Kaizer Chiefs & Orlando Pirates, March 2016.
The former Orlando Pirates player knows what he's talking about because he's starred against Kaizer Chiefs in the past

Retired football player Lennox Bacela is quite active on Twitter these days and has made the point that when Orlando Pirates take on Kaizer Chiefs, there's no other game that compares to the importance of this one. Do you agree?

In recent times with Chiefs and Pirates struggling to win silverware, the likes of Mamelodi Sundowns have argued that their games are bigger. Bacela is having none of that.

A week ago the South African national team struggled to get fans at the FNB Stadium for Bafana Bafana against Seychelles in an Africa Cup of Nation qualifier which the hosts won 6-0.

Now we see that the Soweto Derby is already sold out and the game is going to take place next weekend. That underlines the fan's excitement and eagerness to make sure of their seats, compared to the national team.
