Cape Town - Orlando Pirates assistant coach Tebogo Moloi admits the Buccaneers are up against a formidable opponent in CS Sfaxien, but insists a positive outcome is achievable.
Pirates will aim to bounce back after a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Zamalek in the CAF Confederations Cup earlier this month, a result which saw the Soweto giants drop off top spot in Group B to now sit three points adrift of the Egyptians.
Zamalek are on the summit with six points, Pirates have three while Sfaxien and AC Leopards have a point each, setting up a pulsating tie in Tunisia on Sunday.
"It is going to be a difficult game for us. They are tactically strong and just a good side all around," Moloi told the club's website.
"They qualify for CAF tournaments every year which indicates the calibre of team they are.
"Furthermore we know that the concentration levels of the sides from the north of the continent are quite high.
"They do have their weaknesses that we will definitely look to explore and try to take advantage of.
"Despite the loss in 2006 in Tunisia, we should have beaten them and I think our current squad is good enough to get the job done but there are certain aspects of our game that we need to improve upon."
