When is the clash between Mamelodi Sundowns and Orlando Pirates, and how can I watch?

10:59 GMT 08/11/2018
Oupa Manyisa and Thabo Matlaba - Orlando Pirates v Mamelodi Sundowns
One of the most highly anticipated fixtures on the South African football calendar will take place on Saturday afternoon in Tshwane

The rivalry between Johannesburg and Tshwane will be brought to the fore on Saturday as Mamelodi Sundowns look to get their revenge when they come up against a revived Orlando Pirates.

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.
