DStv Premiership: Orlando Pirates v Mamelodi Sundowns – Who’s undefeated streak will end?

The defending champions Mamelodi Sundowns visit Orlando Pirates in the DStv Premiership on Saturday, September 25.

The Buccaneers face the Brazilians with far more than Soweto and Mamelodi pride on the line...


This match puts two unbeaten teams against one other in a huge top-of-the-table showdown.

Sundowns are currently in first place in the PSL rankings, with 10 points from four games. After already facing last season's runners-up, AmaZulu, as well as Kaizer Chiefs, a win for Sundowns will extend their advantage at the top.


Masandawana has started the season well with three victories and a draw. The Pirates have won two games and drawn two, but they have begun to get traction. Their recent back-to-back triumphs give them confidence going into this match.

Prepare to see Rhulani Mokwena and Manqoba Mngqithi take on Mandla Ncikazi and Fadlu Davids in a battle of the co-coaches.


It's not every day that you get to see two coaches go head-to-head.

The Buccaneers' camps have been filled with controversy, with Gabadinho Mhango and Ben Motshwari getting into legal trouble.


The Pirates will be hoping that this does not cause them to lose time in their preparations. If the Soweto Giants want to break Sundowns' hot streak, they will have to be at their best. The Brazilians haven't looked like they're going to lose yet.

They have class all over the field and will be favorites, but the Pirates are at home and on a roll.


The league is on the Bucs' side, but I wouldn't bet on a tie!
