Buccaneers ready to face Esperance

Orlando Pirates are expected to make a quick dash immediately after the Soweto Derby against Kaizer Chiefs on Saturday as they prepare for yet another important fixtures in a matter of days.The Buccaneers mostly likely route to Tunis, where they will play Esperance in a CAF Champions League Group B clash behind closed doors next Tuesday is via France to have time for regeneration.

Following their controversy-filled goalless draw against the Tunisia outfit at Orlando Stadium at the weekend, Pirates must then travel to north Africa for the return leg in search of all three points to keep their hopes of making it past the group stages alive.

And to do that they have to juggle their Soweto Derby preparations along with that of their itinerary to Tunisia, which now means coach Micho Sredojevic and his men must depart as soon as possible to still have enough time to squeeze in adequate preparation for Esperance.

Given that there is no direct flight to Tunis, the South African team will move from Soweto, to OR Tambo International Airport and to France in order to reach their final destination for next Tuesday’s crucial encounter.
