Chippa United vs Orlando Pirates Predictions
Pirates are playing better and five of their last six league wins have come to nil. They have also won three of their eight PSL matches after drawing at half time.
Chippa are hard to beat at home but don’t score many and have a terrible record against their bogey side, Pirates. I am tipping a narrow victory for the away team.
- Chippa United have failed to score in 4 of their last 8 home matches (Premier Soccer League).
- Chippa United have lost 10 consecutive matches against Orlando Pirates (all competitions).
- Orlando Pirates have won 6 of their last 7 matches (all competitions).
- Orlando Pirates have seen draw HT/win FT for 3 of their 8 wins this season (Premier Soccer League).
Head to Head
Orlando Pirates hold a massive 12-3 advantage against Chippa United over their 16 meetings with just one draw. They have won 10 matches in a row against one of their favourite opponents.
These sides met in November as Pirates won 1-0 at home against ten man Chippa. Fortune Makaringe scored an 86th minute winner.
Chippa United Form
Chippa United have looked more defensively solid since Dan Malesela arrived as coach but they sit 12th in the PSL table and are in a relegation battle. Three points from their last four league matches means they are just four points from the relegation places.
The side have won two of their last 14 in the league. Having initially got a 3-0 win away at Black Leopards under the new coach, Chippa have regressed in recent weeks.
A 2-0 loss at Mamelodi Sundowns was followed by a 1-1 away draw at Bloemfontein Celtic and a 1-1 home draw with TS Galaxy. Chippa drew 0-0 at home with Cape Town City in their last match in the PSL having beaten them 2-1 after extra in the Nedbank Cup four days earlier, also at home.
Chippa United Injuries & Team News
Chippa welcome back Isaac Nhlapo at centre back and Sizwe Mdlinzo in central midfield for this match after suspension. This gives more options but doesn’t strength the starting XI.
It remains to be seen if Dan Malesela will pick an outright striker or go with a false nine.
Orlando Pirates Form
Pirates jumped to 3rd in the PSL table after their win in midweek but although they’re only four points off Mamelodi Sundowns at the top, they have played three matches more.
After an inconsistent season, Pirates have found some momentum of late thanks to some cup wins. They beat Uthongathi 1-0 at home in the Nedbank Cup and won both home and away against Jwaneng Galaxy in the CAF Confederations Cup. They also beat an understrength Maritzburg United 3-1 away in the Nedbank Cup.
Pirates beat Celtic 1-0 in the PSL last time out at home but faced ten men for the entire second half.
Orlando Pirates Injuries & Team News
After a wrath of injuries, things are looking rosier for Pirates in terms of squad options. Tshegofatso Mabasa and Gabadinho Mhango returned as subs in attack for the last match and Thembinkosi Lorch is nearly back too.
Thabang Monare has returned from suspension so the midfield depth has been boosted. He may have to make do with a place on the bench for this match.

Chippa are very tight at the back but Pirates have shown some good form of late. It should be a very tight match. I'm backing Pirates to win by the odd goal.
A second half winner is likely with first halves very tight for both sides.
