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.

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.

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.
