Since their last (0-0) stalemate against the guests, the Brazilians have played three games, winning all three while finding the back of the net sixteen times.
The Brazilians retain the top spot of the DSTV Premier League table with twenty-two points in nine games. The champions have been a gloom of themselves but somehow managed to be the best side in the league.
Mamelodi Sundowns registered a toothless (0-0) draw on the road against the Buccaneers in the first leg. The home team would have to pull off one of their best performances to knock out this resilient Orlando side.
Despite their inconsistent performances in the league, Orlando Pirates still maintain a spot among the top four on the log. They have won five, drawn four and lost three times in the last twelve games. The Buccaneers sit in the fourth spot on the log with three points behind their opponent.
This season, the Buccaneers moved away from co-coaching and appointed a leader in Riveiro, who didn’t do badly in his previous job in Finland, where he was in charge of FC Inter Turku. Rivero will set up his team for the second leg of the derby match, and we expect to be delighted.
