ANALYST

The South African Premier Soccer League is back in action with another set of matches this week as Orlando Pirates take on Stellenbosch on Wednesday. Both teams have been impressive this season and will want to win this game.

Stellenbosch are in second place in the South African Premier Division and have been exceptional this season. The home side played out a 2-2 draw with AmaZulu last week and will want to bounce back in this match.

Orlando Pirates, on the other hand, are in seventh place in the league table at the moment and are yet to hit their stride this year. The Buccaneers were held to a 0-0 stalemate by Golden Arrows in their previous game and have a point to prove in this fixture.
