Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane says he expects Orlando Pirates to give his side a challenging time in Saturday's league clash in Pretoria.

The Brazilians started 2017 on a positive note when they defeated Bloemfontein Celtic 1-0, while Bucs fired blanks in a 0-0 draw with Platinum Stars.

As such, Mosimane believes that the Sea Robbers will be highly motivated as they visit Loftus Versfeld Stadium in Tshwane.

"We got the result (against Celtic) and we know it's going to be difficult against Pirates. But we have the experience. If it's 1-0, then we will take the 1-0," he told the SowetanLIVE.

"You know when they play Sundowns at Loftus, they always give us a tough time. We will use these two games against Celtic and Pirates to prepare for the Super Cup against TP Mazembe."
