Orlando Pirates continue their CAF Confederations Cup campaign when they take on Tunisian outfit CS Sfaxien on Sunday night (21.15 SA time).
It will be Pirates third match in Group B, the Soweto club so far having three points after beating Leopards AFC in their first match before losing 2-1 to Egyptian side Zamalek in Mbombela two weeks ago.
CS Sfaxien are eight-time league champions in Tunisia, having last won the title in 2013, when they were coached by former Pirates tactician Ruud Krol.
The two clubs have met twice before, a 0-0 draw and a 1-0 win for the north Africans, those two results in 2006 enabling Sfaxien to reach the CAF Champions League final at Pirates’ expense.
According to media reports, the Buccaneers are likely to be without defenders Rooi Mahamutsa and Ayanda Gcaba as both players struggle with injury.
