Bucs break the Chiefs bus…

Soccer Laduma - - Make Your Point -

Asec­ond Soweto Derby in four weeks gave Kaizer Chiefs and Or­lando Pi­rates a chance to reach a cup fi­nal and move one step closer to end­ing their re­spec­tive tro­phy droughts. Amakhosi have not won sil­ver­ware since 2015, whilst Or­lando Pi­rates are on an even longer drought, hav­ing not lifted a tro­phy since the 2014 Ned­bank Cup win. The two gi­ants of South African foot­ball had an op­por­tu­nity to make it to the show­piece on De­cem­ber 8 le­gend Baroka FC, but Chiefs would need to over­come a ter­ri­ble re­cent record against the Buc­ca­neers. The Glam­our Boys have only man­aged a penalty shootout win against their archri­vals in the last ten meet­ings be­tween the clubs. With Rhu­lani Mok­wena’s com­ments about Gio­vanni Soli­nas be­ing a lower cal­i­bre coach than his pre­de­ces­sor Steve Kom­phela still lin­ger­ing in the air, there was some real nee­dle head­ing into the game. Soc­cer Lad­uma looks at the dif­fer­ing ap­proaches of the two sides and how the match was won from a tac­ti­cal per­spec­tive.
