Cape Town - Former Orlando Pirates coach Roger de Sa believes the club can come out on top of Saturday's CAF Confederations Cup semi-final against Al Ahly, despite their various injury setbacks.
The Buccaneers welcome the Egyptian giants to the Orlando Stadium this weekend for the first-leg of their last-four clash, but do so without captain Oupa Manyisa, as well as first-choice defenders Happy Jele and Siyabonga Sangweni.
The Soweto giants also head into the clash on the back of successive Premiership draws, but Ajax Cape Town coach De Sa is confident counterpart Eric Tinkler has the necessary quality at his disposal to secure a positive result at home.
"It's not a tough game at all but the injury to Oupa Manyisa and other players is a blow to Eric. I think that's what will disturb his plans but still they can beat Al Ahly here at home," the coach told Soccer Laduma.
"They are beatable and Pirates has a team that can do that bar the injuries. They just have to work hard and they can do it."
