Teams: TS Galaxy v Orlando Pirates
Date: 30 May 2021
Venue: Mbombela Stadium
Orlando Pirates will be desperate to keep their CAF Champions League hopes alive when they visit TS Galaxy in the DStv Premiership on Sunday afternoon at Mbombela Stadium.
The match will get underway at 15h00.
Pirates responded to their humiliating exit in the CAF Confederation Cup at the hands of Raja Casablanca with a crucial 1-0 win over AmaZulu on Thursday.
The result was a six-pointer for Josef Zinnbauer's charges as they closed the gap behind second-placed Usuthu to four points in fourth place and they could move to within one point of Benni McCarthy's troops in third place if they get maximum points.
