Orlando Pirates coach Milutin Sredojevic expects his side to be tested by Light Stars of Seychelles in the preliminary round of the CAF Champions League.
Bucs are set to host Light Stars at Orlando Stadium on November 27-28 before contesting the return tie on December 4-5.
Pirates on Tuesday disclosed their 27-man squad for the tournament, which notably includes new defensive signing Alfred Ndengane.
"I have seen the draw for our team. I believe it's competitive," Sredojevic said.
"From our side we have the semi-finals of the Telkom Knockout Cup against Kaizer Chiefs on 24 November and on 27 November we play Light Stars of Seychelles.
"We want to take one step at a time. There is no easy opponents anymore. We need to respect every opponent.
"Our strategic target is to go step by step. Our first step is to enter the group stages of the CAF Champions League."
The Mighty Buccaneers, kings of Africa in 1995, earned a return to the continental showpiece after finishing second in the Absa Premiership last season.
