  • Orlando Pirates have seen over 3.5 goals in 4 of their last 5 matches against Cape Town City (Premier Soccer League).

Head to Head


Orlando Pirates hold an 8-6 advantage against Cape Town City over their previous 23 clashes with nine draws.

Their last meeting was in December as Cape Town City led twice at home but could only draw 2-2 with Pirates.

Orlando Pirates Form


Orlando Pirates have been in inconsistent form all season with five draws at home in eight league matches. They sit 5th in the Premier Soccer League table with an eight point gap to the leaders having played one more match.

Having lost 2-0 away Black Leopards, Pirates drew 0-0 at home with Golden Arrows before a 1-0 away win at Maritzburg United. That was followed by a poor 1-1 home draw with Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila before beating Kaizer Chiefs 2-1 at home in the Soweto derby.

A very poor performance followed to lose 2-0 away to Golden Arrows. In their last match, Orlando Pirates beat lower league side Uthongathi 1-0 at home in the Nedbank Cup as Gabadinho Mhango was on target.

Orlando Pirates Injuries & Team News


Orlando Pirates rested Fortune Makaringe and Vincent Pule in midfield for the last match and both players should return to start this match.

Coach Josef Zinnbauer is still missing Tshegofatso Mabasa and Zakhele Lepasa in attack so has to decide between starting Gabadinho Mhango up front or using Thembinkosi Lorch as a false nine.

Cape Town City Form


Cape Town City sit 6th in the PSL table having won six and drawn five of their 14 matches thus far. They boast the division’s best attack but have one of the worst goals conceded records.

City started 2021 in slow fashion as they lost 3-2 away to Swallows, threw away a 2-0 lead at home to Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila at home to draw 2-2 and then going down 2-1 at home to Kaizer Chiefs. The side have returned to form of late as they won 2-0 away at Black Leopards, 4-2 at home against Golden Arrows and then 1-1 at Baroka.

In their last match, Cape Town City thrashed Bloemfontein Celtic 4-0 at home in the Nedbank Cup as Tashreeq Morris scored a hattrick and Thado Nodada scored the other.

Cape Town City Injuries & Team News


Cape Town City welcomed back Abbubaker Mobara in defence in their last match but are still without Edmilson Dove at left back.

Both Bradley Ralani and Justin Shonga were rested in attack for the last match and should be recalled for this one. Aubrey Ngoma is still absent on the wing.
