One of the serious talking points from last night’s Orlando Pirates 1-0 win over Mamelodi Sundowns was not how it took them nine years to beat the Brazilians at Orlando Stadium in the league but the tricks performed by the skillful Fortune Makaringe at centre-line.
Orlando Pirates dropped two valuable points at home when they were held to a goalless draw by Maritzburg United in an Absa Premiership match played at Orlando Stadium on Tuesday night.
Dubbed the traditional home of domestic football, the Orlando Stadium will host SuperSport United and Highlands Park as they battle out for the R8 million-prized MTN8 title on Saturday evening.
History books could well be rewritten when Highlands Park and SuperSport United line up for the MTN8 Final at the Orlando Stadium on Saturday (Kick-off 6pm).
It was dubbed the Miyagi vs Karate Kid contest as the teacher (Steve Komphela) came up against his student (Rhulani Mokwena) but the Orlando Pirates and Golden Arrows game produced a goalless draw in an Absa Premiership game played at Orlando Stadium in Soweto on Wednesday night.
