A titanic clash between Orlando Pirates and Mamelodi Sundowns will headline this weekend's DStv Premiership action.
The two Gauteng giants are set to collide at the 2010 FIFA World Cup training ground, Orlando Stadium on September 25. 
The Buccaneers extended their unbeaten run to six matches in the league when they defeated Chippa United 3-1 at home in their last game on September 18.

Meanwhile, Sundowns stretched their unbeaten run to 12 matches in this competition when they thrashed TS Galaxy 3-0 away in their previous match on September 19.
The Tshwane giants are also undefeated in their last 19 away matches in the league having registered seven draws and 12 victories. 
"We know Pirates on transition has always been one of the strongest teams in the country," Mamelodi Sundowns co-head coach Manqoba Mngqithi has identified a key Pirates weakness.
"Be that as it may, it also becomes a very big weakness on their side, they're not very good when you press [their defence]. "They are open sometimes when they lose possession of the ball. 
"It's important to have the proper balance of dealing with their transitions with good counter-pressing. We might get something in that space."
