based on the statistics for the Pirates versus Bidvest Wits game this past Saturday, Sifiso Myeni, Daine Klate, Oupa Manyisa and amazing defender Siyabonga Sangweni could be the men who could hurt Sundowns on Wednesday.

Myeni, who spent 49 minutes on the pitch, made 15 passes and 14 of those passes were successful, giving him a 93.3% success rate.

Klate, who played 46 minutes, made 17 passes and 15 reaching their intended target, giving him a 88.24 successful pass rate.

Manyisa who played every minute of the game, made 21 passes with 18 of them reaching the target, giving him a 85.71% successful pass rate.

Amazingly, Sangweni came third in the standings for a successful number of passing in the game against Wits. The defender made 17 passes, with 14 of them successful and that gave him a 82.35% sucessful pass rate.

This statistic shows that Pirates build their attack from the back and Sangweni plays an important role in the Bucs attack.
