Pirates’ Next 5 PSL Matches That Could Make Them Rise Top Of PSL Log Ahead Of Chiefs and Sundowns

What the next five PSL matches for the Pirates can do to propel them to the top of the PSL log, above the Chiefs and Sundowns. 

There are FIVE exciting events coming up this week related to pirates, including Dan Dance and Hunt. 

There is no time for Orlando Pirates players to stew over their defeat over the weekend. The men under Jose Riveiro's employ had a full schedule this week. 

Orlando's Pirates are taken by surprise by Chippa United. 

On Sunday, a South African news outlet reported that despite dominating play, Daine Klate's Chilli Boys, represented by the Sea Robbers, were ultimately defeated by the visiting team. 

It's hard to explain why we've only scored one goal in these two games," Riveiro told The Sowetan (against Swallows and Chippa). 

"We didn't create many scoring opportunities against Stellenbosch, but it's frustrating that we've managed just one goal in the other 180. 

"Although we dominated possession and attempted 17 shots today (against Chippa), only one was on target. 

The Spanish player stated, "The figures reflect how hard we are working to make chances, but the last touch is the hardest part." 

The giants from Soweto had to get up and get ready for their next tasks in two different provinces very soon. 


Durban's Moses Mabhida Stadium will host the match against Dan Malesela's Royal AM on Wednesday. 

Since Kwame Preprah struggled in the loss against Chippa, Coach Riveiro will likely shuffle the offensive lineup again. 

On Sunday, they'll go to Tshwane to take on SuperSport United, Gavin Hunt's new club. 

Fans are hoping the Buccaneers can turn things around after missing numerous scoring opportunities inside the penalty area through their first three games. 

Last season's starting wing back, Paseka Mako, is expected to make his debut this year. This is due to the fact that Tebogo Tlolane has proven he is unfit to serve as Deon Hotto's backup. 

Despite being mainstays last year, Riveiro has yet to start either Mako or Fortune Makaringe. Tweet by the Orlando Pirates' official account (@OrlandoPirates) with this image. 

Do we have the chance of a surprise signing this week? Anything may happen at any time on the Pirates.
