The Mighty Amakhosi and The Sea Robbers will face each other for the first time in an official game this season. Fans of both teams are waiting in anticipation for Saturday afternoon’s MTN8 First Leg. Pirates’ supporters will be looking to revenge their defeat in The Carling Black Label Cup not so long ago, while Chiefs Faithfuls will be happy to continue their winning streak. Pirates is however in great form after their 4-1 victory over Egyptian giants, Zamalek.
Pirates captain, Lucky “The Khaling” Lekgwathi promised the fans that the team will put on a great fight on Saturday. Lekgwathi said they will not allow Chiefs to beat them in two consecutive games. His words make me personally want to be at FNB Stadium come Saturday. With R8 Million at stake, it will be interesting to see the two Soweto giants battle their hearts out. I’m sure that Chiefs is also up for the challenge, looking at their current performance and new interesting signings. The question is..WHO WILL IT BE????
