Teko Pick Odds On Favourites For Soweto Derby

SportPesa ambassador Teko Modise believes that Orlando Pirates are in the driving seat to win the Carling Black Label Cup this weekend, based on the current team selection.

As per competition rules, the starting line-ups for the two clubs are voted for by the fans, and Modise thinks the structured nature of the team selected by the Buccaneers’ faithful has put them at an advantage!

“Orlando Pirates, especially at the back, is the better selection with the structured back four that they normally use. With all their attacking players on the pitch that have been doing well, especially for the last season. I think they stand a better chance in terms of their attack, especially because you can’t make a sub until half time. So, I think Orlando Pirates stand a better chance because of how structured they are at the back,” said Teko, giving his tips ahead of the Soweto Derby.

SportPesa odds also favour Orlando Pirates, with a play of a Bucs win seeing a return of 2.34 times your stake. Click on the team you think will win to make your play!

Modise is no stranger to the pressures that come with playing in-front of a sold-out crowd in what’s considered to be the Continents biggest derby, having donned the black and white of Orlando Pirates for four seasons in his illustrious career. He knows just how much these bragging rights will mean to both teams but feels the Amakhosi may be bested in this fixture.  

“As for Kaizer Chiefs, they’ve selected three natural centre backs in a back four that are all right footed. One of those three central defenders would have to play at left back, which wouldn’t be his natural position, hence they’re going to have a problem attacking on the left, which is their stronger side since Khama Billiat is playing on the left. They’re going to have to readjust and play lopsided. 

“And knowing how Orlando Pirates attack, it’s quick and very aggressive in that regard. I think Orlando Pirates have a better chance and might even win the game in the first half, so I see the game going 2-1 to Orlando Pirates based on the structure they have versus what Kaizer Chiefs have selected at the moment,” said Modise.
