Orlando Pirates vs Al Ahly Benghazi Predictions


Pirates are in very strong defensive form and have lost just one of their last 12 matches with eight wins. Benghazi are poor travellers and have been leaking goals galore in their away matches. I am tipping a home win for Pirates.

  • Orlando Pirates have won 8 of their last 12 matches (3 draws) (all competitions).
  • Orlando Pirates have kept 8 clean sheets in their last 12 matches (all competitions).
  • Orlando Pirates have seen under 2.5 goals in 8 of their last 12 matches (all competitions).
  • Al Ahly Benghazi have lost 3 of their last 4 away matches (CAF Confederations Cup).
  • Al Ahly Benghazi have conceded 16 goals in their last 7 away matches (all competitions).

Pirates are expected to be without Richard Ofori in goal and Happy Jele in defence due to injuries. Thabang Monare and is doubtful with a muscle problem in central midfield too.

Thembinkosi Lorch is close to a return but Deon Hotto is in a race against time to be fit. Terrence Dzvukamanja could be handed another start on the flank should those two miss out.

Al Ahly Benghazi sit third in their CAF Confederations Cup group after three matches. They lost 2-1 away to Enyimba before a good 1-0 home win against ES Setif. Their last match was a 0-0 home draw with Orlando Pirates last weekend.
