The Buccaneers will take on the Tunisian giants, Esperance, at Orlando Stadium on Saturday at 18h00.

“Esperance are a good team. I have been watching most of their matches. They are a well balanced and structured team, plus they have been doing well in Africa over the years, “De Sa told the Siya crew.

“I’m expecting a very tough match against them. It’s going to be our toughest ever match in the Champions League. But we’re playing at home, so it’s very important for us to come away with something in this game against them,” added De Sa.

Meanwhile, midfielder Sifiso Myeni will be available for selection for Saturday’s game against Esperance.

Myeni resumed training with the team yesterday after recovering from his groin injury and word is that he is looking sharp at training.

The game will be televised live on SS9 and SABC3.
