Pirates & CT City Starting XIs Announced

Orlando Pirates and Cape Town City have announced their starting line-ups for this evening’s DStv Premiership encounter at Orlando Stadium.

Pirates return to the domestic league after booking a place in the next round of the CAF Champions League, beating Comoros side Djabal FC both home away.

The Buccaneers have been scoring goals for fun this season, having netted 14 goals in all competitions with 12 of those being scored in Orlando Stadium.

The man on form is Zakhele Lepasa, who has scored eight goals in all competitions for Pirates but just two of those have come in the league.

Meanwhile, City have suffered back-to-back league defeats against Supersport United and Sekhukhune United. They had a good start winning two games but all that seems to have vanished away and it’s three successive losses, including the MTN8 quarter-final defeat to Kaizer Chiefs.

Their main man Khanyisa Mayo is yet to find the back of the net this season after four league games and one MTN8 quarter-final.

The Sea Robbers have been dominating this fixture, especially playing at home, winning three of the last four clashes at Orlando Stadium.

Here is how they line up:

Pirates XI: tbc.


CT City XI: Keet, Mkhize, Cupido, Fielies, Nyama, Ambina, Mokeke, Goedeman, Gonzalez, Kutumela, Pacienca

Subs: Mpandle, Rhodes, Gordinho, Nodada, Mayo, Van Heerden, Mokhudane, Sifumba, Zapata
