Starting XI: TS Galaxy v Pirates

DStv Premiership 

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.

The Man of the Match against Usuthu, Ben Motshwari will be missing for the Buccaneers due to suspension after picking up his fourth booking.

On the other hand, the Rockets will be looking to get back to winning ways after back-to-back losses to Mamelodi Sundowns and Golden Arrows.

Owen Da Gama's men sit nint on the log, just a point behind eighth-placed Baroka and will be fighting grab a top eight spot with only two rounds of matches remaining after this match.

Galaxy will be hoping to cause an upset after holding Pirates to a 1-1 draw in the first round clash at Orlando Stadium.
