Pirates reached their second CAF Confederation Cup final after a 2-1 aggregate victory over Libyan giants Al Ahli Tripoli in the semi-finals.

The Soweto giants will be seeking their second coronation on the continent after winning the CAF Champions League in 1995.

Berkane, meanwhile, booked their spot in the final after defeating TP Mazembe 4-2 on aggregate, after they overturned a 1-0 deficit in the first-leg with a 4-1 thumping last weekend.

The Moroccan side will be looking to lift the trophy for the second time in two years after they were crowned champions for the first time in the 2019/20 season following their narrow 1-0 win over Egyptian outfit Pyramids in the final.

The Orange Boys were second time lucky after they lost the 2018/19 final to Egyptian giants Zamalek on penalties after a 1-1 draw on aggregate.

Here's how they line up:

Pirates: Ofori, Jele, Maela, Ndah, Shandu, Dlamini, Motshwari, Mosele, Lorch, Peprah, Hotto

Subs: Mpontshane, Hlatshwayo, Ndlovu, Monare, Makaringe, Nyauza, Mabasa, Mntambo, Dzvukamanja.
