Cape Town - Orlando Pirates will chase their first domestic victory of the new season when they welcome Chippa United to the Orlando Stadium for an Absa Premiership match.

Pirates opened their 2015/16 league campaign with a 1-0 defeat away to SuperSport United on August 11/12.

The Buccaneers are placed 15th on the Absa Premiership log with zero points from one match.

Chippa opened their 2015/16 league campaign with a goalless draw at home to Kaizer Chiefs on August 9.

The Chilli Boys are placed sixth on the Absa Premiership log with one point from one match.

In head-to-head stats, Pirates and Chippa have met in four league matches since the 2012/13 season.

The Chilli Boys have claimed two victories from the sequence compared to just one for the Buccaneers.

Pirates have recorded one win and one loss from their two previous home matches against Chippa.

Last season the Chilli Boys won 1-0 in the Eastern Cape, but Bucs claimed revenge with a 2-0 victory in the return game in Soweto.

The teams’ four league matches have produced a total of just four goals.

Kick-off on 18 August 2015 will be at 19:30.
