Head to Head


Orlando Pirates hold a 1-0 advantage against Marumo Gallants in two previous meetings with one draw.

Their last encounter ended 0-0 at Pirates in June 2021.

Marumo Gallants Form


Marumo Gallants have changed their name this season from TTM. Marumo were in a relegation dogfight for most of the season but four wins in their final 10 matches saw them secure a 12th place finish.

Despite their league struggles, Marumo Gallants did beat Chipp United 1-0 to secure the 2020/21 Nedbank Cup trophy. Gallants final three league matches last season all ended 0-0, one of which was away at Pirates.

Gallants began this season with a 2-0 defeat at Baroka FC. In a trend that continued from last season, Marumo never really threatened going forward.

Marumo Gallants Team News


Gallants lost top defender Alfred Ndengane and right-backs Nicholus Lukhubeni and Diamond Thopola in the transfer window.

Captain Lehlohonolo Nonyane went off injured in the last match and could miss out. Maboke Matlakala should lead the line with Lerato Lamola doubtful.

Orlando Pirates Form


Orlando Pirates finished third in the PSL last season after failing to score in nine of their 30 matches. 

After losing their opening match of this season, coach Josef Zinnbauer resigned. That defeat came at the hands of Swallows (2-1) in the MTN8 Cup.

Pirates' first match of the current campaign saw them draw 2-2 against Stellenbosch. At 1-1 Ntsikelelo Nyauza was sent off leaving the Bucs to fight with a man down.

Despite being a man down Goodman Mosele managed to give Pirates a 2-1 lead. It was a short lived lead as Stellenbosch equalised soon after, and could have won it had they not been wasteful in the latter stages.

Orlando Pirates Team News


Pirates are without the suspended Ntsikelelo Nyauza in defence after his red card against Stellenbosch.

Bucs have a raft of injuries to deal with including striker Zakhele Lepasa and attacking midfielder Thembinkosi Lorch. Paseka Mako and Innocent Maela are absent at left-back so Tebogo Tlolane could deputise there.
