MTN SEMIFINAL | Predicted starting Berth For Orlando Pirates vs Mamelodi Sundowns

Orlando Pirates

This blockbuster MTN8 semifinal between Pirates and Sundowns offers up plenty of intriguing subplots for Mzansi to enjoy. Could we see a second Buccaneers debut for Kermit Erasmus, and Ndabayithethwa Ndlondlo in a Pirates jersey for the first time?

The last meeting between these sides in the MTN8 was in fiery semifinal in the 2011-12 campaign, a contest that Pirates won over two legs.

MTN8 SEMIFINAL: PIRATES VS SUNDOWNS

PREDICTED XIS

Pirates (3-4-3): Ofori; Xoki, Sibisi, Maela; Shandu, Timm, Ndlondlo, Hotto; Pule, Lepasa, Makaringe

Sundowns (4-3-3): Williams; Mudau, Kekana, De Reuck, Ngobeni; Mbule, Jali, Mokoena; Shalulile, Zwane, Allende.

PIRATES VS SUNDOWNS: LAST FIVE MEETINGS

  • Sundowns 4-1 Pirates
  • Pirates 0-2 Sundowns
  • Pirates 0-3 Sundowns
  • Sundowns 4-1 Pirates
  • Sundowns 1-0 Pirates

It’s safe to say that Sundowns have overwhelmingly had the better of the pair’s recent meetings, with five wins from the last five. Will the Buccaneers have their day this weekend? It should be a cracker between the last two MTN8 winners.

Kickoff is 15:30 on Saturday from Orlando Stadium.
