Cape Town - Orlando Pirates are favourites to reach the CAF Confederation Cup group stages when they host AS Kaloum at the Bidvest Stadium on Saturday.

Pirates head into the clash with a 2-0 aggregate advantage, thanks to goals from Oupa Manyisa and Thamsanqa Gabuza in the first leg in Bamako, Mali in May.

That means Kaloum have to score three goals away from home to progress at Pirates' expense, but have only managed 11 in 13 league matches this season.

They also travel to South Africa on the back of a heavy 3-0 defeat to Fello Star that will have the Guinean side short on confidence.

Pirates will be without midfielder Mpho Makola and defender Siyabonga Sangweni through suspension, meaning that manager Eric Tinkler will have to make some changes to his team to make up for the missing pair.

Kick-off is at 15:00.
