Soweto is divided over who will win the derby and crucial ABSA Premiership match between Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates at the FNB Stadium on Saturday.
However, most of the supporters the SABC spoke to picked Pirates to record another win over the “Phefeni Glamour Boys”.
If Pirates win the league encounter, it will be their fourth win in a row.
An Orlando Pirates fan says: “You know Pirates is the team to beat Chiefs, I am here at Orlando with my family so we say Pirates all the way.”
Another Orlando Pirates fan says: “You see now I am wearing black and it is the colours of my team.”
Amakhosi supporters stood up for their team, but they weren’t as convincing as their bitter rivals.
A Kaizer Chiefs die hard supporter says: “I am a Chiefs supporter, I believe in my team and I know it will come through”
Another Kaizer Chiefs supporter says: “Definitely Chiefs is going to take it this time around, all eyes on Chiefs and let’s give them another chance”
The odds are against Amakhosi again. They have not won an official match against Pirates since December 2014.
Chiefs midfielder Willard Katsande says victory is non-negotiable.
“Obviously we lost the last three games of which it’s not a good feeling when it comes to the history of these games. Unfortunately what we can do is that we don’t lose because this game is very important.”
Pirates defender Happy Jele says his team must not get carried away after their three successive wins over their Soweto neighbours.
“For us what keeps us down I think is the commitment that we always put at training, we work hard and we humble ourselves to get a result each and every game”
The kick-off is at 3:30pm on Saturday afternoon.
