Orlando Pirates host Maritzburg United in an ABSA Premiership encounter at Orlando Stadium tonight. The Buccaneers are currently in high spirits after their 4-1 Nedbank Cup victory over Free State Stars on the weekend. However, United are fighting to remain in the top eight.
Orlando Pirates registered a much-needed win when they walloped Free State Stars 4-1 in the Nedbank last 16 on Saturday evening. The Sea Robbers were in an uncompromising mood on the day, and one thing that made their fans smile even more was the performance of their captain, Oupa Manyisa.
Kaizer Chiefs came from behind to claim victory over ABC Motsepe League side Acornbush United in the Nedbank Cup last 16 on Sunday. Amakhosi conceded a first-half goal and only equalised about 10 minutes from full time through substitute Gustavo Paez, who later sealed the victory with a sublime finish.
Mamelodi Sundowns suffered yet another defeat when Pitso Mosimane's charges were sent crashing out of the Last 16 of the Nedbank Cup. Masandawana hosted Golden Arrows at the Lucas Masterpieces Moripe Stadium on Saturday, and the home side seemed to be in control of the encounter, but the Durban club held on to their 66th-minute goal to advance in the competition.
