Johannesburg - Despite having to come from a goal down to salvage a 1-1 draw against Al-Ahly in the first leg of the Caf Champions League final on Saturday night, Orlando Pirates coach Roger De Sa believes his team has what it takes to claim the title.

"It’s going to be very difficult there’s no doubt about it, but we’ll go there to win and we have the character to turn it around."

The Soweto giants had already played Ahly twice in this year’s tournament prior to Saturday’s tie, having claimed a 3-0 victory in Egypt and a goalless draw in Soweto.
