Saturday the 25th of September will be a clash of two teams that are currently on form in the DStv Premiership, Mamelodi Sundowns and Orlando Pirates. In a matter of fact Sundowns has come out tops against Orlando Pirates in the past three encounters as they came out victorious against the Buccaneers. This sort of streak alone will be a big motivation for Mamelodi Sundowns to walk in the field with confidence as they will be playing in the home base of the Buccaneers Orlando Stadium.
As early as the season is Mamelodi Sundowns are already appearing as a side that is in perfect form and their recent winning streak is noticeable, on top of that Masandawana are yet to concede goals in the DStv Premiership league, in terms of goals Masandawana has scored six goals which is the same amount of goals that has also been scored by Orlando Pirates. When comparing the defence of both sides Mamelodi Sundowns appear to be superior when compared to the Buccaneers because they are yet to concede in a league match.
Former Mamelodi Sundowns player Brent Carelse is convinced that the Tshwane based outfit will come out victorious against Orlando Pirates, and in some of the reasons he has given is due to the fact that Sundowns is currently sitting comfortably on top of the league and they won't allow any team to stop them, Carelse is also convinced that it will be difficult for the Orlando Pirates attackers to break past the Sundowns defences which has been solid so far.
According to the former Mamelodi Sundowns man he also believes that the unstable defence of Orlando Pirates will cause them problems when they face off against a strong attack of Mamelodi Sundowns. Brent Carelse is obviously speaking in a perspective of a Sundowns fan and because he played for the club before, and in his views he has not counted the fact that Orlando Pirates attackers are well capable to score against any defence as they have already done so in their recent games. If there is one team that is capable of dethroning Sundowns, it will be Orlando Pirates.
