Pirates' CAFCC opponents revealed

CAF Confederation Cup

Orlando Pirates will face off against Jwaneng Galaxy in the CAF Confederation Cup play-offs after the draw took place on Friday afternoon in Cairo, Egypt.

Pirates, who were given a free pass into the final round before the group stage, were drawn to face the Botswana Premier League champions, who dropped down from the Champions League.

Mamelodi Sundowns inflicted a 5-1 defeat over two legs against Galaxy, who will now face the Buccaneers for a lucrative spot among the 16 clubs who will be drawn into the four groups.

Botola side RS Berkane, the reigning champions and highest-ranked team in the competition, was the only team exempted from the draw while the only tie yet to be decided was Bloemfontein Celtic and Rivers United.
