Mhango urges Bucs team-mates to ‘leave everything on the field’ against Al Ahly on Sunday

Orlando Pirates forward Gabadinho Mhango says that their clash with Al Ahly at the Orlando Stadium on Sunday is a “must-win”.

The Buccaneers are currently second in Group A of the 2020/21 CAF Confederation Cup, on five points, a point behind leaders Enyimba, and one ahead of Al Ahly.

They could not overturn Al Ahly in Benghazi last week, drawing the match 0-0, but Mhango says it will be a different game altogether on their home turf.

Speaking to Pirates’ media department, last season’s top-scorer explained that the Bucs camp’s spirit is high ahead of the game.

“When we played them in Libya, I feel we were the better team. It’s just unfortunate that we did not have the best luck on the day. They are a tough opponent, but with us playing at home, it’s now a must-win game,” he said.

“We want to win this game because doing so will put us in a good position in the group. The feeling in the camp is that we must leave everything on the field on Sunday.”

Kick-off is at 18:00.
