Orlando Pirates skipper Lucky Lekgwathi says he is happy after the MTN8 defending champions were drawn against SuperSport United in the two-legged semi-finals.
Lekgwathi is well aware it won't be a stroll in the park for Bucs, but his source of happiness stems from the fact that the first leg will be at SuperSport United's ground which he feels is an advantage for Pirates.
"We will give SuperSport the respect they deserve, because for us it will be a mountain to climb," he says.
"I'm happy because we will play the first match away, because even if we come away with a draw we know Orlando is our slaughterhouse. I think it is nice to start away, because it gives you an opportunity to finish the job at home," he adds.
The venues, dates and times will be announced this week.
