Cape Town - Orlando Pirates coach Roger de Sa believes that his team still has a chance of qualifying for the CAF Champions League semi-finals, according to the Soccer-Laduma website.

After going down to AC Leopards in Congo on Saturday, Pirates will now have it all to do in their home match against Al Ahly in the last match of group A.

The Mighty Buccaneers were humbled (0-1) by Leopards at Denis Sassou Nguesso stadium in Dolisie Province, and have delayed their passage to the semi-finals of the African Champions League.

The Sea Robbers will need to bag maximum points against the Egyptians whom they welcome at Orlando Stadium on Saturday, 22 September and get 10 points which will guarantee the teams' passage to the semi-final of the prestigious ACL tournament.

De Sa will for this match count on the return to the side of midfielder Andile Jali and full backs Thabo Matlaba and Happy Jele who were serving suspensions.
