Orlando Pirates’ line-up will be selected by a fans’ voting system. Four new signings have arrived but none have been voted into the starting XI as it stands.
Forward Monnapule Saleng could make his debut from the bench. Newly signed midfielder Goodman Mosele is at the Olympics so will not feature.

Chiefs finished eighth in the Premier Soccer League last season after a very poor season that led to coach Gavin Hunt being sacked. They finished runners up in the CAF Champions League.
The AmaKhosi finished the league season with consecutive wins under caretaker coach Arthur Zwane before Stuart Baxter was appointed. A 1-0 win at Wydad Casablanca and a 0-0 draw at home in the second leg saw Chiefs reach the CAF Champions League final.
They lost 3-0 in the continental showpiece to Al Ahly as midfielder Happy Mashiane was red carded on the stroke of half-time.
