Neeskens warning for Pirates
Johannesburg - Johan Neeskens has warned Orlando Pirates their tag as favourites for the MTN8 semi-final will count for little on match-day.
The Buccaneers continue their defence of the title against
Neeseken's Mamelodi Sundowns in the first leg of the last-four at the
Orlando Stadium on Sunday.
Both sides will head into the clash on a high after claiming
victories in their respective PSL encounters midweek, and the Brazilians
coach insists his side have what it takes to topple Julio Leal's men.
"We will be playing a good a team that proved their ability by winning a treble last season," Neeskens told Times Live.
"They also hold the advantage of resting an extra day more than the other teams in the semi-finals.
"So, of course, they should be the favourites to win it, but favourites can also lose."
