The Pirates have been solid but unspectacular so far this semester, and the hope is that Kermit Erasmus will give them some edge against his former team.
The MTN 8 semi-final will be the first meeting between these two sides in the competition in 11 years.
Sundowns have concerns about Peter Shalulile’s goal-scoring form, but they have been allayed so far by the impressive arrival of Marcelo Allende.
Sundowns have won their last five head-to-head matches against Orlando Pirates in all competitions.
This tie pits the last two MTN 8 champions against each other and will be a test of Pirates’ desire to challenge Sundowns for dominance.
