Soweto Drawby?

This weekend’s 0-0 draw was the 16th competitive draw between Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates in the last decade, confirming it as the most common result in the tie.

There have been 31 Soweto Derbies played in all competitions since the 2004/05 season, and while more games have been won by the Amakhosi, it is the 16 draws that stand out.

Of those 16 draws, two have gone on to be decided on penalties and one via extra time, while 13 have simply ended with the spoils shared by the two bitter rivals.

Only seven times over the past decade have three or more goals been scored in a Soweto Derby, and seven of the 31 matches in that period have finished 90 minutes at 0-0 with no goals scored.

In the last decade Chiefs have ended up on the winning side on 10 occasions, while Pirates have come out on top eight times, though the Buccaneers are yet to win in their last competitive six attempts and Stuart Baxter hasn’t lost a league Derby since making the move to Naturena.

Given the importance put upon the Derby in South Africa it is no shock that the game often becomes a tense, tight game, and only once in the last decade has there been a game that has seen more than four goals scored (3-2 to Pirates in 2012).
