Moreover, the hosts bagged four clean sheets during that run. On the flip-side, Maritzburg scored four goals in their last five games and had three clean sheets within that duration. These impressive defensive records and poor scoring run are clear signs that this could be another low scoring game. Notably, 8 of the last 10 meetings had fewer than three goals.

Orland Pirates vs Maritzburg Game Preview and Betting Analysis

Before placing your bet on this DStv Premiership game, read the team previews below.

Orlando Pirates

Orlando Pirates are seventh on the DStv Premiership table. They are six points shy of the fifth spot, a position that should qualify the hosts for CAF Confederations Cup next season. Moreover, Orlando has three games in hand given that fourth-placed Kaizer Chiefs are played 20 games. While that should mean more chances for the hosts, every point counts with just a few games left before the season closes.

Maritzburg United

Maritzburg has played 29 games, two more than Orlando Pirates. And with just five points above the relegation playoff spot and only a game left to play, the visitors have no little ambition in this trip. A win or loss will be inconsequential and defeating Orlando after failing to do so in the last 11 games will not be easy.
