3 Way - Orlando Pirates Fc 37/50

The last time these two teams met in the league it ended in a one all draw. Orlando Pirates dominated position away from home, in addition to scoring first in the match after a period of sustained position from Chippa United. Coach Morgan Mammila opted for three substitutions at half time bringing on Martin, Marian and Memel to try turn the game around and they almost succeeded. Pirates had 5 yellow games in that clash and found them selves close to losing a play on several occasions.

in the league at the moment, Orlando Pirates are 3 points behind Stellenbosch FC who are sitting in second place. Chippa United, however, find themselves in 10th a single point behind Kaizer Chiefs, and Polokwane City. With no silverware to fight for in the league, one may argue that both teams have nothing to lose. Especially taking into consideration that both sides will meet again in four days time in the DSTV Premiership.

Orlando Pirates have a run of 5 wins in a row, and no loses in their last 6 matches, including a clean sheet in their last three matches in a row. They managed to keep Cape Town City, Royal Am and Amazulu out, all the while finding the back of the net themselves. Chippa United have struggled since, Defeating TS Galaxy to book a spot in the semi-finals. They have played 3 matches, winning one, and losing two in a row against Amazulu and Swallows. One positive from this run of games is that, their one win came against a Supersports united, who until January was one of the in form teams in the league and considered one of the giants of South African football. They are not quite the Giant slayers but they'll be hoping they can do to pirates what they did to Kaizer Chiefs in April.
