Both clubs squandered that opportunity on the night, and in specific openings during the game. It wasn't a dull stalemate, but a frustrating one for both sets of fanbases.
As a result Mamelodi Sundowns overtook the leaders, while Pirates and SuperSport United are still playing catch-up.

Tinkler: “Playing Pirates is easy because you don’t have to motivate the players. It’s hard playing FS Stars & Baroka. And that’s where the draw becomes acceptable if you win a game like today. Now we MUST beat those teams.”— Orlando Pirates FC (@orlandopirates) December 5, 2017
