Pirates & Chiefs XIs Announced

The wait is over, this Saturday sees the first league meeting of the season between Orlando Pirates and Kaizer Chiefs, and both teams have already confirmed their XIs.

The derby will always be a massive fixture, regardless of when it’s played, but this one is particularly mouthwatering for fans, as it comes off the back of two years without them going to watch it live at the stadium.

The first Soweto derby of the season comes as Jose Riveiro’s side, unbeaten in their previous four games, face Anthur Zwane’s charges, who have won two and drawn two in their last four matches.

The match kicks off at 15h30 at FNB Stadium and will be televised on SuperSport PSL 202 and SABC 1.
