The last time these two sides met in Tshwane, it was Pirates who walked away with a resounding 3-1 win, ending Sundowns’ recent dominance in the fixture.
However, that defeat to the Buccaneers was interestingly Sundowns’ last defeat in the league.
Since then Sundowns have gone 22 league games without tasting defeat. This will certainly motivate Pitso Mosimane and his troops to keep their run going and they will have a point to prove to the Soweto giants.
Nonetheless, both sides have been touted as favourites to win the Premier Soccer League (PSL) title this season especially after their battle last season, and with the league title race beginning to take shape, Sundowns and Pirates will look to use the match as an opportunity to steer themselves towards glory.
The gap between log leaders Pirates and third placed Sundowns is just five points and the Tshwane giants in particular will be eager to cut Bucs’ lead down.
WHEN IS THE MATCH?
The match will kick off at 15h30 on Saturday, the 10th of November 2018.
