Key Players to Watch
Patrick Maswanganyi (Orlando Pirates)
Patrick Maswanganyi, a midfielder for the Orlando Pirates, has quickly adapted to life at the Buccaneers after joining the club in the off-season. He has been turning in one impressive performance after another and has been one of Orlando Pirates’ main creative sparks this season, contributing six assists in just seven appearances across competitions.
Lucas Ribeiro (Mamelodi Sundowns)
Lucas Ribeiro, a Brazilian forward for Mamelodi Sundowns, is in the midst of an impressive debut season. He has already registered six goals in the early part of the campaign. Fresh off a brace scored on Friday, Ribeiro will be looking to make an impact in one of the most highly-anticipated fixtures on the South African football calendar.
Last season, Orlando Pirates and Mamelodi Sundowns engaged in four memorable encounters. The Tshwane outfit secured a 1-0 victory in each of their two league clashes, while the Buccaneers walked away with a convincing 3-0 win in the away leg of their MTN8 semi-final after a goalless draw at Orlando Stadium. The hosts will be looking for their first league victory in this fixture since winning at home in January 2020 when a first-half goal from Gabadinho Mhango was enough to separate the two sides.
The game is scheduled to kick off at 19:30 and will be broadcast live on SuperSport PSL. Don’t miss out on this exciting match!
