Willard Katsande of Kaizer Chiefs challenged by Xola Mlambo of Orlando Pirates, July 2019
Both sets of fans have had a lot to say ahead of this Soweto Derby in Durban. Here's what is on everyone's mouths

  • Itumeleng Khune, Kaizer Chiefs & Thembinkosi Lorch, Orlando Pirates, November 2018

    Will Pirates continue to dominate Chiefs?

    Kaizer Chiefs have not beaten Orlando Pirates since December 2014. Since then, the two sides have met 10 times with Pirates recording five wins over Chiefs while the other five matches ended in draws. Will the Sea Robbers continue to dominate Amakhosi? 
  • Rhulani Mokwena - Orlando Pirates

    Could this be the beginning of the end for Rhulani?

    Rhulani Mokwena was only given the Pirates coaching job on an interim basis and the team has struggled for consistent results under his watch. A few legends have pointed out where they think the team's struggles lie, and the technical team has been one of those areas. Pirates have already missed out on two major trophies this season, and this could be a third if they lose to Chiefs. Could this then force Dr. Irvin Khoza to hire an experienced coach to take over from Mokwena?  
  • Samir Nurkovic Khama Billiat Lebogang Manyama - Kaizer Chiefs

    Will Pirates stop the unstoppable Chiefs trio?

    Samir Nurkovic, Lebogang Manyama and Khama Billiat have all been Amakhosi's dangermen this season and given Pirates' leaky defence this season, fans are wondering if Rhulani Mokwena will have a plan to stop the trio from running riot against his team.

    Who will benefit from referees' mistakes?

    PSL referees are under immense pressure to lift their game after what has been a terrible start to the season. Chiefs have 'benefitted' from the referees' fair share of mistakes this season as the majority of coaches have stated, but the same can be said about Pirates who beat Highlands Park with an offside goal in midweek. Now, who will benefit in this Soweto Derby or will we see a game with no mistakes from the referees? 
  • Thembinkosi Lorch, Orlando Pirates, September 2019

    Whose trophy drought is likely to last longer?

    Orlando Pirates have not won a major trophy in five seasons while it has been four full seasons without a piece of silverware for the Glamour Boys. However, one Soweto team can go through on Saturday and stand a chance of clinching something before the end of 2019. Who will it be?
