Soweto giants, Orlando Pirates, will be meeting Jwaneng Galaxy for the first time in the CAF Champions League. These two teams have previously met in the CAF Confederation Cup in 2021.

The Buccaneers go into this clash on the back of four consecutive wins across all competitions, and six wins in an unbeaten run of seven games.

Pirates are eager to reassert their name in this competition which they once conquered in 1995 as one of the heavyweight teams in Africa.

Jose Riveiro's side will come up against Jwaneng Galaxy in Sunday’s CAF Champions League play-off first leg match at Gaborone National 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 are looking to reach the final of this competition again.

It's worthy of note that since hoisting the CAF Champions League in 1995, Pirates have struggled to win any trophy on the continent; coming off short as runners-up in the 2013 edition of this competition, and another second-place finish in the Confederation Cup in both 2015 and 2022.

How both teams got to this stage

Jwaneng Galaxy met Vipers SC in the first preliminary round. In the first leg of the tie, Jwaneng defeated Vipers SC 2-0 and thereafter lost 2-1 away in their visit to Uganda, to qualify 3-2 on aggregate.

On the other hand, Orlando Pirates squared off with Djabal in the first preliminary round. The Bucs won 0-1 away in Comoros and later thrashed Djabal 3-0 in the return leg with Zakhele Lepasa heavily involved.

As fans gear towards enjoying another good showing from their team which dispatched Djabal in the first round in convincing fashion, they'll be all set to witness their team put up another thrilling show in the CAF Champions League.

In light of this, we've decided to bring fans information on how they can watch this clash live on TV and other platforms.
