Orlando Pirates Esports

Orlando Pirates will face Lille OSC in four anticipated esports international friendly games on Wednesday.

The aggregate score will determine the winner of the match after the two games on Xbox and two games on PS4.

Shuaib Hassen and Muhammad Faiz Mahomed are set to represent Pirates as the Soweto giants look to return to winning ways.

Bucs were beaten 2-1 by Dutch giants Feyenoord in a best-of-three international friendly game which was played on Sunday.

Hassen and Mahomed will be up against Lille's Stefano Pinna and Ray Ziaah, who are two accomplished gamers.

Pinna is a PS4 player and he clinched the 2018 Fifa eWorld Cup in England, while Xbox player Ziaah won last year's eLigue 1 Champion Spring title.

Lille are coming off a 4-1 aggregate victory over fellow French side Montpellier HSC on April 4 and they will be targeting another win over Pirates.

The four games will be streamed live on the Pirates Twitch tv channel.

The lockdown was imposed in order to stem the spread of the coronavirus in South Africa.
