Johannesburg - Orlando Pirates coach Roger de Sa is confident that his charges will put up a brave fight against AC Leopards on Saturday afternoon in Congo Brazzaville when the two teams meet in a crucial CAF Champions League Group A match in Dolisie.

According to Orlando Pirates' official website, De Sa had one final motivational session with the squad in their final training session before departing for the Republic of Congo.

"You have two teams desperately fighting for maximum points.

"I had a chat with the guys and we all know what is expected from us in this match," said De Sa.

"I am pretty sure that this match will be very tough, but if we approach it with the right attitude we stand a good chance of getting a win."

Meanwhile, midfielder Tlou Segolela said that the team wil have to play for their lives and take the game to the opposition.

"We have nothing to lose – we have to go all out and win the match.

"It is an away match and we can’t wait for them to come to us.

"We prepared well and let us hope God will be on our side on match day," said Segolela.

Kick-off is at 15.30.
