City have not been at their best at home of late. Having played a big match on Wednesday and having to fly back, they may not be fully focused on this one. Pirates are playing well in away matches and I am tipping them to win.

Head to Head


These sides sit at 2-2 across their four meetings in the past with no matches ending in draws.

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

Cape Town City Form


Cape Town City won their last match to reach the MTN8 final. After a 0-0 home draw in the first leg against Swallows where they produced 2.1 xG, they lost 3-0 at home to Stellenbosch after two late goals.

City then faced Swallows in a league match and drew 0-0 on their travels with few chances on offer.

In their last match, City thrashed Swallows 4-0 away in the second leg in a match which was 0-0 after 40 minutes. Bradley Ralani scored twice, Fagrie Lakay netted once and substitute Edmilson Dove added a fourth in the last minute.

Cape Town City Injuries & Team News


City have a fully fit squad to choose. Coach Eric Tinkler could rotate from the cup semi-final with winger Craig Martin and midfielder Mpho Makola coming in.

Edmilson Dove is back after a year on the sidelines and he could start at left wingback with Terrence Mashego rested.

Orlando Pirates Form


Pirates saw a four match unbeaten run ended by a defeat in their last match. The team had looked in improved form under co-coaches Fadlu Davids and Mandla Ncikazi.

A 2-2 home draw against Stellenbosch with ten men was followed by a 0-0 stalemate at Marumo Gallants and a narrow 1-0 home win against Swallows. A 3-1 win at Chippa United came next having trailed 1-0.

Their last match a 2-0 home loss to Mamelodi Sundowns after two second half goals. Pirates rarely threatened their rock solid opponents.

Orlando Pirates Injuries & Team News


Goalkeeper Richard Ofori remains out injured so Siyabonga Mpontshane will deputise. Attacking midfielders Thembinkosi Lorch and Terrence Dzvukamanja are also absent.

Striker Zakhele Lepasa remains on the treatment table. Tshegofatso Mabasa will lead the line.
