Enthusiastic soccer supporters have already started making their way to the FNB Stadium ahead of the highly anticipated Soweto Derby between two Soweto giants Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates on Saturday.
While the encounter has been labelled the ‘Drawby’ by some fans, others are optimistic that this match will produce several goals.

Johannesburg Metro Police Department (JMPD) has put in place strict traffic control measures around the FNB Stadium and has urged those coming to watch the match to make use of Reya Vaya or use public transport.
Ticketless soccer fans have been urged to avoid making their way to the FNB Stadium as no tickets will be sold at the stadium but to rather watch the spectacle unfold on television.
The last time the two Soweto giants met was in a league match in March.
Orlando Pirates ran amok and won that match 3-1.
