According to the former Highlands Park number nine, no other team defends better than Jose Riviero’s Orlando Pirates this season, who have conceded three goals in eight league games and one MTN8 match.

“When it comes to Pirates this season, they have upped their game to such extent that you can see they have great players to be honest and ready to compete,” he said via FARPost.

“The Pirates backline is very difficult to score against. But as I have said, it won’t be easy but I believe that in each and every game we have played in this league we have managed to create chances in order to get fruitful results.

“It is now up to us [front players] to make sure that we score goals come Saturday,” the Sundowns center forward added.
