The Guinean outfit was beaten 3-0 by the Soweto giants in Johannesburg in January. As things stand, Horoya are in second place on Group B standings with seven points, and Bucs in third place with six points. 

Horoya goalkeeper, Khadim Ndiaye, has described the upcoming clash against Pirates as one of the most important matches for the team.

“For me, we are playing the final of competition this Saturday. Nothing is more beautiful than to be qualified at the end of the 90 minutes of a match and especially admitted to the quarter-finals of the Champions League. So, I do not even want to talk about a draw and say that this result will qualify us,” Ndiaye told Horoya’s official website.

“I want to talk about a win, because we play in Conakry, at home, so we have to win the game to enjoy the qualification with the public. With this opponent, we must expect everything, a pleasant match during which it is important to show a lot of determination against a tough opponent. All they will try, we will answer but to us to bring a superior determination,” added the shot-stopper.

Meanwhile, the club has confirmed that they will be without defender Abu Mangue Camara, due to suspension for the accumulation of yellow cards.
