Enyimba vs Orlando Pirates Predictions

Enyimba have had a poor group stage thus far but have won their last two matches at home, where they are formidable. Pirates only need a draw to progress or a one goal defeat by a greater scoreline than 2-1. They have seen a dip in form but I am tipping Pirates to get the point they need to reach the quarter-finals.

  • Enyimba have lost 3 of their last 4 matches (CAF Confederations Cup).
  • Enyimba are unbeaten in their last 18 home matches (all competitions).
  • Orlando Pirates have drawn 3 of their last 5 matches (2 wins)(CAF Confederations Cup).
  • Orlando Pirates have drawn their last 2 matches (all competitions).

Head to Head

Pirates hold a 2-0 advantage against Enyimba across their three previous meetings with one draw.

The sides last met in March as Orlando Pirates won 2-1 at home.

Enyimba Form

Enyimba have won two and lost three of their CAF Confederations Cup group matches and sit third in the table. A win against Pirates would put them level with their opponents and maybe require head to head to settle who qualifies depending on Ah Ahli Benghazi’s result.

Enyimba comes into this match in poor form having lost four of their last seven matches including a 2-1 defeat at Pirates. They beat Dakkada 1-0 and ES Setif 2-1 before losing 3-0 at the same opponents.

Their last match saw a 1-0 defeat at Al Ahli Benghazi.

Enyimba Injuries & Team News

Enyimba will be without defender Timothy Danladi for this match due to suspension after being sent off against Benghazi.

Coach Fatai Ojo has a full squad available otherwise.

Orlando Pirates Form

Orlando Pirates sit top of their CAF Confederations Cup group having won two and drawn three of their last matches. They need a draw to guarantee qualification to the quarter-finals.

Pirates have hit a dip in form of late with just two in their last seven matches. After a 1-0 loss to Kaizer Chiefs, they drew 0-0 at Al Ahli Benghazi before beating them 3-0 at home.

Their last three matches saw a 2-0 win against Maritzburg United, a 0-0 draw at ES Setif and a 1-1 draw with Swallows.

Orlando Pirates Injuries & Team News

Pirates are again expected to be without top goalkeeper Richard Ofori, with veteran Wayne Sandilands expected to cover.

Thembinkosi Lorch and Terrence Dzvukamanja are injured in forward areas but Kabelo Dlamini returns having been suspended for the last match.
