Soweto derby is a derby game between Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates. This game is considered one of the most fierce games in the Premier Soccer League. Game full of passion. For comparison, we can take Spanish El Clasico.
Those games attract a large number of fans. First Soweto derby we can see in 1970. The base of these rivals is in Soweto in Johannesburg, from that place we got a name Soweto derby.
But why do we have this derby in the first place? All this came from the fact that Kaizer Chiefs is formed by former Orlando Pirates star Kazer Motaung. He left the Orlando Pirates because he wants to play professional Soccer10 in the new league, North American Soccer League. A team where he went to play was called the Atlanta Chiefs.
After he came back to South Africa, he found out a lot of infighting among the hierarchy at Pirates. Because of this situation, he decided to form Kaizer XI. In the beginning, they were playing friendly matches between different clubs in South Africa. How time passes this club evolved to the Kaizer Chiefs. Since that time fans can enjoy in this derby.
Who will win in Soweto derby?
Finally, this weekend everyone can enjoy in this derby. A derby is full of passion. The ideal time to put some bet on your favorite club. Betway South Africa is an ideal place for that. But who will win in this derby? That is the main question for many fans.
There are some expectations that Orlando Pirates will make some changes to the team. Also, they will need to make some changes in the way of playing.
Specifically, there will for sure some change because Happy Jele was suspended in the last game. He can’t play this game. Rulani will be looking for three points in the game.
The last game between these two clubs ends up with a win of Kaizer Chiefs. But that win came on penalties. But it’s been five years since they beat them in the Absa Premiership. This will be a great motivation for Orlando Pirates in this game.
