Starting XI: Wits v Pirates

MTN 8 

Teams: Bidvest Wits v Orlando Pirates

Date: 27 August 2016

Venue: Bidvest Stadium

Bidvest Wits and Orlando Pirates will lock horns in an MTN8 quarterfinal tie this evening. 

The match is scheduled to get underway at 20h00.

Gavin Hunt's charges come into this clash on the back of an impressive victory over Kaizer Chiefs on Tuesday evening.

While, the Buccaneers defeated Golden Arrows 3-1 thanks to a hat-trick from Tendai Ndoro.

Ndoro was stretchered off in the second half on Wednesday evening, however the Zimbabwean is fit enough to start for Muhsin Ertugral's charges.

Ertugral has handed starts to Pirates new signings Abbubaker Mobara and Riyaad Norodien, while Felipe Ovono retains his place in the side.

Here's how they line-up:

Bidvest Wits: 16. Josephs, 2. Allie, 3.Hlatshwayo, 15. Mkhwanazi, 13. Hlanti, 7. Klate, 8, Monare, 19. Mlambo, 17. Mhango, 10. Ngele, 25 Malajila
