Pirates and Al Ahly still goalless
A win for the Bucaneers would put them one step closer to a spot in the semi-finals.
JOHANNESBURG - Orlando Pirates welcomes Al Ahly to the Orlando Stadium on Sunday afternoon in an African Champions League encounter.
A win for the Bucaneers would put them one step closer to a spot in the semi-finals of Africa's biggest football club competition.
Pirates coach Roger Da Sa has labelled his Egyptian opponents as "second to none", saying they're seven time champions for a reason.
A win will take Pirates joint top of the table on 10 points, but they will have to do so without Andile Jali who is still out injured.
The last time these two sides met, Pirates shocked the football fraternity, famously beat the Egyptian giants 3-0 away from home. A similar result would no doubt set South Africa off into absolute hysteria.
Tlou Segolela had a golden opportunity to give the Sea Robbers the lead in the 17th minute, but failed to find a clean connect the ball.
Just before the half hour mark, Sifiso Myeni found himself in space, but his shot could only find the side netting.
Neither side really tested the opposition keeper in the latter parts of the half, seeing the teams head into the change room locked at nil nil.
