Orlando Pirates starting XI prediction: Dstv Premiership vs Chippa United

We predict the Orlando Pirates starting XI ahead of their DStv Premiership match against Chippa United on Saturday.

Orlando Pirates starting XI prediction

Richard Ofori is reportedly still in pain and unlikely to start in goal against Chippa United leaving Siyabonga Mpontshane as the obvious choice to take the gloves.

Orlando Pirates are likely to persist with the use of five defenders with a Centre Back trio at its heart. Abel Mabaso, Thulani Hlatshwayo and Happy Jele will take some breaking down.

Bandile Shandu will start at right back after an impressive start to his Sea Robbers career, while on the other flank Paseka Mako’s lively display against Swallows should secure him another outing.

In midfield, Ben Motshwari will likely return to the starting XI and look to strike up a partnership with new arrival Goodman Mosele.

Deon Hotto could find himself shifted out to the wing to accommodate Tshegofatso Mabasa as the central striker, while Vincent Pule will almost certainly start on the right wing.
