Saturday 15 February
Baroka vs Bidvest Wits (15:30)
- Another survival fight against visitors dreaming of league glory.
Highlands vs Bloem Celtic (15:30)
- This is a full-on midtable battle between two sides with neither title ambitions nor relegation worries.
Mamelodi Sundowns vs Chippa (15:30)

Kaizer Chiefs vs Maritzburg (18:00)

Sunday 16 February
Black Leopards vs Orlando Pirates (15:30)
- It is simply Pirates’ turn to visit the always bouyant and hot Thohoyandou. Worse still, Leopards are fighting relegation. It’s pretty much attacking a big trapped Leopard.
