Orlando Pirates head into this afternoon’s fixture with a handsome three goal advantage thanks to last weekend’s 3 – 0 victory away from home.
Thulani Hlatshwayo, Linda Mntambo and Jean Marc Makusu Mundele were on target in an emphatic victory last weekend however Orlando Pirates can expect a stronger performance from Jwaneng Galaxy who now have nothing to lose in today’s away clash.

ZINNBAUER WARNS AGAINST COMPLACENCY
“I think we performed well in the first-leg which put us in a good position for the tie.” Orlando Pirates head coach Josef Zinnbauer said.
“We have to now have a good look at the squad and decide which players need a break, the current injury status of the squad and the fitness levels of the players. This weekend’s clash will be a tough game, yes we are three goals ahead but in football anything is possible and we need to be careful.
“It’s really not been that easy for Orlando Pirates. We don’t easily have access to TV footage or any video analysis so it hasn’t been easy to prepare at all. Our analysis team has done a great job with providing the analysis they’ve managed to get which is always vital to the management to prepare ahead of the games with information on our opponents.
“It’s still not easy, the clips that you get is maybe not of full games but short clips instead which makes things more challenging. With full games from friendlies, but we know that this is not the same as a competitive fixture.”
