A big clash awaits as Orlando Pirates vs Jwaneng Galaxy will take centre stage in the second leg of their CAF Champions League qualifying clash on Friday.
Soweto giants, Orlando Pirates, will host Jwaneng Galaxy in the second leg of their CAF Champions League clash on Friday.
The first leg between these two teams finished 1-0 in favour of Galaxy and Pirates have work to do to book their place in the group stage of the competition.
Despite a run of four consecutive wins before the first leg, the Buccaneers go into this clash on the back of three consecutive defeats across all competitions, and without scoring a goal as well.
Despite the first leg deficit, Jose Riveiro's side will come up against Jwaneng Galaxy in Sunday’s CAF Champions League play-off second leg match at Orlando Stadium as hot favourites.
For Jwaneng Galaxy, they'll be looking to make history by qualifying for the group stage of the CAF Champions League for the first time ever, while the Buccaneers will have to step things up if they want to go through to the group stage of the competition.
Orlando Pirates have not enjoyed any success on the continent since they won the CAF Champions League in 1995.
The Soweto giants finished as runners-up in the 2013 edition of this competition, and another second-place finish in the Confederation Cup in both 2015 and 2022.
Orlando Pirates vs Jwaneng Galaxy: How both teams got to this stage
Orlando Pirates faced off with Djabal in the first preliminary round. The Bucs won 0-1 away in Comoros and later confidently dispatched the lowly-rated opponents 3-0 in the return leg with Zakhele Lepasa heavily involved.
On the flip side, Jwaneng Galaxy met Vipers SC in the first preliminary round. In the first leg of the tie, Jwaneng defeated Vipers SC 2-0 but lost 2-1 away in their trip to Uganda, and qualified 3-2 on aggregate to face Orlando Pirates.
Galaxy shocked Pirates in the first leg and played well in front of their home fans to hand a slender lead coming into this game.
