CAF Confederation Cup

Teams: Orlando Pirates v Enyimba

Date: 17 March 2021

Venue: Orlando Stadium

Orlando Pirates will be gunning for their first victory in the CAF Confederation Cup group stages when they host Enyimba on Wednesday evening.

The Nigerian giants enjoyed a positive start in the group after beating Al Ahli Bengahazi 2-1 last Wednesday and are top of the section with three points.

Pirates XI: Mpontshane, Hlatshwayo, Maela, Nyauza, Mako, Monare, Motshwari, Makaringe, Pule, Hotto, Mntambo
