Pirates Name Starting XI For Raja Game

Josef Zinnbauer has named his Orlando Pirates starting line-up for today’s CAF Confederation Cup quarter-final leg against Raja Casablanca.

The two teams meet at 6pm (SAST) at the Stade Mohammed V in Morocco.

It is Raja who have the advantage after last week’s first leg, which ended 1-1. Vincent Pule had given Pirates the lead, but Ben Malango scored the all-important away goal to equalise.

If Pirates want to reach the last four, they will have to score in Casablanca, which will be a big feat considering Raja’s record this season.

In fact Pule’s goal at the Orlando Stadium was the first goal the Moroccan club had conceded in seven CAFCC games.

The starting line-ups:

Raja Casablanca XI: Zniti, Benhalib, Haddad, Arjoune, Ngoma, El Wardi, Jbira, Rahimi, Hadhoudi, Ngita, Madkour

Orlando Pirates XI: Sandilands, Hlatshwayo, Maela, Mako, Jooste, Monare, Mabaso, Ndlovu, Lorch, Pule, Hotto
