18/03/2023: Daily Predictions: DSTV Premiership: Orlando Pirates vs SuperSport United

In a game which will have a big bearing on the race for second place this season, third place Orlando Pirates host Gauteng rivals and second placed SuperSport United at the Orlando Stadium. Matsatsantsa are five points ahead of the Sea Robbers.

The team that finishes second this season will play in next season’s CAF Champions League alongside runaway league leaders Mamelodi Sundowns.

Form Guide

SuperSport are second in the league with 39 points after 22 games. Gavin Hunt’s men have won their last two games on the trot and are also unbeaten in their last six games.

Matsatsantsa last lost when league leaders Mamelodi Sundowns beat them 1-0 in January. This season has been good so far for SuperSport who are rebuilding after several years of mainly mediocre results. They are under the leadership of Hunt who famously won them three consecutive league titles between 2007-2010.

Pirates have been largely inconsistent in the league but it is understandable given that it was known that this season would be one of rebuilding for them. The Sea Robbers are third with 34 points after 22 games. They have won their last two games in all competitions (against Venda and Swallows) and have also won four out of their last five games in all competitions.

Both teams to score-yes. Playabets have this bet at 2.09.

Anytime goal scorers

Orlando Pirates- Monnapule Saleng- This season has seen the 25-year-old establishing himself as one of the most lethal attacking players in the Premiership. His form is red-hot right now and if given a lot of space, he will punish SuperSport. He has scored eight league goals so far.

SuperSport United- Bradley Grobler- Grobler may not have his pace of yesteryear but he remains a reliable option up front for Matsatsantsa. He has scored nine league goals so far this season.
