Key Stats:

With tonight’s game more likely to seem as a revenge for Orlando Pirates on AmaZulu, the visitors go into this match with a bit of stats dominance over the home side. Bucs have 16.92 shots on goal compared to Usuthu’s 11.4, and dominate with ball possession as well. They have entries into the final third standing at 70.42 and still lead the KZN side who stand at 68.2.

After squandering a number of glorious opportunities against SuperSport United this past weekend, the Parktown outfit will look to dominate this game from the get go.
