DStv Premiership

Teams: Orlando Pirates v Chippa United

Date: 27 April 2022

Venue: Orlando Stadium

Time: 17h00

Pirates come into the clash in high spirits after advancing to the VAF Confederation Cup semi-finals after defeating Simba on penalties at Orlando Stadium.

The Buccaneers were denied a third straight league win the last time they were in action after playing to a goalless draw against Baroka.

Pirates are involved in a jam-packed race to finish in the continental places, as they sit fifth on the log, six points behind second-placed Royal AM with a game in hand and can't afford to drop points.

Chippa, on the other hand, had a ten-day rest since ending a three-match winless run with a 1-0 victory over Stellenbosch.

The Chilli Boys are still looking to secure their top-flight status, as they sit just two points above the relegation play-off spot held by TS Galaxy.

The Buccaneers have been imperious against Chippa in recent season, with consecutive league victories since November 2016.

Here's how they line up:

Pirates: 31. Ofori, 5. Nyauza, 49. Ndah, 26. Shandu, 23. Maela, 42. Mabaso, 15. Makaringe, 11. Hotto, 3. Lorch, 27. Dzvukamanja, 46.Peprah

Subs: 40. Mpontshane, 32. Mntambo, 20. Mosele, 18. Dlamini, 9. Mabasa, 8. Ndlovu, 7. Mhango, 6. Motshwari, 4. Jele

Chippa: 1. Kazapua, 4. Hanamub, 14. Mkhize, 35. Pfumbidzai, 23. September, 29. Mthethwa, 24. Zulu, 18. Makobela, 6. Seabi, 34. Mbenyane, 9. Eva Nga.

Subs: 19. Watenga, 8. Maloisane, 2. Mdunyelwa, 12. Matrose, 17. Sekotlong, 31. Dinge, 26. Sangare, 28. Lebitso, 36. Luthuli.
