Both Orlando Pirates and AmaZulu will be looking for their first wins in the Absa Premiership when they lock horns in a league match at Orlando Stadium on Wednesday night.

The Buccaneers have only claimed one point in the league season thus far, going down 2-1 to Moroka Swallows and then drawing 2-2 with Bloemfontein Celtic.

Pirates, though, do come into this match high on confidence after beating Bidvest Wits 2-0 in a first leg MTN8 semifinal this past weekend.

AmaZulu have also only earned one point after drawing their opening league match against Ajax Cape Town 0-0 before losing 2-1 to Swallows as well.

In head-to-head stats, Pirates and AmaZulu have met in 51 league matches since 1985.

The Buccaneers have 22 wins compared to 10 for Usuthu, while no less than 19 matches have been drawn.

Pirates have won 15 of their 25 home matches against AmaZulu down the years, suffering four defeats in the process.

Last season Usuthu took four points off the Buccaneers, winning 1-0 in Soweto before playing to a 1-1 draw in the return game in Durban.
