CAF Confederation Cup

De Sa: If Al Ahly Open Up, Bucs Will Win

Former Orlando Pirates and current Ajax Cape Town head coach, Roger De Sa, thinks that a lot depends on the result of the first leg of Bucs' CAF Confederation Cup semi-final.

De Sa guided Pirates to the final of the CAF Champions League in 2013, but could not overcome the final hurdle as Al Ahly stood in their way.

The Buccaneers will be looking for revenge when they welcome the Egyptian giants to the Orlando Stadium for the first leg of their semi-final clash and De Sa has indicated that a lot hinges on whether or not Pirates can get a result in the encounter on Saturday.

“Obviously a lot is going to depend on what happens here in the first leg. Even 0-0 wouldn’t be a bad result for Pirates to take to Egypt.”

“If you take that to Cairo, I think you have a good chance because they will open up a lot more up there. If Al Ahly open up, Orlando Pirates will defeat them.”

“Orlando Pirates’ qualification through to the semi-finals of the Confederation Cup is a fantastic achievement. No other team in South Africa has ever done it.”

“That in itself is a top achievement. Having to qualify from the group stages to the semi-final is incredibly good,” De Sa told Soccer Laduma.
