It’s matchday 29 of the DStv Premiership season. Orlando Pirates will visit TS Galaxy to fight for that second place and CAF Champions League spot.


According to the Premier Soccer League (PSL), all 16 DStv Premiership teams will play today and all the eight matches will kick off at 15:00. This means that TV channels will be in demand. Orlando Pirates will be one of the teams to be televised.

The Sea Robbers will be hosted by the Rockets at the Mbombela Stadium at 15:00. According to the DStv TV Guide, the match will be on SuperSport’s channel 208.


“We lost one final against Richards Bay [on Saturday] and we have another final on Saturday in Mbombela against TS Galaxy and another one here at Orlando Stadium against SuperSport United,” Riveiro said via Times LIVE.

“We are playing for something really important for the club [the Champions League] and we have to give our all. There are a lot of things we need to improve from our match against Richards Bay but the attitude and the desire to get the three points was there and that’s the most important thing,” the Buccaneers caoch added.

“Now we are going to another final and we are going to do the same in desire and attitude, we know we are playing for something big. We want to be in the Champions League next season, but now Stellenbosch is in that place. 

“We want to get there and we know that to do it, all of us have to run the extra mile. This includes the technical team, players and everybody involved. That’s the only way to make it possible,” the Orlando Pirates mentor concluded.

Additionally, the Soweto giants have confirmed Thalente Mbatha will be back after missing the Richards Bay match.

“Thalente Mbatha returns to add to coach Jose Riveiro’s options in the midfield, following his absence from the team that faced Richards Bay. The 24-year-old is again eligible for selection having served his one-match suspension,” Orlando Pirates confirmed.

“The Buccaneers could soon be bolstered further by the return of Deon Hotto, who continues his recovery after picking up a knock in the Nedbank Cup semifinal triumph over Chippa United.

“For the Rockets, coach Sead Ramovic could shuffle his pack with the likes of Lindokuhle Mbatha and Orebotse Mongae expected back after missing the trip to Cape Town,” the club concluded.
