DStv Premiership

Teams: TS Galaxy v Orlando Pirates

Date: 02 May 2022

Venue: Mbombela Stadium

Time: 15h00

Pirates have qualified for CAF Confederation Cup semi-finals after edging Simba on penalties but their participation in next season's continental competitions is at risk.

The Buccaneers dropped points in back-to-back league matches after two goalless stalemates against Baroka and Chippa United.

As a result, Pirates trail second-placed Royal AM by five points and third-placed Cape Town City by four points in fourth position on the log and will be desperate to keep their hopes of going back to Africa alive.

The Rockets, meanwhile, have steadily improved their results, with only one loss in their last five matches.

However, Sead Ramovic's charges are struggling to put consecutive victories on the board, as they were held to a 1-1 draw by Maritzburg the last time out.

Galaxy will be fighting for their lives, as they are precariously lying second-from-bottom on the log, five points ahead of bottom side Baroka and equal on points with 14th-placed Swallows, who have a superior goal difference.

Pirates will be chasing a league double over the Rockets after securing a 2-0 victory in the reverse fixture.

Here's how they line up:

Galaxy: 38. Buthelezi, 3. Seedat, 23. Munyai, 45. Sanoka, 5. Msimango, 35. Mbatha, 6, Mbunjana, 15. Aubaas, 27. Mahlangu, 44. Mongae, 13. Hlongwane.

Subs: 32. Kolak, 14. Radebe, 4. Mahlangu, 8. Nduli, 17. Chidi Kwem, 10. Brooks, 49. Sebelebele, 25. Fakude, 47. Teto.

Pirates: 31. Ofori, 26. Shandu, 5. Nyauza, 4. Jele, Maela, 42. Mabaso, 20. Mosele, 3. Lorch, 32. Mntambo, 11. Hotto, 27. Dzvukamanja.

Subs: 40. Mpontshane, 46. Peprah, 25. Lepasa, 19. Sam, 18. Dlamini, 17. Jooste, 15. Makaringe, 14. Hlatshwayo, 6. Motshwari
