Kaizer Chiefs coach Steve Komphela has taken charge of the AmaKhosi in six Soweto Derby matches, but has yet to taste out-right victory.
His side did beat Pirates in a penalty shoot-out in the semifinals of the League Cup in November 2015, but that match finished 0-0 and the official result recorded as a draw.
In all, Chiefs have played to four draws and two losses in the six games.
If you include the match before Komphela’s arrival, Chiefs have gone seven games without an out-right victory, the longest stretch for them in the history of the Soweto Derby.
This will be the first Soweto Derby for Pirates coach Micho Sredojevic in his second spell with the club.
In his first, between June 2006 and January 2007, he met Chiefs just once, with that game ending in a 1-1 draw. It means the Serb is also waiting for his first Soweto Derby victory.
Kaizer Chiefs will host Orlando Pirates in the first round Premier Soccer League (PSL) match of the 2017/18 season at the FNB Stadium on Saturday. The game will kick off at 15:30.
