Omog Optimistic For Bucs Clash

AC Leopards coach Joseph Omog believes that his side has what it takes to beat Orlando Pirates on Saturday and increase their chances of securing a semi-final spot in the 2013 edition of the CAF Champions League.

Leopards, who held Bucs to a 0-0 draw in Orlando in July, will host Pirates at the Stade Denis Sissou Nguesso in Dolisie on Saturday afternoon.

"We did okay in South Africa to force a draw, but my side is capable of much better," Omog told CAF Online.

Leopards are competing in Africa’s most prestigious club competition for the first time this year, and ousted some big names en route to the last eight.

The Dolisie-based side edged Nigeria’s Kano Pillars of Nigeria, despite a 4-1 away loss. They then defeated former champions, Entente Setif of Algeria, on penalties after another 4-4 aggregate deadlock.

Pirates on the other hand, defied all odds be claiming victory over defending champions TP Mazembe, to reach the last eight.

Not even dubious penalties awarded to Mazembe could stop the Buccaneers from progressing through to the group stages of this lucrative competition.
