The claws are out, and the soldiers are readying their weapons for war… This weekend throws up an interesting game, Mamelodi Sundowns against Orlando Pirates in the Nedbank Cup. Pirates have not managed to pip their Chloorkop rivals in the past two encounters… Will revenge be enough to inspire the Buccaneers?
To make things even more interesting, Sundowns will be even more fired up after their midweek failure to secure a spot in the next round of the CAF Champions League, and Bucs need the silverware so that this season is not a barren one for them…
Supporters Club caught up with Orlando Pirates fan Mama Joy to find out what this game means to the Happy People.
"This is payback time! This is revenge. In this cup game we want them to pay, 100% and nothing less," she said.
"We don't want 'CBD' (Leonardo Castro, Khama Billiat, and Keagan Dolly) to score even one goal.
"Sundowns are in real trouble, they lost out earlier this week, and now we want to make Sundowns cry."
Mama Joy believes the league is already in Sundowns' hands and now they need to share, because they cannot have both the league and Nedbank Cup, according to her.
Which will win, revenge or a Sundowns' favourable history?
