“Pirates are representing the whole of South Africa, so we could do with the support from the fans of the other PSL teams,” Modisane told the Siya crew.
“This is probably one of our most important games in this season’s Champions League because we need to win it in order to qualify for the semi-finals, so as Pirates, we would appreciate all the support we could get from the SA football fraternity,” added Modisane.

Pirates, who are lying second in Group A on seven points, are current trailing Ahly by three points and a win against the Egyptian giants will all but guarantee their passage to the semi-finals.
Pirates’ match against Ahly will be televised live on SABC and SuperSport.
