SuperSport United midfielder Mandla Masango says playing in the CAF Confederation Cup is a bonus for them as they’ll be fit and ready to face Orlando Pirates in the final of the Nedbank Cup.

“It‘s going to be a tough encounter. It’s not easy to play Orlando Pirates,” Masango tells

“Pirates are a big team, but on the day if we're up to the task we can beat anyone. So, we are looking forward to the challenge. We will be ready for them when the time comes.”

United will face TP Mazembe of Congo in the CAF Confederation Cup at the Lucas Moripe Stadium on Tuesday at 20h00 before facing Amabhakabhaka in the Nedbank Cup final on Saturday.

“The good part about us is that we're still playing, we're still active with the CAF games. So, that’s a plus for us,” concluded Masango.

The majestic Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban, Kwa-Zulu Natal will host this year's special edition of the 2017 Nedbank Cup final between Pirates and United. The game will be played this weekend and will kick off at 20h15.
