Normally rival teams rarely support each other on competitions they are set to play, but this time around Mamelodi Sundowns have rallied their support behind their fellow DStv Premiership rivals, Orlando Pirates who are set to face off against RS Berkane in the CAF Confederations cup final, later this evening at Godswill Akpabio International Stadium.
The head co-coach of Sundowns Manqoba Mngqithi is confident that the Buccaneers will triumph in Nigeria and they will return to South Africa with thus trophy. In reality Orlando Pirates will not only just be doing this for themselves, but this is also for the glory of the Premier Soccer League (PSL).
All eyes will be on the Buccaneers and it's believed that the fanbase of Nigeria will rally behind Orlando Pirates because of Olisa Ndah who was once a champion of Akwa United, a Nigerian super League club. The Buccaneers might have not been good in the DStv Premiership, but they managed to do well in the CAF Confederations cup as they are now in the final.
