Orlando Pirates will be going to the Peter Mokaba Stadium this evening knowing that any result less than a victory could end their chances of qualifying for the CAF interclub competition next season.
The Buccaneers are fourth on the DStv Premiership log and tied on 46 points with third-placed Golden Arrows, and behind second-placed AmaZulu who are on 50 points, going into the penultimate fixtures of the 2020/21 campaign.
Following their disappointing 1-0 loss against TS Galaxy at the weekend, Bucs have to win both their remaining matches and depend on the results from the matches of Usuthu and Abafana Bes’thende to retain any hopes of the Champions League qualification.
Meanwhile, Pirates will be without versatile player Abel Mabaso after he was red-carded against Galaxy, while Josef Zinnbauer and the team will welcome back star midfielder Ben Motshwari, who comes back after missing the weekend’s match due to one-match suspension.
There are just 2 matchdays left until the inaugural DStv Premiership champion is crowned.
