Cape Town - SuperSport United goalkeeper Reyaad Pieterse says the Pretoria side are happy to be underdogs for the CAF Confederation Cup final against TP Mazembe.

The Tshwane side are chasing their first ever continental silverware and are set to face the DR Congo giants in the two legged final, set for 19 (away) and 25 November (home).

Mazembe are the defending Confederation Cup champions and have also won the CAF Champions League five times in the club's illustrious history, most recently in 2015.

But Pieterse says Matsatsantsa are up for the challenge.

"TP Mazembe are experienced in this competition, so we have to be play smart and be clever and obviously we are the underdogs in the game," he told the Citizen.

"But that is what we like because at the end of the day we have come out strong on many occasions when we were underdogs.

"We know what we are up against and we will prepare for them. I believe that we have the team to get make sure that we win that trophy."

Kick off is at 14:30.
