JOHANNESBURG - Former Bafana Bafana defender Edward Motale believes Orlando Pirates will win the CAF final against Al Ahly.

The Buccaneers take on defending champions Al Ahly in Cairo in the second leg of the competition on Sunday.

The two-legged final is currently tied at 1-1 following the game at Orlando Stadium this past Saturday.

Having won the competition himself, Motale believes the game in Cairo is just about collecting the trophy.

"The boys mustn't panic. They ball is in their court so Sunday is a matter of just lifting the trophy and good luck."

The game kicks off at 6pm.

Meanwhile, South African footballs fans including Sports Minister Fikile Mbalula have wished the Bucs well.

They have vowed to support them as they will be flying the country's flag in front of a hostile crowd.
