DStv Premiership: Lepasa continues his goal raids for Pirates, Golden Arrows pile on wasteful SuperSport

Ever since a defeat in the opening round of the 2023-24 DStv Premiership, Orlando Pirates have been in good form and the Bucs continued to surge towards second place in South Africa’s top division with a victory on Tuesday. Pirates defeated Cape Town City by a 2-0 score and it was on fire striker Zakhele Lepasa who displayed his high level of confidence at the moment. The 26-year-old delivered a stellar penalty box finish for his ninth goal in the last six matches to put Pirates up inside ten minutes before Patrick Maswanganyi put the Happy People beyond reach later on.

A surprise result preceded Pirates’ victory on Tuesday as SuperSport United failed to be efficient at home in a 3-0 defeat to Golden Arrows. Lungelo Nguse opened the scoring for Arrows in the first half with finishes from Angelo van Rooi and Ryan Moon completing the job for the club from Durban. Arrows equal SuperSport on ten points in second position and are eager to prove they are capable of pushing for a top-5 finish this season.
