Although both Mamelodi Sundowns and Orlando Pirates are gaining momentum in form, the head to-head record between the juggernauts of South African football tips the scale slightly in the Bucs favour.
The two have met on three occasions in 2014 thus far, twice in the PSL and once in the Nedbank Cup third round.
In the league fixtures, Downs and Pirates have a win each. However, it was in the Nedbank Cup third round where Pirates gained the upper hand by beating Downs 2-1 earlier this year.
With the rejuvenated form of Kermit Erasmus, along with Lehlohonolo Majoro raising his hand for selection after scoring two beautiful goals on the weekend, we really do have to treat this game with caution.
