Starting XI: Pirates v Horoya

CAF Champions League
 
Teams: Orlando Pirates and Horoya
 
Date: 18 January 2019
 
Venue: Orlando Stadium 
 
Orlando Pirates will be eyeing their first victory in Group B when they host Guinean outfit Horoya in the second CAF Champions League on Friday evening at Orlando Stadium.
 
The match will get underway at 18h30.
 
Bucs had a much needed rest after not being in action in the league in midweek and will be looking to gather momentum in their CAF Champions League group stage campaign.
 
Milutin Sredojevic’s charges earned a goalless draw against FC Platinum of Zimbabwe last weekend in Bulawayo in their Group B opener.
 
Meanwhile, Horoya also began their campaign with a point following a 1-1 draw with Tunis in Conakry last Friday.
 
Horoya made their first visit  to South Africa last year where they held Mamelodi Sundowns to a goalless draw in Tshwane in their Group C clash. They went on to finish second, three points ahead of the Brazilians and qualified for the quarter-finals of the tournament last term.
 
However, they were knocked out in the last eight by eventual finalists, Egyptians giants Al Ahly.
 
Here's how they line up:
 
Pirates: Mabokgwane, Jele, Ndengane, Mbekile, Maela, Mulenga, Nyatama, Mlambo, Lorch, Mahachi, Shonga.
 
Subs: Mpontshane, Mntambo, Makola, Mako, Pule, Munetsi.
