Date: 18 September 2015

Orlando Pirates welcome the in-form Mpumalanga Black Aces to the Orlando Stadium as they aim pick up their second win of the Absa Premiership campaign. The Buccaneers are a wounded side after suffering a 4-1 thrashing at the hands of Zamalek in their final CAF Confederation Cup group encounter.
