Stellenbosch go into this match after a 0-0 Premier Division tied result versus Orlando Pirates.
An interesting feature of more recent Stellenbosch games is the number of results with a nil in them.
Taking their previous 6 matches before this one, in 5 of them a wager on BTTS would've been a loser. Such a trend won’t necessarily be carried forward here, of course.
Throughout their 6 most recent matches, Rhulani Mokwena's Orlando Pirates have slotted home 6 times therefore yielding them the goals per game average of 1.
Head to head

Team News: Stellenbosch
Almost everyone can be considered, as there’s just one fitness concern for the Stellenbosch gaffer Steve Barker to be concerned with thanks to an otherwise robust set of players. Juan Carlos Ortíz (Knee Injury) is sidelined.
Team News: Orlando Pirates
With a fully injury-free group ready to go, the Orlando Pirates boss Rhulani Mokwena doesn’t have any fitness concerns to report ahead of this match.
We’re inclined to think that Stellenbosch may find it difficult to score against this Orlando Pirates outfit who we reckon will score at least once to gain the upper hand.
We’re therefore seeing a hard-fought 0-1 victory for Orlando Pirates at the end of the 90.
A close call.
