The South African Premier Soccer League is back in action with another set of matches this week as Orlando Pirates take on Moroka Swallows on Wednesday. Both teams have good players in their ranks and will want to win this game.

Moroka Swallows are in 14th place in the South African Premier Division and have struggled this season. The Swallows suffered a 1-0 defeat against Marumo Gallants last week and will need to bounce back this game.

Orlando Pirates, on the other hand, are in third place in the league table at the moment and have been impressive this year. The Buccaneers eased past TS Galaxy in their previous game and will want a similar result this week.

Orlando Pirates have excellent players in their ranks but are yet to hit their stride this season. The Buccaneers have flattered to deceive over the past month and will want to prove their mettle in this fixture.

Moroka Swallows can pull off an upset on their day and have troubled their opponents in the past. Orlando Pirates are the better team at the moment, however, and should be able to win this game.
