Now, more then ever, they need Mzansi to unite in voice and support.

Pirates and Sundowns find themselves in the exact same position. Needing to win by two if they are to qualify for the semi finals of their respective African continental tournaments. If either side concedes they will need to score 3 goals to go through!
