Green Eagles will be aiming to progress to the next round when they face off with Orlando Pirates this evenning at Orlando Stadium in the second leg of their CAF Champions League preliminary round tie.
The Kawale Boys stunned everyone when they recorded a shock one nil win in the first leg thanks to a Spencer Sautu second half strike and they will be hoping to do more of the same and qualify to the next round.
Pirates on the other hand need a win to progress to the next round. The Soweto Giants have endured a miserable August with a poor run of four games where the Sea Robbers have failed to register even a single goal, recording three losses and a draw in all competitions.
The Buccaneers being at home are expected to be take the it home but the Aggrey Chiyangi tutored will not be a push over as they are determined to progress to the next round.
Justin Shonga, Augustine Mulenga and Thembikosi Lorch will have to be kept quiet for Eagles to carry the day because given a chance the trio van hurt the Choma based side. Tapson Kaseba is expected to lead the attack alongside Kennedy Musonda with Amity Shamende and Spencer Sautu playing on the wings.
