JZ: We’re Looking Forward To The CAFCC Semi-Final

Orlando Pirates coach Josef Zinnbauer has made a bold statement ahead of the second leg at Raja Casablanca, saying his side are “looking forward to the semi-final”.

The German tactician addressed the media in Casablanca on Saturday, saying his side have found a good hotel and good training facilities in Morocco.

Zinnbauer also discussed his side’s approach to the game after the 1-1 draw in the first leg, saying they will sit back and hope to hurt the hosts on the counter.

“It’s a big game ahead of us,” he said.

“We know how important it is for our supporters, our club. But we have an away game.

“We have to wait now and see what happens in the game. We know we have the quality to score a goal. (We’ve shown it) in all games that we played.

“Then it’s not so easy for Casablanca if we score. Casablanca have a home game and they are under pressure. 

“We have to wait for one action and then we score, and then we have to see what happens in this game. 

“For us, it’s important, we are looking forward to the semi-final and that is the reason we are here.”

Pirates will take on Raja, who won all of their four home games in the competition this season without conceding a goal, on Sunday at 18:00, SA time.
