Cape Town - Orlando Pirates have been issued a stern warning by their opponents Green Eagles ahead of Saturday's CAF Champions League preliminary round tie in Zambia.

Pirates play Eagles in a first-leg contest this weekend before the second leg on 23 August back in South Africa.

Nonetheless, The Stubborn's coach Aggrey Chiyangi is confident his team can produce a performance to beat the Sea Robbers on home soil.

He told cafonline.com: "The mindset that we want to put in our players is they have to make history again and that means we have to fight hard to make sure that we qualify to the next round.

"We know that Pirates will be difficult [to beat], but we will make sure that we will also do our best because in football anything can happen.

"You cannot just play football on paper, football is played on the pitch."

The game this Saturday is set to kick-off from 15:00 (SA time).
