Absa premiership defence kicks off against the Buccaneers

The first game since the resumption of football is done and dusted and the Brazilians are through to the Nedbank Cup Final after beating Bidvest Wits by three goals to two. The focus shifts to the Absa Premiership title defence as Mamelodi Sundowns do battle with the Orlando Pirates at Dobsonville stadium.

Clashes against “The Buccaneers” are always highly contested as the numbers show that out of the seven Absa Premiership games played, Masandawana has won three with Pirates winning two and playing to two draws. There is a four points difference between the two sides, three points for the Brazilians will see them cut the gap between Kaizer Chiefs to just one point.

The match kicks off at 18:00 at Dobsonville Stadium and will be broadcasted on SS4.

    Pirates has speed , we need to play Arendse and Lebusa or Cotzee at the central defense and start Makralwa up front.

    Ba fwe2 where is Guston he was not injured but suspension kept him out of the game…the bench..hayi khona…yes Lakay scored but not to start today…Maboe upfront..this thing ye falls no 9…


    I think we hv 2 technical teams,one which is clever nd the othe one which is clueless about soccer,how on earth did Kekana play 95 minutes when he was losing the ball throughout the game.In th 2nd half he nearly cost us a game.U can watch the video,during the 2nd he made zero complete pass.If we are going to make skeem saam at the expense of the team,then we are going to kiss this easy to win league.We didn’t deserve this point.U can’t rest a young Lekhuleni nd let a very old player play 190 minutes in 3 days,he is not a machine he also need to be rested.We don’t a player of a season coz that’s ur plan but,we need a league cup period.
