SOWETO – Orlando Pirates will look to maintain their unbeaten record this season when they welcome Baroka to the Orlando Stadium in Soweto in a DStv Premiership clash on Saturday afternoon.
The Buccaneers have had a great start to the season thus far having been unbeaten in their four games that they have played and have also booked their spot in the first cup final of the season, the MTN 8.
The impressive start has seen the Soweto side being among the the pacesetters at the top of the table, collecting 8 points from 4 games and sitting in position 4.
On the other side of the pitch will be a Baroka side that is not too far off from the top of the table. In fact, The Mashite based side have been on top of the table in the first two rounds of the season after winning their first two games and they are still in the thick of things as a win will put them second on the leg, at least temporarily.
Baroka are currently in 5th position, with 7 points, 1 behind their opponents today, which makes today’s game a more interesting one.
However, Baroka are on a 2 game winless streak after a 1 – 1 home draw with Lamontville Golden Arrows and a 1 – 0 defeat at Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila last time out.
The game at the Orlando Stadium in Soweto will kick off at 15 : 30 and can been seen LIVE on SuperSport PSL And SABC 1.
