Head to Head

This is the first meeting between these two sides.

Orlando Pirates Form

Orlando Pirates come into this match placed seventh on the PSL table with just two wins from their seven league matches. They have however only conceded six goals in those matches with one defeat.

Since going down 2-0 at home to Mamelodi Sundowns, Pirates have drawn three matches and won one. A 1-1 draw at Cape Town City in the league was followed by a credible 0-0 result against Diables Noirs in the CAF Confederations Cup.

Another goalless draw followed at Maritzburg United. Over the weekend Pirates beat Diables Noirs 1-0 at home to progress in the Confederations Cup. Happy Jele secured the victory with his 18th minute strike.

Orlando Pirates Injuries & Team News

Deon Hotto came off the bench and impressed over the weekend. He could start this match but with no injuries, Pirates could go with the same side.

Royal AM Form

Royal AM have made an impressive start to top flight football. They are currently third in the Premier Soccer League with four wins in their seven matches.

Stretching back to last season, Royal AM are in superb away form with only one defeat in their last 12 fixtures. The new boys to the PSL are also unbeaten in their last five league matches.

Royal AM defeated Chippa United 1-0 at home, Kaizer Chiefs 4-1 away, TS Galaxy 4-2 at home and Maritzburg United 2-1 on home soil. 

That run looked to be coming to a crushing end last time out. Royal AM were 2-0 down against Marumo Gallants after 73 minutes. Sepana Letsoalo however scored from the spot before Sedwyn George stole a point in the 94th minute.

Sedwyn George will be hoping for an opportunity to start after his heroics off the bench in Royal AM’s last match. There could also be start for Lantshene Phalane after his impressive display of the bench.

Orlando Pirates are very solid at the back and should be able to keep Royal AM at bay. I am backing this fixture to end in a 1-1 draw.
