The Soweto Derby always gets pulses racing. Here are the two next confirmed dates for meetings between great rivals Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates.
KAIZER CHIEFS VS. ORLANDO PIRATES: SOWETO DERBY DATES CONFIRMED
Chiefs and Pirates lock horns again in the DStv Premiership on Saturday, November 11th kicking off from FNB Stadium at 15:30. The return clash is on March 11th 2024. Could they still meet in this season’s MTN8 final though? It’s a possibility for sure.
WHEN ARE KAIZER CHIEFS NEXT PLAYING FOOTBALL?
Molefi Ntseki is hoping that Ranga Chivaviro and Keagan Dolly might return at the end of the latest international break. Chiefs face Royal AM on Saturday 16 September in the DStv Premiership. They’ve got a trip to SuperSport four days later on the 20th, and then a much-anticipated MTN8 semi-final second leg with Sundowns. That tie is delicately poised at 1-1 after the first leg.
DOVE BACK IN THE MIX
The versatile and experienced Mozambican defender is fit again after a groin injury in pre-season against Young Africans. He was on the bench for his nation’s dramatic 3-2 win over Benin in an AFCON qualifier at the weekend and inching closer to a return for his club. Nkosingiphile Ngcobo, Keagan Dolly and Ranga Chivaviro are also all back in contention.
