It is almost kickoff time for the Soweto derby between Orlando Pirates and Kazier Chiefs.

  • The Buccaneers currently sit second on the log with 16 points from ten matches, four points behind leaders Bidvest Wits, who defeated Highlands Park on Friday.

On the other hand, arch-rivals Amakhosi saw their seven-game unbeaten run in the league come to an end after they lost 1-0 to Polokwane City in their last top flight encounter.

Giovanni Solinas will be hoping his charges regain the form that saw them amass ten points from the last four games before they lost to Rise and Shine.

The Glamour Boys occupy third spot on the table with 14 points from ten matches, six points behind table-toppers Wits and two points behind Pirates.

Chiefs have not beaten the Buccaneers in the last seven derbies in the league, with their last win coming in the 2013/2014 season.

When the two teams clashed last season, they drew 0-0 in the first round before Pirates won the return game 3-1.
