Mzansi Anticipates Soweto Derby

Samir Nurkovic of Kaizer Chiefs challenged by Ntsikelelo Nyauza of Orlando Pirates during the 2019 Telkom Knockout quarter final match between Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates at Moses Mabhida Stadium, Pietermaritzburg, on 2 November 2019

When the league started even the most passionate supporter of Kaizer Chiefs wouldn’t have seen this coming, that Amakhosi would head into Saturday’s Absa Premiership Soweto derby against Orlando Pirates well clear at the top of the table

Furthermore, even fewer experts could have predicted that Orlando Pirates would be sitting in a limbo that involved their coach comparing the team to a Picasso but giving results of an awful painter. Orlando is on 7th place after they played a goalless draw with Maritzburg United.

While Pirates have a other bad news with Happy Jele’s suspension leaves Pirates facing centre-back crisis.

Happy Jele has more appearances than any other player in the squad.

The two Soweto giants meet on Saturday the 9th of November at FNB Stadium. Orlando Pirates lost 2-1 in penalties in the Telkom Knockout Cup while Kazier Chiefs are the most favoured in this fixture, winning the last 5 matches in the Absa Premiership
