The Brazilians are set to face Mascom Top 8 champions Jwaneng Galaxy at Lobatse Sports Complex on Saturday and will then take on Morupule Wanderers at the National Stadium on Sunday. Both matches will kickoff at 15h00.

This will give head coach Pitso Mosimane an opportunity to play all of the players in camp, as they fight to win a place in the starting line-up.
