CAF Confederation Cup

Erasmus Targets Early Goal In Egypt

Orlando Pirates take on Aly Ahly in Egypt in the second-leg of the CAF Confederation Cup semi-finals on Sunday, having won the first-leg 1-0 at Orlando Stadium last week Saturday.

The Bucs needs either a win or a draw to qualify for the final and striker Kermit Erasmus says that they are not going to Egypt to defend the one goal, but to win the game.

He told the Siya crew that as a team, they have what it takes to go to Egypt and come back with a victory and they have done it before.

"This is a semi-final second-leg and obviously it will be a tough game, but we have to go there and score. And it would be great if we could score early because that would unsettle them and put them under pressure,” he said.

“We won't be thinking of defending but rather attack through the game, so that we don't give then chances to attack us. But the most important thing is for us to score in the away game," Erasmus concluded.
