Orlando Pirates There will be FIVE intriguing events this week.
Orlando Pirates' first game of the year, despite only defeating Swallows FC by a score of 1-0, showed signs of a team that would be fun to watch this year.
THE ORLANDO PIRATES PERFORMED A STUNNING ATTACKING ACTIVITY AGAINST SWALLOWS.
Statistics show that throughout the previous weekend, Jose Riveiro's squad had a record-breaking 12 shots on goal, with seven of those being successful.
Therefore, it is predicted that the Sea Robbers will keep making the most of those chances, starting in their forthcoming game on Wednesday against Stellenbosch FC.
Let's examine the five things we anticipated for this week.

OUR FIVE EXPECTATIONS
Although Riveiro has seriously questioned any more signings, you never know with the Bucs. Both a senior Swallows defender and a Ghanaian international are still being pursued by the club.
Following their electrifying performance on Saturday, the devoted Buccaneers supporters are anticipated to pack Danie Craven Stadium on Wednesday night.
With the exception of Miguel Timm, three new players made their debuts during the Swallows game. It is anticipated that the highly regarded midfielder will play against Stellenbosch. Evidence Makgopa, a fellow new face, has reportedly suffered injuries.
The team wore its new home jersey because last weekend's game was a home contest. The new away white and gray uniform will be worn for the first time on Wednesday.
Riveiro may choose to go with the same set-up or try a different one following a new 3-5-2 formation with full-backs Thabiso Monyane and Deon Hotto.
Before Wednesday's game at 19:30, the club will take a flight to the Western Cape.
