Nedbank Cup 

Teams: Orlando Pirates v Ajax Cape Town

Date: 10 February 2018

Venue: Orlando Stadium

Orlando Pirates will be seeking revenge, when they host Ajax Cape Town in a Nedbank Cup last 32 round encounter, at Orlando Stadium on Saturday evening.
The match is scheduled to get underway at 20h15.
The two sides met last week in the Absa Premiership, with the Urban Warriors running out 3-0 winners at the Cape Town Stadium.
The Buccaneers beat Maritzburg United 2-1 last weekend, in a league encounter at the same stadium.
Pirates came close to lifting the trophy last season, but were thrashed 4-1 by SuperSport United in the final and will want to go all the way and claim it this term.
Ertugral has injected confidence in the side that was starring at a relegation guillotine, but now have gone three games unbeaten in the league following their 1-1 draw away to Polokwane City.
The Mother City club have won this competition just once in 2007. Last season they were embarrassed after being dumped by lower league side Kwa-Dukuza United in the last 32 round.
Here's how they line up:

Pirates: 40. Mpontshane, 4, Jele, 34. Nyauza, 39. Maphanga, 24. Thopola, 6. Shitolo, 18. Sarr, 33. Munetsi, 12. Morrison, 3. Lorch, 27. Shonga.
