Orlando Pirates and Kaizer Chiefs are set to clash in a high-stakes Absa Premiership Soweto Derby next month and details surrounding match tickets have been announced.

Pirates and Chiefs are set to renew their rivalry on the pitch when they face one another for a third time this season, having earlier met in the league and Telkom Knockout quarterfinal in November last year.

This time, Pirates are on an eight-match unbeaten run as they sit just 12 points adrift of Chiefs, who are also looking to maintain their gap over second-placed Mamelodi Sundowns.

It will be the first meeting between Ernst Middendorp and Josef Zinnbauer, who took over the Bucs reins from Mokwena in December last year and has yet to taste defeat in his opening six games, making it an exciting battle between the German tacticians.
