Johannesburg - Orlando Pirates captain, Oupa Manyisa, expects a tough match when his team take on AC Leopards in the CAF’s Confederations Cup match set for Orlando stadium this afternoon.

The Pirates skipper said he does not expect a different side to the one the beat in the first leg match, but is expecting Leopards to take the game to them as a win can give them a chance to be in the semi-finals.

“I expect them to be very offensive today unlike in the first leg match where they were a bit defensive and waiting for us to commit,” Manyisa told Sport24.

“I believe it will still be the same team that we beat in their backyard just that I suspect the game plan will be different today.

“But this is an important match because both teams need a win to qualify to the semi-finals.”
