Soweto derby day is here! We predict how we think the match between Orlando Pirates and Kaizer Chiefs will end, who will earn the rights to rule Soweto?
PREDICTION: PIRATES VS CHIEFS
Recent history in this encounter favours Amakhosi but the Bucs have been far more convincing in most of their matches.
Chiefs come off a win and the Bucs come off a draw. However, Chiefs scored in the 95th minute to score their first goal in three matches while Pirates came off scoring 6 in the CAF Confederation Cup.
Baxter has never lost to Pirates in seven attempts. He seems to have the recipe for success against the Buccaneers. Pirates have not lost a match in the PSL since their 4-1 loss against Mamelodi Sundowns on 17 December 2021.
Amakhosi have not lost a DStv Premiership encounter since their 1-0 loss to MaMkhize’s Royal AM.
That means, both sides are undefeated in 2022 with their records, bragging rights, history and the right to rue Soweto at stake!
More than that, the derby has now turned into a CAF Champions League play-off match! With everything to play for and everything to lose, this is set up to be war on the field!
PREDICTION: ORLANDO PIRATES 1-1 KAIZER CHIEFS.
It will take a moment of magic or an absolute stunner to win this one but we think the two teams will be even on the day.
