Orlando Pirates will hopefully get lucky for the third time when they set out in search of continental glory. On Friday night in the final of the Confederations Cup CAF in the Nigerian Uyo “Bucanoirs” will face the Moroccan team RS Berkan.

This will be the third time since 2013 that the Sauet giants will perform in the CAF finals. In the previous two cases, they took second place.

In 2013, in the Champions League final, the Pirates lost to the Egyptian giants Al-Ahly. Two years later they missed out on winning the Confederations Cup after losing to Etoile du Sahel of Tunisia.

On Friday in search of silver silver “Buchanyrs” will play with another opponent from North Africa. And this is another opportunity to make history.

The Pirates spent not the best season on the domestic front. However, they could not be blamed for their continental search. They will want to continue the momentum, but also have a polished game management plan.

“We focus on our attacking moves, our fluidity, how we can use their weaknesses in their team,” said Orlando Pirates co-coach Fadlu Davids.

The Pirates face the side that won the competition two seasons ago. Although Sea Robbers have outsider status, they are determined to impose their style of play.

“It’s about the fact that we play our football and we trust how we approached this CAF competition, we trust our style and we trust our players who will be able to realize the day, managing emotions is one part, but adhering to tactical plan and control those moments when we’re on top and if not on top, and trust our game strategy to our plan to score goals, ”adds Davids.

The match will take place on a neutral ground. The Pirate Camp is hoping for the support they are likely to receive. They will be counting on the presence of defender Olissa Nda, who will return to the stadium where he won the league title with his former club before joining them.

“We hope that the Nigerians will move away from us and have an extra 12th person in the stadium so that a neutral venue can become our home ground,” Davids explains.

The team has already arrived in Nigeria to finish training.
