Cape Town - Orlando Pirates skipper Oupa Manyisa is eager to avenge their CAF Champions League final loss against Al-Ahly in 2013.

The Buccaneers are on the verge of qualifying for the CAF Confederations Cup semi-final, and Manyisa hopes to face their Egyptian foes.

With nine points in four group games, Pirates are in pole-position for the last four following their most recent 2-0 win over CS Sfaxien at the Orlando Stadium on Saturday.

"As players we told ourselves that we want to go as far as possible, so reaching the semi-final is something great for us," Manyisa told KickOff.

"But we will take it one game at a time. We are hoping to play against Al-Ahly again."
