New Orlando pirates signing, Abbubaker Mobara is away with the SA under 23 team in Rio and so far has played very well.
The young, versatile defender has come against Barcelona superstar, Neymar for a whole 90 minutes and contained him until Neymar was furious with him.
In the Absa Premiership, there’s the CBD dominance with footballer of the season, Khama Billiat, and other two being SA under 23 captain, Keagan Dolly, and Colombian goal poacher, Leonardo Castro.
The battle between Billiat and Mobara could be interesting, like it was with Neymar, especially after Edwin Gyimah was sent off when he came up against Billiat last season in the Nedbank Cup Quarter final.
With Sundowns already beating pirates in a preseason tournament, it could be a very good game with everyone back at their teams.
Could the Mobara and Billiat battle be better than Mobara and Neymar? Or could the CBD be too much for Mobara and the Bucs defence?
