CAF Confederation Cup

The South African Football Association (SAFA) has extended its well wishes to the Orlando Pirates team ahead of their crucial CAF Confederation Cup semi-final second-leg clash against Al Ahly.

The Buccaneers take a slender 1-0 lead into the game, that is scheduled to take place at the Suez Stadium on Sunday at 20h30.

The winner of the tie will take on either Etoile du Sahel or Zamalek, who will clash in the other semi-final on Saturday. Zamalek have a huge task ahead of them as they will have to overcome a 5-1 scoreline to make it to the final.

SAFA President Danny Jordaan extended his well wishes to the Bucs team that is already in Egypt preparing for their clash.

“You have so far not disappointed the nation as has been the norm on your continental campaigns. You are now just 90 minutes away from reaching the final and as an Association we are confident you have it in you to repeat the famous victory we saw at Orlando Stadium last weekend,” Jordaan said in a press release.

“Continue doing your best and hoisting the flag of the country higher. We wish you all of the best and may you return home safe and victorious.”
