Cape Town - Orlando Pirates coach Josef Zinnbauer is expecting a tough challenge in the Nedbank Cup clash with Bidvest Wits but insists his side are not under pressure to win.
The two Absa Premiership heavyweights clash at Orlando Stadium on Sunday (kick-off is at 15:00).
The Buccanneers have turned their home into something of a fortress once again, having gone unbeaten in their last ten fixtures at the Soweto venue and winning their last four in a row at home.
This may make Zinnbauer's side favourites, but the German mentor has refuted those claims and is expecting an evenly-contested encounter while claiming his side are not under pressure to win.
"We are not under pressure. For me what is important is the game that is coming, and not the past," Zinnbauer told Soccer Laduma.
"We have a chance to win the game that is coming against one of the best opponents in the league in Wits.
"It is difficult to play against Wits because they have a good squad and a top coach in Gavin Hunt who has won the league four times. They have experienced players and they play different systems.
"For us is to concentrate on this game and we will see what happens after that."
