Starting XI: Pirates v AmaTuks

Telkom Knockout
 
Teams: Orlando Pirates v University of Pretoria
 
Date: 16 October 2015
 
Venue: Orlando Stadium
 
Orlando Pirates return to domestic matters with a Telkom Knockout Last 16 tie against the University of Pretoria this evening.
 
The match is scheduled to get underway at 20h00.
 
The Buccaneers were in CAF Confederation Cup action before the international break, as they defeated Al Ahly in the semi-final to secure a spot in the final.
 
While, their last domestic encounter saw them draw 0-0 with Polokwane City in an Absa Premiership tie at home.
 
Goalkeeper, Felipe Ovono, returned to camp on Wednesday and is expected to start, although Issa Sarr and Edwin Gyimah are doubtful.
 
AmaTuks, meanwhile, will be hoping to return to winning ways, as they come into this tie on the back of a four-game winless run.
 
In the six previous clashes between the two sides, Pirates have picked up two wins compared to Tuks' one, while the other three matches have ended in draws.
 
Here's how they line up:
 
Orlando Pirates: Ovono, Mahamutsa, Gcaba, Jele, Matlaba, Masalesa, Ntshumayelo, Makola, Rakhale, Erasmus, Gabuza 
 
University of Pretoria: Arubi, Jaure, Mwedihanga, Ngubane, Lichaba, Mosadi, Zwane, Ketjijere, Nyathi, Mnyamane, Nyondo
