Back To Africa! Chiefs Loss Is Pirates’ CAF Gain

Orlando Pirates Will Be Back In CAF Competition Next Year

By Soccer Laduma - Apr 25, 2018 05:30 PM
Orlando Pirates will definitely be playing in the CAF competition next season, regardless of what happens in their final three matches of the campaign.
Kaizer Chiefs’ defeat at the hands of Golden Arrows on Tuesday evening means that not only are the Buccaneers guaranteed to finish above their Soweto rivals but also they can finish no lower than third in the Absa Premiership. 
While it is yet to be decided whether it will be the Champions League or Confederation Cup that Pirates will be playing, a victory over Bidvest Wits this evening would mean that they’ll be back in the big leagues with Mamelodi Sundowns next year.
While Chiefs are out of contention for a CCL spot, they can still potentially leapfrog Maritzburg United for third place as they go in search of a strong league finish and a CCC spot. 
The Buccaneers, one of only two South African teams to have won the CCL, haven’t played in the tournament since reaching the final in 2013, and haven’t played in any CAF competition since finishing as CCC runners-up in 2015.
Milutin Sredojevic has previously stated that one of his main aims was to return Pirates to their rightful place in the continental competition, something that he has now achieved in his first season.

“If it happens against Maritzburg then we will be happy, then if it doesn’t then it will have to be Loftus on Saturday or Bloemfontein. We will still go on to celebrate [all] the same,” Tau says. “But we will try our best to give our all against Maritzburg and if it doesn’t go the way we want, we will look for another alternative which is against Ajax or Celtic.” Percy Tau c0ncluded
