Baroka are sitting fourth on the DStv Premiership table, one point behind Orlando Pirates heading into this afternoon’s encounter at Orlando Stadium (15h30).
The Limpopo-based side is aiming to cause a major upset but will need several of their stars to shine and rise to the occasion.
Bakgaga have claimed three points from two away matches, having also beaten Black Leopards 3-1 on their travels this season.
The players to watch…
The young Baroka midfielder recently bagged the 2019/20 Absa Premiership Young Player of the Season award after he managed an impressive 26 appearances across all competitions.
He is one of those who have impressed and at only 21 years of age, the box-to-box workhorse will sure play an important role this afternoon.
The 20-year-old striker is emerging as one of the most promising talents in South African football.
Makgopa was on the money when Baroka held Pirates to a 1-1 draw in last season’s PSL bubble, and has already netted twice in four matches this campaign.
Bakgaga seem to have found defensive stability this season and that will be key to their attempts of avoiding another relegation scrap.
Sibiya has partnered Mfanafuthi Shozi in every game this season and they will have the tough task of keeping the Pirates’ attackers at arm’s length.
