Orlando Pirates’ CAF Champions League opponents from Zambia have been boosted ahead of their arrival in South Africa for their second leg match in the preliminary stages of the continental competition.
Having earned a hard-fought 1-0 win over the Buccaneers in their first leg match in Zambia over a week ago, Green Eagles will be looking to upset the Soweto giants this weekend for a chance to advance in the competition.
Eagles received a motivation last weekend after the team’s head coach Aggrey Chiyangi was awarded the Coach of the Year accolade in Zambia.
Chiyangi, who doubles up as a caretaker coach for Zambia’s senior national team, created history when he led Eagles to their first ever qualification in the continental competition.
Chiyangi has been at the helm as Eagles’ head coach since 2017.
Meanwhile, a winner from the Pirates and Eagles match will play against either Angolan champions Clube Desportivo 1º de Agosto or KMKM FC of Zanzibar next.
