Starting XI: Pirates v Ajax
Absa Premiership Starting XI: Orlando Pirates v Ajax Cape Town 12 September 2017
After a two-week break due to international break and local cup action this past weekend, both Pirates and Ajax will be raring to get their campaigns back on track.
Milutin Sredojevic’s troops come into the match having had a relatively good start to the campaign. The men from Orlando played yet another draw against their bogie team Baroka FC before claiming all three points against the Chilli Boys before the break.
Their visitors from Cape Town started the campaign on a more sluggish note and find themselves with just one point in the first two games.
Their trip to Orlando Stadium presents the Urban Warriors with an opportunity to get their campaign underway and earn their first three points of the season and will most likely come out to play to ensure they do not fall too far off the pacesetters in the early stages of the season.
The hosts will be giving nothing away as they too will be looking to get their title charge going with early positive momentum and three points in this match will be vital in their quest for ABSA Premiership glory.
