It's war!

South Africa is still shocked with the elections results and we are now divided into two with the Soweto derby taking place this Saturday at the FNB stadium. Kaizer Chiefs going to this match after losing to Stellenbosch fc last weekend while the Buccaneers were able to return from 0-1 to win by 2-1 just before the last whistle.

Amakhosi were the last winners of the derby as they won the Black label cup during the pre-season. Orlando Pirates dominated the official matches for the past 5 years. Coach Baxter will have a hard job of turning the tables as the disappointing results are not ending.

The Buccaneers are also participating in CAF Confederations cup this season and the good news is that most of their injured players are back training with the club. Thembinkosi Lorch and Zakhele Lepasa are the bigger names everyone is waiting for their full return. These players are expected to be available this weekend against Chiefs.

In Egypt coach Pitso Mosimane's side will be tested by their biggest rivals, what is noticeable is that since he joined the club Mosimane is yet to lose a game against Zamalek.
