Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane believes that Orlando Pirates is a local juggernaut that can never be underestimated.

The league leading Brazilians travel to the Orlando Stadium on Wednesday evening to face the stuttering Buccaneers in the Premiership. 

Both teams have had contrasting fortunes this season with the on-form Sundowns collecting 42 points from 18 games while Pirates have 23 points from 17 games.

"Looking at the results recently, they are winning, they are coming up and their confidence is up," Mosimane told KickOff

"They are taking the points slowly game by game, they are a good team. It is just that they don't find their rhythm properly.

"They change a lot their team. You will never know who is playing. I mean you can come on Wednesday, you will find another team, that's my opinion. Unlike us, Kaizer Chiefs, we've been stable and Bidvest Wits too.

"But there is a reason why they do that. When I assess and analyse, I don't even know who is coming.

"But they are a big team, we respect them. In the last two years when we go to Orlando we don't come back with nothing."
