Soweto giants Orlando Pirates have booked their place in the second qualifying round of the CAF Champions League following an aggregate 4-0 defeat of Djabal in the first preliminary round.

The Buccaneers are aiming to bring themselves back to reckoning in Africa, having previously conquered the continent in 1995.

The long wait has been arduous to say the least; while the club has tasted lots of success in domestic football, it's been one disappointment to another since their last continental triumph.

And so, this campaign presents another chance for the team to reign supreme once more in the CAF Champions League, and set the pace for other teams in the Premier Soccer League to follow.

With an exciting coach and exceptional players within the club's ranks, the 2023/24 continental season might be the Buccaneers' chance to reign supreme in Africa.

But before the club can reclaim the title currently held by Al Ahly of Egypt, they will have to make it through the second round of the qualifying series.

By this, we will introduce the team's next opponents, the venue and TV guide of Orlando Pirates blockbuster second-round clash.
