  • Stellenbosch FC will host Orlando Pirates in the standout fixture of tonight's DStv Premiership line-up
  • The Maroons started the season off with a draw, while the Buccaneers were victorious last weekend
  • The matches between the sides last season were high-scoring affairs, and more of the same is expected

Stellenbosch FC and Orlando Pirates will headline tonight's DStv Premiership fixtures.

The Maroons will host the Buccaneers at the Danie Craven Stadium in what is expected to be a full house. Stellenbosch drew 0-0 in their season opener against Marumo Gallants, while Pirates edged Swallows FC 1-0 last season.

Stellenbosch coach Steve Barker said to The Citizen:

“They come off a win so they will be looking to take that momentum to Wednesday. But at the same time we have to impose ourselves, it is our home game. We have to make sure that we put in a performance that puts us in a position to take all three points.”

According to SuperSport, Pirates coach Jose Riveiro ominously said:

"I would like to score more goals and be seated there in the last 10 minutes of the game more relaxed. You can be sure if we continue to create this amount of chances, it’s going to happen. You can be sure we will score more than one goal.”

The match will kick off at 7.30pm CAT.
