Orlando Pirates vs Chippa United Predictions


Based on historical head-to-head records and recent form, there is only one winner in this match. Chippa significantly weakened their squad with January sales. I’m backing a Bucs win to nil.

Orlando Pirates Form & Team News


After a run of five wins in six matches with just one goal leaked, Bucs ended 2023 poorly. They lost successive league matches with six goals shipped. 

After a 0-0 draw away at Richards Bay, they picked up a 2-0 home win over Moroka Swallows and a 1-0 home victory vs TS Galaxy. A 2-1 win away at Golden Arrows preceded the two setbacks. 

They were beaten 3-1 at SuperSport United and 3-2 at home to Stellenbosch. They led 2-0 after 68 minutes in the latter defeat.

Coach Jose Riveiro is without Paseka Mako in defence. Thabang Monare, Evidence Makgopa and Nkosinathi Sibisi won’t feature after AFCON duty.  

Right winger Thabiso Lebitso and midfielder Thalente Mbatha were signed in the January transfer window. Thembinkosi Lorch was sold to Mamelodi Sundowns.
