Soccer 6

The match of the week is one of the biggest derbies in the world. Kaizer Chiefs will host rivals Orlando Pirates in the Soweto Derby on Saturday, October 21. The two teams will be fighting for three points, however, bragging rights are also on the table.

Mamelodi Sundowns will be looking to get back to winning ways after their midweek defeat against Kaizer Chiefs, as they take on AmaZulu. Usuthu have eight points from seven encounters and will be looking to add salt to the wounds of Pitso Mosimane’s side.

On Sunday, October 22, Chippa United will host Cape Town City in an ABSA Premiership league encounter. The Mother City-outfit have been facing some tough times, losing their MTN8 final and their midweek match. They will be hoping to turn the corner, however, Chippa will be no walkover.


Kaizer Chiefs v Orlando Pirates (Premier Soccer League)

League standings: Kaizer Chiefs 6th & Orlando Pirates 4th

Useful facts: It’s the Soweto derby, considered one of the most fiercely contested matches in African football. Kaizer Chiefs coach Steven Komphela is under massive pressure and a win against their archrivals will do a lot to bring back the belief from the fans. Only three points separate the two teams on the league table. With Thamsanqa Gabuza in good form and Amakhosi suffering a crisis at the back, expect a lot of attacking football on display.

Mamelodi Sundowns v AmaZulu (Premier Soccer League)

League standings: Mamelodi Sundowns 5th & AmaZulu 9th

Useful facts: The Brazilians, who look enterprising with the likes of Themba Zwane, Percy Tau and Sibusiso Vilakazi in their arsenal, will pile the pressure on the log leaders with a win against Usuthu. AmaZulu have been blowing hot and cold and are a tricky opposition for Pitso Mosimane’s men. Rhulani Manzini will be looking to continue with his good form for the visitors.

Chippa United v Cape Town City (Premier Soccer League) 

League standings: Chippa United 12th & Cape Town City 3rd 

Useful facts: It’s win or bust for the Chilli Boys, who are in dangerous territory on the league table. They will be fancying their chances playing at home in front of their buoyant fans. Tebogo Moloi is searching for his first win since replacing Dan Malesela. Benni McCarthy’s charges, on the other side, will be looking to continue with their impressive start to the season and to bounce back from the disappointment of losing the MTN 8 final to SuperSport United.
