Teams: Orlando Pirates v SuperSport United
Date: 21 November 2020
Venue: Orlando Stadium
Orlando Pirates will be itching to set the DStv Premiership alight when they host SuperSport United at Orlando Stadium on Saturday evening.
Pirates have not exactly set the league alight, but they have caught the eye with their run to the MTN8 final after notably knocking out Kaizer Chiefs in the semi-finals with a whopping 5-0 aggregate win.
Josef Zinnbauer's charges are unbeaten this season across the two competitions but only got their first win in the DStv Premiership at the third attempt with a 1-0 victory over Bloemfontein Celtic.
In contrast, Matsatsantsa have been inconsistent so far this season after they were booted out of the MTN8 tournament in the semi-finals by Celtic, who won 2-1 on aggregate.
Kaitano Tembo's troops have won two out of their three league games, the last of which was a slender 1-0 win over Stellenbosch before they faced Siwelele in the second-leg of the MTN8 semi-finals.
The two meetings between the sides last season produced six goals, with SuperSport thrashing Pirates 3-0 in the first round at Mbombela Stadium before the Soweto giants got their revenge with a 2-1 win in the bio-bubble.
Here's how they line up:
Pirates: 31. Ofori, 14. Hlatshwayo, 5. Nyauza, 17. Jooste, 23. Maela, 6. Motshwari, 15. Makaringe, 16. Monare, 45. Pule, 11. Hotto, 25. Lepasa.
