β˜ οΈπŸ”΅ Our Pirates vs CT City starting line-up predictions: City to unleash three ex-Bucs players

Orlando Pirates against Cape Town City is never a fixture of low excitement.

The last two battles ended 2-2.

To our delight, the two sides take to the grass again in Soweto this afternoon at 3pm. Today is about trying to jump to fifth spot from the two team's low 10th & 11th respective positions.

To add more spice, City have several former Pirates players with a point to prove (yes, even if they’ll always deny it).

What are our starting line-up expectations?

Pirates

The Buccaneers come off a crazy 4-3 loss to Bidvest Wits. Four goals conceded makes it easy for anyone to expect one or two changes in that defence. But we expect coach Rhulani to keep the same attack, especially Tshegofatso Mabasa (three goals in three games).

Line-up prediction:

Dele, Mbekile, Jele, Ndengane, Maela, Nyatama, Mlambo, Lorch, Makaringe, Ndlovu, Mabasa.

City

Benni McCarthy is not breathing easy. The Citizens have an awful form of five games without a win. And what a chance it is to turn things around against Pirates in Soweto?

As most often we see all over the world, the opposition's ex-players are in for getting a chance to play. Today, we’re talking Kermit Erasmus, Mpho Makola, Riyaad Norodien, coach Benni but not Abbubaker Mobara (injured). 

Predicted line-up:

Leeuwenburg, Mkhize, Fillies, Edmilson, Seedat, Nodada, Makola, Norodien, Martin, Ralani, Erasmus.
