CAF Confederation Cup

Teams: Al Ahly v Orlando Pirates

Date: 04 October 2015

Venue: Suez Army Stadium

Orlando Pirates will be looking to secure a spot in the CAF Confederation Cup final when they face Al Ahly in their second leg semi-final tie.

The match is scheduled to get underway at 20h30.

Thamsanqa Gabuza scored the only goal in the first leg, as the Buccaneers secured a 1-0 win at the Orlando Stadium.

Happy Jele is likely to return to side for tonight's clash, as he missed the first leg through suspension, although Siyabonga Sangweni is serving the second game of his two-match suspension. 

The last time the Buccaneers faced Al Ahly in Egypt, the home side secured a 2-0 that saw them clinch the 2013 CAF Champions League title.

Al Ahly have appealed to CAF to have the ban on their supporters lifted for tonight’s clash at the Suez Army Stadium.

Here's how they line-up:

Al Ahly: Ekrami, Ali, Samir, Naguib, Rahil, Ashour, Fathi, Zakareya, El-Said, Antwi, Evouna

Orlando Pirates: Ovono, Matlaba, Jele, Mahamutsa, Gcaba, Masalesa, Ntshumayelo, Makola, Myeni, Majoro, Gabuza
