Maritzburg – A Tricky Opponent For Pirates

As the season grinds down to its completion, Orlando Pirates and Maritzburg United find themselves in need of victories. This is a much anticipated fixture; the last time these two sides met, they played out to a thrilling 3-3 draw. What can be expected this time around?

"At least we are playing them at home, but it will still be tricky," Orlando Pirates superfan Dejan Miladinovic said.

"I think we are going to pick up the pieces but it's going to be tough.

"Who would imagine that Jomo Cosmos would hold Ajax at home? Football is unpredictable."

Maritzburg United will be going into this game guns blazing as they have done in most matches this season. The Team of Choice has, unfortunately, remained rooted to the foot of the table for most of the campaign; however, they have showed some fantastic displays of football.

Included in this was their 3-3 thrilling draw with Pirates in Pietermaritzburg earlier this season. In fact, you will be stressed to find a game this season in which Maritzburg United haven't scored a goal. They do concede a lot, but they have scored one less goal this season than eighth-placed SuperSport United.

Now they face the intimidating task of fighting their way out of the relegation zone. One suspects we will be in for a thriller this weekend, no matter which way the result swings.
