What Chiefs Can Expect From Pirates Ahead Of Soweto Derby

Orlando Pirates head into Soweto derby in goalscoring form

By Soccer Laduma - Feb 28, 2018 02:06 PM

Orlando Pirates will have several key players who could have a significant impact in Saturday’s derby against Kaizer Chiefs. 

The Buccaneers have enjoyed recent goalscoring form and currently outgun their Soweto rivals, Chiefs, in the goalscoring department.

As things stand Pirates have scored nine league goals in five league games while Amakhosi have only found the back of the net four times in their last five encounters. 

Furthermore, The Ghost have a greater average of players scoring regularly over their long-standing rivals. One of the key players for the Parktown based side on Saturday will be Ghanaian attacker Bernard Morrison, who is in rich goalscoring form having bagged a brace both in the league and Nedbank Cup.

Zambian striker Justin Shonga will be another trump card for the coach, Milutin Sredojević as the Zambian international has scored three times in his last five league appearances.

Other Bucs players who have contributed to this campaign include winger Luvuyo Memela with 3 league goals and Thamsanqa Gabuza also with three goals. 

The midfield is another area where Pirates have excelled with the likes of Memela and Thembinkosi Lorch who lead the pack with 4 and 3 assists each respectively. 

Pirates and Chiefs square off at the FNB stadium on Saturday 3 March 2018, with the game scheduled to start at 15:30.

@indidane if i was you i would be looking at my hoodoo Usuthu team if you are a Sundowns Fan because last time i checked Nomvethe and Khanyeza ran rampant of your shaky defence so it all starts on Friday, and the big guns will take the centre stage on Surtaday.

Chiefs line up is predictable. They will play 6 defenders at the back

Chiefs have good defenders while pirates have good attackers. Pirates don't good defenders while chiefs also good attackers, so chiefs will score goals easy coz piracy is not good in defence. Chiefs will score quick two goal in first half and defend till the game finishes
