Orlando Pirates return to Loftus Versfeld for the first time since their 6-0 defeat to Mamelodi Sundowns at the same venue in February 2017.
Micho Sredojevic will be without his captain, Thabo Matlaba, through suspension, but he’s got more capable players to fill in the void against a very formidable Sundowns side.
The Brazilians head into the match enjoying a four-point lead at the top of the log, while Pirates find themselves fifth on the table with 23 points.
Pitso Mosimane’s men are strong favourites to claim all three points in front of their home fans in Tshwane.
Sundowns have not lost to the Sea Robbers since August 2014.
In fact, the Soweto giants have not beaten Sundowns in the last seven official matches. Sundowns have registered five wins, while the other two matches ended in draws.
WHEN IS THE MATCH?
Kick-off for the league match between Sundowns and Pirates is at 15:30 on Saturday, 13 January 2018.
