Starting XI: Pirates v Al Ahly

CAF Confederation Cup

Teams: Al Ahly v Orlando Pirates

Date: 26 September 2015

Venue: Orlando Stadium

Orlando Pirates will Egyptian giants, Al Ahly, in the first leg of their CAF Confederation Cup semi-final at the Orlando Stadium.

The match is scheduled to get underway at 18h00.

The Buccaneers come into this tie in some worrying form, having lost three successive matches in all competitions, two losses in the league, while they were thumped 4-1 by Zamalek in their last group encounter.

There are a few notable suspensions and injuries for Eric Tinkler's men, with Oupa Manyisa ruled out through injury, while Happy Jele and Siyabonga Sangweni are suspended.

There is good news though, as Soccer Laduma revealed earlier that Issa Sarr is available for selection once again.

Al Ahly, meanwhile, come into this tie on the back of a 2-0 loss to Zamalek in a Cup fixture during the week.

These two sides last met in 2013 in the CAF Champions League final, with Al Ahly claiming the trophy, while Pirates secured a 1-1 draw in the first leg at home. 

Here's how they line-up:

Orlando Pirates: Ovono, Mahamutsa, Gcaba, Nyauza, Matlaba, Masalesa, Ntshumayelo, Makola, Myeni, Gabuza, Erasmus

Al Ahly: Ekrami, Hani, Samir, Naguib, Rahil, Fathi, Ashour, El-Said, Zakareya, Sobhi, Antwi
