OrlandoPiratesDSTV Premiership action returns at the weekend and our featured match on Saturday 21st November sees Orlando Pirates host Supersport United

 

 

 

Orlando Pirates

 

After 3 rounds of league matches Pirates are unbeaten with 1 win and 2 draws against their name. They started with a 1-1 draw away to Amazulu and then played out another 1-1 draw at home to Stellenbosch. The Bucs scored first in both of those matches only to be pegged back by half time but in their most recent league outing they took the lead against Bloem Celtic and it proved to be the only goal of the game.

A solid if unspectacular start to the league campaign has been supplemented by progress to the MTN8 final. Pirates first beat Cape Town City 1-0 in Orlando and then won both legs of the semi final against Kaizer Chiefs, 3-0 and 2-0. Pirates will take on Celtic in the final next month.

Supersport United

 

Supersport are 11 point better off than Pirates with 2 wins and 1 defeat to show for their efforts so far. They have won both their home games, against Leopards (2-0) and Stellenbosch (1-0) but either side of that they went down 3-1 at Golden Arrows.

In the MTN8 Supersport beat Tshakhuma (£-2) but lost the semi final 2-1 on aggregate to Bloem Celtic, drawing the first leg 1-1 before losing the return 1-0.

 

Recent Head to Head

 

The first league meeting last season ended 3-0 to Supersport in Tshwane but Pirates took revenge with a 2-1 win in the return in Orlando.

 

 

The Betting

 

In the early betting Pirates can be backed at around 12/10 to win the game, the draw is trading at around 2/1 and Supersport are trading at around 5/2

A game of goals or more is priced at 29/20 and it's 21/20 for both teams to score.

Verdict:

 

These 2 sides have served up some entertainment in recent season and although Pirates league matches have been tight I fancy we can see both sides register a goal here.
