Orlando Pirates look to secure their spot for continental competition next season when they take on Stellenbosch FC in the final round of PSL fixtures…
Orlando Pirates are one of the PSL teams in the hunt for a third place finish on the PSL log when they take on Stellenbosch FC on Saturday. Kick off at the Ellis Park Stadium is at 15:30 South African time.
Pirates kept up their hopes of qualifying for African football next season by claiming a second successive PSL league win when they beat Maritzburg United 1-0 on Wednesday.
A late goal by Frank Mhango helped the Bucs sneak in the victory.
The Buccaneers, who are one point adrift of third place heading into this final round, have claimed 29 points from 14 home matches.
Stellenbosch racked up a third draw on the trot and extended their unbeaten run to five PSL fixtures with a 1-1 draw against AmaZulu on Wednesday. Ashley Du Preez’s late strike spared the team’s blushes.
The Cape side has claimed just 13 points from 14 away matches in the 2019/20 campaign, enduring a rather bumpy ride in their first season in South Africa’s top flight.

In head-to-head stats, Pirates and Stellenbosch have met in just one previous top-flight league match. That encounter took place earlier this season and saw the Cape side claimed a 1-0 home win at Cape Town Stadium in October 2019 thanks to a goal from Iqraam Rayners.
