Pirates host Chippa United

The rivalry between Orlando Pirates and Chippa United has stretched close to a decade, and its 16th edition takes place at Orlando Stadium on Wednesday night.

The two sides have met a total of 14 times in the league, with one encounter in cup competition.

In preparation for the clash, Orlandopiratesfc.com has compiled some key stats and facts.

The match played at Orlando Stadium is the eighth at the venue between the two sides.

The first time the Buccaneers hosted the Chilli Boys was in April 2013, and it was the Eastern Cape-based outfit that walked off victorious on the day, with Brent Carelse’s late winner the only goal scored in the match.

That result remains Chippa’s only victory in Pirates’ backyard, with the six subsequent encounters all going the way of the Soweto Giants.

A total of 14 goals have been scored at Orlando Stadium, with the hosts accounting for eight.

The biggest winning margin in the fixture is three goals, which fell in favour of the Buccaneers when they ran off 4-1 victors in August 2015.
