Mamelodi Sundowns vs Orlando Pirates Preview: 3 Points needed for both clubs
Earlier, Briefly News reported that Mamelodi Sundowns and Orlando Pirates will be facing off in the DStv Premiership this weekend. The encounter will be a mouthwatering one, as both clubs form part of the "big three" in South African football.
Currently, Mamelodi Sundowns have not lost any matches in the league and will be looking to build from there. Orlando Pirates, however, are coming off the back of a convincing win against Chippa United, so it's not going to be easy for Sundowns.
