Moses Mabhida Stadium will host the DStv Premiership match between AmaZulu vs Orlando Pirates on 24 October 2023 with kick-off time set at 18:30 BST.

AmaZulu FC at the FNB Stadium on 21 October, defeated Kaizer Chiefs 0-1 in the newly launched Carling Knockout Cup competition. They will now switch attention to league action where they'll look to put an end to back-to-back winless run in the PSL.

While Orlando Pirates picked up a 2-0 win over Cape Town Spurs at home in the Carling Knockout Cup in their last outing. They'll be on the road to face AmaZulu in the league on Tuesday. The Bucs recently won the MTN8, and should be in good spirits to turn their league season around.

AmaZulu vs Orlando Pirates predictions

AmaZulu have a good home record this season while Orlando Pirates are performing poorly away from home. Let's look at three predictions we have for this game.

Prediction 1: Orlando Pirates to win

Usuthu have been unbeaten at the Moses Mabhida Stadium so far in the league this season; with two wins and two draws, they've also picked up maximum points in back-to-back home games. Nevertheless, they've lost their last two matches against the Sea Robbers and have only managed a draw once in this fixture out of four meetings. We're backing the recent MTN8 winners to pick maximum points here.

Prediction 2: Both teams to score

Encounters between both teams have ended with goals on both sides on many occasions. This clash has happened 17 times since 2014 across all competitions. Interestingly, 11 of those meetings have given us goals from both teams while six failed to deliver on this market. The last time AmaZulu played at home in the league, it ended 3-2 and we strongly fancy this game to end with these teams scoring each other.

Prediction 3: Over 2.5 goals

Our last prediction for AmaZulu vs Orlando Pirates is on the over 2.5 goals market. The visitors scored four times against AmaZulu in their last outing; like we've pointed out before too, Usuthu played out a 3-2 win in their last home game. Despite the struggles of Jose Riveiro's side in front of goal in recent times, we're still unmoved in this match giving us at least three goals.
