Expected Bucs XI Against Esperance

Orlando Pirates coach Roger de Sa has revealed his expected line up ahead of their CAF Champions League semi-final second leg clash against Esperance on Saturday night.

The Sea Robbers travel to Tunisia after a goalless draw in the first-leg at the Orlando Stadium - meaning a score draw will be enough for them to book their place in the final.

Discussing his selection on Robert Marawa's radio show, De Sa has opted to have Ayanda Gcaba partner Rooi Mahamutsa in the centre of defence for the crucial encounter.

Oupa Manyisa and Andile Jali will be looking to control the middle of the park while Tlou Segolela, Daine Klate and Sifiso Myeni will pour forward trying to score or set up striker Lennox Bacela.

The winner will go on to face either Egyptian giants Al Ahly or Cameroonian side Coton Sport in the final of the continental competition.

This is the expected line up:

Pirates: Senzo Meyiwa, Happy Jele, Rooi Mahamutsa, Ayanda Gcaba, Thabo Matlaba, Andile Jali, Oupa Manyisa, Tlou Segolela, Daine Klate, Sifiso Myeni, Lennox Bacela.
