The next 72 hours will bring some football Pretoria, Polokwane, Thohoyandou, Durban and Cape Town.
Friday 6 December

Saturday 7 December
- Baroka FC vs Orlando Pirates: 15:30
Wedson Nyirenda’s side are looking for their first win in three outings. Pirates are in the way and travel to Limpopo in the spirit of “operation festive season.” According to Rhulani Mokwena the expression is a determination to win all Bucs’ December games as a Christmas present to the fans.
- Black Leopards vs AmaZulu: 15:30
Luc Eymael’s Leopards have desperate and dangerous visitors in town. AmaZulu are in an early fight to steer far off the relegation zone.

Everyone knows Chiefs are the best team in Mzansi soil right now. However, Celtic will want to say “yes, best team in SA but not in Bloemfontein.”

There’s a new man in charge at City. His very familiar name is Clinton Larsen and we all know what to expect from a footballers when a new coach is inside the dressing room.
