BETTING PREVIEW: SIMBA vs ORLANDO PIRATES

Former Orlando Pirates forward Bernard Morrison will be keen to show the Bucs what they missed when Simba host Pirate in their CAF Confederation Cup quarter-final first leg.

The match at the Benjamin Mkapa National Stadium will take place on Sunday evening.

Pirates advanced to this stage after they finished as Group B winners with 13 points ahead of second-placed Libyan side Al Ittihad, thrid placed JS Saoura of Algeria and Royal Leopards of Eswatini, who finished bottom of the group.

Orlando Pirates managed to secure four wins from six games.

Orlando Pirates coach Mandla Ncikazi says: “The history of Pirates is that they have always done well in Caf competitions. When Roger De Sa was here, they played in the [2013 Champions League] final and Eric Tinkler also played in the [2015 Confederation Cup] final.

“They qualified [for the 2020-21 group stages] the last time under Josef Zinnbauer and they won the title in 1995. So there is no surprise.

“Pirates should be in the stages where they are in at the moment and we will try go further and possibly win it. Pirates have quality. You could see that we are a team that wants to dominate matches and use the ball well.”

Bernard Morrison has already scored three goals and claimed two assists in seven matches.

Kabelo Dlamini will be relishing the chance to continue his form in the competition after scoring three goals in his last four games during the group stages.
