Sports News | Soweto Derby Kaizer Chiefs Vs Orlando Pirates

It's a big day as the Buccaneers and Amakhosi play their first ABSA Premiership match of the season today at FNB Stadium. As it stands, Kaizer Chiefs is coming out of a good victory against Sundowns earlier on the week. Orlando Pirates on the other hand are coming out of a draw but still on top of the PSL.

There's a lot at stake in today's game. I mean there's a point difference between the two.

According to soccerladuma.co.za, from the 8 games that each team has played, Kaizer Chiefs has scored 10 goals whereas Orlando Pirates has only scored 7 goals. Kaizer Chiefs coach Steve Komphela has been under immense pressure to get the team going after a stuttering start which saw them lose to unfancied Baroka FC.

Chiefs fans have been calling for the team's management to fire Komphela if he doesn't deliver the desired goals.

Steve has a lot of pressure, he's under a lot of criticism so he needs good results this afternoon.
